Any carrier that works with Schneider Logistics or Schneider National is eligible to join the program.
Bob Herndon, vice president Alliance Services for Schneider Logistics, said that in 2000, Schneider Logistics used more than 3,300 carriers to process orders totaling $819 million. Only 5 percent of the orders moved on Schneider National assets.
"The vast majority of freight we manage on behalf of our customers moves on our third-party carriers," Herndon said.
Through the new program, those carriers can receive fuel discounts of up to 4 cents per gallon at hundreds of fueling locations nationwide. For every 100,000 miles a fleet travels, carriers could save up to $500.
