Reasons to be an Intermodal truck driver at Schneider:

Home Time

Schneider Intermodal is a great choice for drivers with families. Our regional truck drivers get home weekly or more, while local truck drivers are home every night. With Schneider Intermodal, you can be there for your family; then hit the road to do the job you love. Plus, we offer more options when it comes to work schedules. So whether your life works best on a Monday-Friday shift or a Friday-Tuesday, you can find a driving schedule that works for you.

Don't just take our word for it. Here's what regional driver Walter Thomas had to say about Schneider's Intermodal drivers home time:

“I love the regularity of knowing where I am going all the time. And I’m never too far from home.”
- Walter Thomas, Regional Intermodal driver

 

Steady Freight

Get ready to run — Schneider's Intermodal division is growing quickly. We've got a solid freight base that is continually expanding as Intermodal delivery becomes more popular. Between Fortune 500 retail shippers and medium-size manufacturers, Schneider has the freight to keep you moving year-round. And it's not just any freight; 75% of our Intermodal loads are drop-and-hook.

Continual Training

Schneider's number one core value is Safety First and Always. One way we reinforce that is through our driver training practices. In 2012, Schneider launched two new Training Academies for Intermodal drivers. They are strategically located in Chicago and Los Angeles — some of the busiest railroad regions in the United States. The four-day paid curriculum includes classroom learning and in-truck training to make sure you'll be successful and safe when you hit the road.

Don't just take our word for it. Here's what local driver Latressa Williams had to say about Schneider's Intermodal training program:

“I don't know too many companies that will literally show you exactly how it’s done; they’ll just send you out there. Schneider doesn't do that. They'll show you. They'll show you again. And they'll make sure that you do know and then they want you to show them again. Therefore, they'll feel safe and proud to say, 'Ok this is our driver. We stand behind his work and what he's doing because we taught him well.'”
- Latressa Williams, Local Intermodal driver

Bigger Money

Schneider Intermodal drivers average $42,000 - $60,000 a year, depending on experience and location. In addition to your base pay, you’ll have the opportunity to earn performance pay for driving safely each week and have access to unlimited referral bonuses.

Schneider also has the Pace Setter Recognition and Rewards Program, created exclusively for our Intermodal truck drivers. You can earn points by meeting various performance criteria — like having zero preventable accidents and zero log falsifications. Then you can redeem those points for your choice of more than five million prizes. It’s Schneider’s way of rewarding drivers who consistently go the extra mile and achieve exceptional results.

New Equipment

Schneider is the premium door-to-door asset-based Intermodal service provider in North America. That means we use our own trucks and our own containers to move freight for our customers. We’re committed to keeping those assets in tiptop shape and adding even more assets, as evidenced by several recent equipment investments:

  • Over 300 new Intermodal-specific tractors will be added this year with a long-term commitment to further reducing our fleet’s age
  • Only Intermodal provider in North America with 100% fleet coverage of trailer-tracking technology and cargo-sensing capabilities, increasing driver dispatch efficiency
  • Beginning conversion to new company-owned chassis fleet, improving equipment reliability and availability for drivers

Did you know…

Schneider has recently added intermodal trailers to its Tanker Division, an industry first. We saw a 75% increase in trailer load volumes in the first half of 2014 alone. We are adding job opportunities for drivers interested in intermodal work configurations while hauling liquid bulk chemicals.
