CUSTOMER ADVISORY – Schneider Activates Protest Response Plan
June 1, 2020
Schneider is closely monitoring developments related to recent protests that are occurring in various cities across the United States. As a lead logistics provider, we take this situation very seriously and know that you do, too. We are taking the extra vigilance necessary to ensure the health and safety of others. Our priority – as always – is to protect the health and safety of our associates, our drivers, our customers and the general public.
At this time, freight is moving business as usual with a few exceptions where we are adjusting or canceling loads as necessary and communicating directly with the customers in affected areas. As a precaution, we have implemented additional protocols for our professional drivers to exercise an even greater level of awareness when transporting through areas where protests have been occurring and adherence to approved truck routes while obeying all road closure or barricade instructions. Additionally, we are in close communication with the railroads regarding service impacts occurring on their network, including ramp closures.
We will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates as warranted to ensure normal operations resume as soon as possible. In the meantime, reach out to your Schneider contact with any questions. We are here to help should you need additional transportation and logistics solutions to get your products to market. Thank you for your business.
