Schneider (NYSE: SNDR), a premier provider of trucking, intermodal and logistics services, announced it is implementing a driver pay increase next month.

This is the company’s latest pay increase for driver associates across both Schneider’s solo and team fleets. Many Schneider driver associates will earn up to an additional $.04 per mile effective January 24.

“We are committed to rewarding company drivers for the safe and professional work they do to excite our customers,” said Dave Geyer, EVP and Group President of Transportation and Logistics at Schneider. “Our focus is on making Schneider driving careers the best in the industry. Pay is certainly a component, among many other areas that we are continually upgrading.”

The latest round of pay increases at Schneider is in addition to many significant improvements the company made in 2020 to put more money in drivers’ pockets while also improving their work experience:

  • Added six paid holidays per year
  • Adjusted truck speed from 63 to 65 MPH
  • Implemented Weekly Guarantee Pay program for inexperienced drivers

Further investments in equipment, technology and facilities focused on driver productivity, comfort and safety will continue.

“We are proud of the incredible performance of our drivers every day, but especially during the extraordinary conditions of 2020,” said Geyer. “This performance is creating opportunities to grow with customers while providing more opportunities for drivers and our company. Ultimately, it’s this service that our customers value the most, and we are rewarding the drivers who provide excellent customer service.”

Schneider will continue weekly onboarding for experienced and new CDL drivers through the holiday season as well as reserving spots into January. Drivers interested in working for a company that respects and rewards safe, professional work can visit SchneiderJobs.com.
