Freightliner Execs Deliver 25,000th Big Orange Truck to Schneider National

Michael Darras, a 23-year Schneider driver who’s covered 3 million safe miles, was assigned to the specially decorated Freightliner Cascadia, painted in the carrier’s traditional high-visibility orange. His shirt’s green-and-gold colors appear to honor an even older Green Bay organization, the Packers of the National Football League.

Big orange trucks aren’t unusual in Green Bay, Wis., home of Schneider National Carriers. Even this one, loaded with the latest technologies and driver comfort features, wouldn’t be unique except that it’s the 25,000th Freightliner that Schneider has bought since 1998. So the builder’s executives went to Green Bay yesterday to mark its delivery.
