Con-way Truckload said it has purchased 525 new tractors from Kenworth Truck Co. and Navistar International Corp.

The truckload carrier said it purchased 325 Kenworth T680 models and 200 Navistar ProStar units and that it selected the tractors based on input from drivers.

Hundreds of drivers participated in product reviews and surveys, with a majority selecting the Kenworth T680 model, favoring the interior and increased width in the bunk, according to Con-way.

The addition of the 2014 Navistar ProStars was based upon positive driver feedback on cab comfort, the truckload carrier said.

The tractors are being delivered throughout the year, and the same amount of purchased tractors will be retired as they reach 500,000 miles, according to Con-way.

Con-way Truckload is a subsidiary of Con-way Inc. which is ranked No. 3 on the Transport Topics Top 100 listing of U.S. and Canadian for-hire carriers.
