If you’re new to truck driving or are considering applying to become a driver with Schneider, you may be wondering what kind of truck driver resources are available to help you succeed. Schneider provides a variety of personnel and training resources to its drivers to ensure they feel comfortable doing their jobs.
Personnel Truck Driver Resources
Some of Schneider’s best resources are our associates. We want our drivers to have the support they need, so they never feel alone while on the road.
Each driver is assigned to a driver business leader (DBL), who acts as a manager, making sure that drivers have all the information that they need to succeed, and who is able to address any issues that arise.

Training Truck Driver Resources
Schneider offers many resources to ensure drivers are properly trained. We want our drivers to feel safe and prepared for the job when they hit the road.
In addition to quarterly training sessions, drivers can reference the “Highway to Success” manual they receive at orientation and log on to Compass, which includes an online training system that features instructions and tutorials for tasks and processes drivers will need to perform while on the job. Drivers can also download the Compass mobile app, which allows them to review work assignments, find available empty trailers, review their pay statements and more.
Schneider’s “Slice of Orange” blog is another great reference for drivers, with new blog posts typically added twice per week.
Outside of the resources that Schneider provides to its drivers, there are many third-party mobile apps that drivers can download to make life on the road a little easier. One of most popular is Trucker Path. The app helps locate nearby truck stops and truck washes, as well as points of interest like restaurants and shopping centers. Drivers can also use the app to check if upcoming weigh stations are open, find fuel stops and compare fuel prices.
Truck driver resources like these help make sure that drivers never feel alone or unprepared while on the road.
