San Mateo-based Con-Way Inc. (CNW), the nation’s largest regional trucking firm, has changed the name of its truckload operating unit from Contract Freighters Inc. to Con-Way Truckload, the company announced Thursday.

Con-Way completed the $750 million acquisition of the privately held truckload carrier in August.
