New equipment means fewer repairs, giving you more time to get behind the wheel and do the job you love. Most of Schneider’s tractors are Freightliner® conventional. Most tractors are equipped with:
“The trucks had newer technology and seemed more reliable. I’ve had my latest truck for three years and though it’s racked up 515,000 miles, it still runs great!”
- Freddie Jordan, Schneider driver
Each new unit includes the OnGuard Collision Mitigation System. OnGuard uses radar sensors to monitor vehicles in front of you on the road. If a potential rear-end collision is developing, the system will give you an audible warning and the brakes will shake the truck. If you don’t immediately decelerate, the system will automatically dethrottle the engine and provide up to .35Gs of braking power. As the driver, you are always in control and can apply more brake power if necessary.
Over 25 years ago, we installed the industry’s first satellite system, connecting a nationwide network of drivers and equipment and leading the industry into the future. Today, we’re doing it again. Our fleet is fully equipped with the new and improved wireless OmniTRACS Mobile Communication Platform.
“Technology is constantly changing, so you need to educate yourself to keep up with trends. Constant re-evaluation also helps you continue to build confidence, develop good habits and keeps you on top of your game.”
- Shawn Nilchian, Schneider driver
OmniTRACS Mobile Communications Platform (MCP 200)
The MCP200 device includes a color touch screen and pull-out keypad. It’s like a laptop and a tablet in one, specially designed for truck drivers.
You’ll have access to weather conditions, websites and personal email accounts at designated, secure Wi-Fi hotspots.
Text-to-voice features will give you messages and turn-by-turn directions as you drive — eliminating the need to stop and read messages, directions or new work assignments.
Container – and Trailer-Tracking Technology
Schneider’s van trailers and intermodal containers now have the OmniTRACS Enterprise Services’ Trailer Track 210 installed. This technology provides continuous, real-time information regarding the location and load status of each trailer and container. Within a matter of minutes, the new technology transmits information from the trailer to the cab to enhance your productivity.
New equipment means more than just a comfortable experience for our drivers. It’s also better for our planet. By keeping our tractor fleet younger, we’re able to achieve our green initiatives. The engine inside each of the 3,000 new tractors meets the Environmental Protection Agency’s 2010 emission requirements. In addition, these tractors have features to reduce drag, optimize fuel efficiency and improve mileage per gallon. Annually, the new trucks will save almost 2 million gallons of fuel and over 22,000 tons of carbon dioxide emissions.
Schneider’s fleet also consists of over 30,000 van trailers, 14,300 intermodal containers and 1,600 tanker trailers. With so many units available, we are better equipped to reduce costly trailer searches and wait times for loading and unloading, resulting in more logged miles for our drivers each and every day.
