More reasons owner-operators choose Schneider:

Steady Freight

Schneider owner-operators have exclusive access to one of the largest freight bases in the industry. For those on the Percentage Lease, it means you have plenty of options to choose from so you can make the decisions that are best for your business. For those on the Mileage Lease, it means we will keep you moving, ensuring optimum utilization.

Business Consulting Services

At Schneider, we make it our business to help your business succeed. That’s why we provide business consulting services through ATBS. They’ll help with taxes, accounting, bookkeeping and more. These services are free to Van Truckload and Tanker owner-operators for the first six months of your lease.

Maximum Purchase Power

Save on operating expenses with Schneider’s Purchase Power Program. In fuel alone, you can save up to $.25 per gallon at the pump through negotiated truck stop chains — plus a supplemental $.10 discount on fuel purchased in California, Oregon, Arizona and Washington — in addition to our fuel surcharge program. You’ll also get discounts on tires, insurance, maintenance and more.

CSA-Compliant Carrier

Protect your livelihood and save DOT inspection time by leasing with a CSA-compliant carrier. We will conduct a free inspection of your tractor before you start, followed by quarterly inspections to help prevent violations and ensure your equipment stays in safe condition.

Reliable Financing

In this tight credit environment, Schneider Finance offers low or no money down programs to help you lease or purchase a truck spec'd for both Van and Tanker.
