Some call it sustainability. We call it good business.

As a transportation company, we recognize that sustainability is an important driver of better business performance. That’s why we are integrating a sustainability mindset across our entire enterprise through transparency and proactive disclosure.

Think outside the truck

There’s more than one way to get from point A to point B. At Schneider, we align our company with intermodal partners that share our commitment to operating in an energy-efficient manner. Every year, we save 700 million pounds of CO2 by working with railroads that can move a ton of freight up to 500 miles on a single gallon of fuel. In 2021, we celebrated 30 years of our intermodal offering, a sustainable and efficient transportation solution.

Work with carriers that invest in green tech

Smarter companies know success is linked to sustainability. This is particularly true for those that depend on the supply chain for growth. Yet the challenges are daunting: volatile fuel prices, increased regulation, stakeholder pressure. To remain competitive, shippers must embrace green investments, technologies, practices and policies throughout the chain.

We know the future is electric

Smarter companies know success is linked to sustainability. This is particularly true for those that depend on the supply chain for growth. We know that a sustainable future is electric. That’s why we are investing and collaborating with our supply chain stakeholder to make that future a reality. In 2022, we will deploy 50 Freightliner eCascadias (Class 8 battery-electric truck) to our Southern California Intermodal operations. Funding is part of the Joint Electric Truck Scaling Initiative.

We will add five more eCascadias with additional route options also in Southern California as part of the Air Shed Grant initiative.
