The expansion includes the addition of 500 trucks and more drivers to the company's regional fleet.
Schneider first launched its regional service to Western U.S. customers in January, providing service to a seven-state area including Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon, Utah and Washington. The new South-Central Regional service will add an additional nine states to that list: Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana, Tennessee, Mississippi and Alabama. Regional terminals will be located in Dallas, Houston and Memphis and will serve as hubs for customer service representatives and drivers who are dedicated solely to this region of the country. Regional drivers develop regular driving routes, allowing them more time at home and consistent workloads.
Marc Rogers is leading Schneider's Regional offerings in both the Western and South-Central United States. "We have had an overwhelmingly positive response from our customers using Schneider's Regional service in Western states," said Rogers. "Combining a high level of service with competitive prices and the capacity of a large carrier that's close to home is exactly what today's customers want and need." The positive response led us to expand Schneider Regional into nine more states--eventually adding 500 units and more jobs to our regional fleet."
Schneider's portfolio offers three solutions for dry van truckload: expedited, long-haul and short-haul regional.
