Union Pacific Announces Acquisition of Shares in Motor Cargo Exchange Offer

OMAHA--November 30, 2001--Union Pacific Corporation (NYSE: UNP) and Motor
Cargo Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: CRGO) today announced that Union Pacific has
accepted the Motor Cargo shares which were tendered for exchange in the
exchange offer which commenced on October 31, 2001, whereby Union Pacific
offered to exchange, at the election of the Motor Cargo shareholders, each
outstanding share of common stock of Motor Cargo for either 0.26 of a share of
Union Pacific common stock, $12.10 in cash or a combination of both. The offer
was made pursuant to a previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger,
dated as of October 15, 2001, and a tender offer statement, dated October 31,
2001, as amended.

The offer expired at midnight, New York City time, yesterday, November 29,
2001. All Motor Cargo shares validly tendered, and not properly withdrawn,
prior to the expiration of the offer have been accepted for exchange and will
be exchanged promptly for either Union Pacific common stock or cash, as per
the election of each tendering Motor Cargo shareholder. Approximately
6,708,800 Motor Cargo shares were tendered in the offer, prior to its
expiration, which constitutes approximately 98.3% of the total number of
outstanding shares of Motor Cargo. In addition, the preliminary count by the
exchange agent indicated that an additional 163,100 Motor Cargo shares were
tendered pursuant to notices of guaranteed delivery. Substantially all of the
Motor Cargo shareholders who tendered their shares elected to receive shares
of Union Pacific common stock in the offer.

Pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Merger, upon acceptance by Union Pacific
of the Motor Cargo shares, Union Pacific was entitled to appoint five members
to the board of directors of Motor Cargo. Union Pacific has appointed James R.
Young, Carl W. von Bernuth, Mary S. Jones, Joseph E. O'Connor, Jr. and James
J. Theisen, Jr. to serve as members of the board of Motor Cargo. Except for
Marvin L. Friedland and Louis V. Holdener, who have continued as members of
the Motor Cargo board, all former members of the board of directors of Motor
Cargo have resigned.

Following the mailing of an information statement to the remaining Motor Cargo
shareholders, Union Pacific intends to merge Motor Cargo with Motor Merger
Co., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Union Pacific. In the merger, the remaining
Motor Cargo shareholders will receive in exchange for each outstanding share
of common stock of Motor Cargo $12.10 in cash.
