APUs and bunk heaters
Schneider is proud to feature Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) as part of our standard spec on most new trucks, giving drivers unlimited electrical power, even with the engine off. Keep the heat or AC on for a comfortable break or sleep, and enjoy the warmth of a bunk heater for even greater comfort.
Power inverters and outlets
Use the devices that improve life on the road with our factory-installed 1,800-watt pure sine wave power inverters and outlets — microwaves, coffee makers, TVs, vacuums, slow cookers and more. Drivers asked for them, and we listened.
Memory foam mattresses
New 8-inch memory foam mattresses give you a restful break on the road. Coupled with a variety of premium interior upgrades, Schneider’s new trucks could put most RVs to shame.
Team and Solo trucks feature factory-installed refrigerators, giving you the ability to keep food and drinks cold on the road, helping you better meal plan and ultimately save money. A shelf designed for a microwave expands your options even more.
Compass mobile app
Schneider’s state-of-the-art custom app puts powerful technology at your fingertips. Tap into GPS trailer tracking, rate customer locations, review work details, get pay statements, watch training videos, access Schneider news and more.
Team drivers get a free satellite radio and free subscription, while solos still get the satellite antennae. With hundreds of channels to listen to, you’ll never run out of great content to listen to as you rack up your miles and money. Of course you’ll also have AM/FM, weather band, MP3/USB and an auxiliary input to enhance your audio options.
New tablets and electronic logging
Schneider gives a Samsung Galaxy tablet to drivers with free data to use anywhere for work. The tablet is assigned to the driver, not the truck, so you can use it in and out of the cab. We’re phasing out an in-cab device that still functions as an electronic log. E-logs have been federally mandated since 2017, but Schneider has mastered their efficient use since 2010.
Traffic cameras and telematics
Schneider uses several tractor cameras to protect drivers against false claims. They do not face the driver and do not record audio. Forward-facing cameras watch the road ahead, and rear-facing cameras attached to the side mirrors watch the side of the tractor and trailer. Adaptive cruise control, pedestrian detection, intelligent high beams and side guard assist are a few new features.
