Schneider has now held nine Facebook chats in 2016 with three more left to finish out the year. Our recent September chat had an influx of questions from prospective drivers about Schneider’s driving opportunities. I wanted to provide answers to those top questions from prospective drivers and fill you in some good news coming from Schneider.
First, I’d like to share some good news we discussed. Schneider plans to start building a new facility in Phoenix very soon and expects to have it finished in the spring of 2017. We are also finalizing equipment purchases for next year, including tractors, trailers, containers and chassis. All new sleeper tractors will come with factory-installed 1,800-watt power inverters, which drivers are providing great feedback on.
