Schneider Boosts Training Engineer Pay Rate by 45 Percent

Drivers Find New Incentive to Join Training Program

GREEN BAY, Wis. – (September 24, 2015) – Teaching someone a valuable skill can be one of the most rewarding experiences for an individual. Schneider, one of the nation’s largest truckload carriers, has updated its training engineer program to bring even more value to the experience – a rate increase averaging 45 percent.

Training engineers are Schneider drivers who become teachers, imparting their knowledge on new drivers joining the Big Orange fleet. After a new driver receives their CDL and goes through a week of additional classroom training at Schneider, they move on to phase two of their training: behind-the-wheel instruction with a training engineer. The training engineer supervises until the new driver is ready to hit the road on their own.

Schneider Intermodal Now Offers Easier Cross-Border Customs Clearance and Inspection for Select Commodities

Peat moss, pet food, soybean flour and cream substitutes now to be inspected in Mexico

GREEN BAY, Wis. (September 15, 2015) – Shipping select commodities that originate in the U.S. or Canada and move into Mexico via rail is now easier for Schneider Intermodal customers.

The program offers Schneider Intermodal shippers streamlined cross-border clearance and inspection service for select commodities that previously required additional handling at the U.S. border. Working with Mexico’s Servicio Nacional de Sanidad, Inocuidad, y Calidad Agroalimentaria, (SENASICA), Schneider Intermodal can now move peat moss, pet food, soy bean flour and cream substitutes across the border with inspections in Mexico instead of at the border. Simplifying this process saves cross-border shippers time and money.
