Six reasons to choose Schneider for your transportation needs


Share

Working with Schneider brings more benefits than just moving freight from point A to B

We have the solutions, services and expertise to give you more control over your supply chain and move you forward. Here are six reasons you should look to Schneider for your transportation needs.

Multi-modal solutions give you flexibility and capacity options

  • Dry van truckload: Industry-leading, agile van truckload capacity when and where you need it most. 

  • Intermodal: As an asset-based provider, we use our own tractors, chassis, containers, and drivers to keep your freight on track. 

  • Bulk: We have unmatched capacity for bulk shipping by tankers, all with the latest technology.

  • Less-than-truckload: Access Schneider’s vast network of prequalified carriers — along with our purchasing power — and simplify your LTL shipping experience. 

  • Refrigerated: From origin to destination, Schneider employs onboard technology to maintain the proper temperature and provide visibility throughout the route. 

  • Flatbed: Beyond standard flatbeds, we can source and configure any trailing equipment you need to haul.

Flexible capacity that moves with your business

Schneider provides the capacity you demand for secure, reliable delivery and a track record you can count on. We have access to the most capacity in the industry through asset-based and non-asset fleets that can flex with you as your business needs change.

Access to freight capacity with asset-based fleet and non-asset capabilities

As an asset-based carrier, we have more control over our equipment and give you ready access to the capacity you need. This allows us to: 

  • Swiftly provide solutions when things change. Look at the whole transportation journey rather than just the individual non-asset carrier portion. 
  • Adjust the supply chain as needed. 
  • Create pop-up fleets or temporary dedicated fleets when needed because we have a large inventory of asset-based equipment. 
  • Access to non-asset capabilities to swiftly provide solutions.
