About Us

Driven by excellence, innovative by design

Schneider was built on four core values that remain in place today and move the company forward. And every day, these values deliver for shippers and carriers like you.

Gain from our experience

In 1935, Al Schneider sold the family car to buy the first truck. Al, and his son Don after him, foresaw the growth of our roadway system, the need for shipping companies and the value in multimodal and logistics solutions to get goods where they need to be. 

They built the company on values — and they built it to last. Today, we have 85+ years of experience serving customers with excellence and innovation.

Enhance safety

Schneider is so committed to safety that Omaha Orange was selected as the color of our fleet to ensure high visibility on the road. You can’t miss us – on purpose. We’re also committed to ongoing safety programs and technology from in-cab communications to the OnGuard™ collision mitigation system.

Embrace sustainability

Sustainability is key at Schneider. In recent years, we’ve implemented 20 key fuel-efficient features within our fleet, and we continue to identify future solutions for shipping freight sustainably.

Give back with us

We support many social programs in the communities where we live and work. One example is our own Schneider Foundation. Donating more than $2.0M annually, the Foundation helps hundreds of organizations in health and human services, and education, children’s causes plus arts and culture.


Be part of a community

At Schneider, we’re a diverse, innovative and energetic community. This is where you can be yourself, and be appreciated for what you do — whether on the road, in the office, at the warehouse or in maintenance. If you like what you hear, we’d like to hear from you.

Supporting the armed forces

We actively recruit veterans because they've proven to be smart, hard-working professionals who are natural leaders; more than 15% of our associates have a military background. And we're proud to have been named a top military friendly employer by VIQTORY, Monster and Military.com, among other military hiring awards.
