Story of Schneider:
We started with a leap of faith

Time flies when you're working hard.

Al Schneider, Founder of Schneider

Al Schneider

Al Schneider took a leap of faith in 1935 when he sold the family car to buy our first truck. That investment is still paying dividends.

Al, and his son Don after him, foresaw the growth of our roadway system and the need for shipping companies and truckload services to get goods where they needed to be. 

Al and Don Schneider built the company on a firm foundation of safety, integrity, respect and excellence — and they built it to last. From the humble beginnings of a single truck, we've since grown into the premier truckload, intermodal and logistics companies in North America.

We encourage you to read the story of Schneider captured in the coffee-table book, Leap of Faith. It tells how father, then son, dreamed big, worked hard and delivered success to thousands of customers, associates and the communities where they work and live. It's an inspiring tale that lives on today. In the Schneider spirit, all proceeds from its sale are donated to the American Red Cross, Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Fisher House, as well as charities in Mexico and Canada.
