If a stop to a Con-way Truckload terminal is in your future, which it most likely is, be sure to grab some time for a workout. Most drivers know that our terminal facilities include laundry rooms and break rooms, but four out of our five terminals have a gym facility on-site, accessible 24/7 with your employee key card.
Lancaster, West Memphis and Taylor all have small exercise rooms. The Laredo facility in Texas, while it does not have a workout room, it has over 40 manicured acres where drivers are welcomed and encouraged to walk – fresh air and exercise. Truckload Headquarters in Joplin has a large workout facility and even a small basketball court to shoot some hoops.
Scared of the unknown? Don't be. See some images of service center facilities below. And don't forget, when you are on the road, 32 laps around a semi equals 1 mile!
Another perk at headquarters is the wash bay. You can have you truck washed 22 hours a day, and 7 days a week, as long as the temperature outside is above 39 degrees. Truckload employees also have access to break rooms, sleep areas, bathrooms, showers and laundry facilities.

While Laredo does not sport a gym, employees are encouraged to walk the perimeter of the 40 acre facility during the evenings and early morning. Like Joplin, there is also a wash bay available 22/7, break rooms, sleeping area, showers, bathrooms and laundry. After exercising and/or time on the road, many of our drivers take advantage of the covered patio with BBQ pits. We also use that space to host a cookout during driver appreciate week. A food truck also comes to the yard each weekday around 8:30 am and stays past lunch time selling breakfast tacos and other food items to keep drivers fueled.

At Lancaster we have a small workout room, laundry, bathrooms and showers, as well as driver break rooms. We host an annual driver appreciation cookout to coincide with national driver appreciation week.

I believe the one thing that stands out here in Taylor is the length of service of the employees here. I personally have been here 28 years, I have a manager working for me who has 23 years, and four other employees with 15+ years. This is out of a staff of 10 people so you can see there is a lot of experience here and people enjoy what they are doing.
