Schneider opens new Dallas facility built on driver feedback

Schneider's new Dallas facility

Schneider has opened a new Dallas facility — the second largest in its network across the U.S. and Canada — that is preparing for a grand opening celebration and driver hiring event on March 5.

Located along the I-45 and I-20 corridor, the new Dallas facility at 1211 E Pleasant Run Road in Wilmer, Texas, is close to several customers, restaurants and truck stops. Driver feedback was used throughout the design and construction of the facilities, which replaces the previous location at 34500 LBJ Freeway that served Schneider drivers since 2000.

A map shows the new Dallas facility located about 10 miles southeast of the old facility.

Driver, office and maintenance associates made the move to their new home official at the end of January.
