We have worked very hard to achieve this goal as evidenced by several significant accomplishments. DLI was the first company in the industry to provide real-time shipment updates.

“At Schneider, we’re all about doing right by our people. Ask any of them and they’ll tell you, we’re big where it matters and small where it counts. Everyday, our sales force is winning new business, our drivers are impressing our customers with record service levels and we’re keeping our promise to deliver great careers to the best people in the industry.”
For 74 years, we have remained true to our core values and have made decisions that lead both our business as a whole and our individual associates forward.
When you have the best people, you get the best results. That’s what Schneider is all about.
There is no truck driver on the road today more recognizable than the one behind the wheel of a Schneider tractor-trailer. For the last 75 years, we’ve employed the best the industry has to offer, hands down – the safest, most respected and seasoned group of truck drivers out there.
95% of our fleet are experienced truck driving professionals — 1,807 with a million or more accident-free miles under their belts. Another 2,324 experienced truck drivers joined us this year — and nearly a thousand of them came back after trying other companies.
Whatever you’re looking for, Schneider delivers.
All drivers are not created equal. By being big where it matters and small where it counts, Schneider is able to offer several types of driving careers to suit your needs and exceed your expectations. This year 75% of our drivers will get home weekly. That’s huge. It means you’ll get the miles you need and get home more often.
DART Trucking will be visiting Interstate Truck Driving School’s St. Paul location.
Dart Transit has a reputation as America’s top carrier for independent contractors. You can contract with Dart with confidence, knowing that it is a company that operates with integrity and professionalism. The Truckload Carriers Association (TCA) and Carriers Edge identified carriers with the strongest over-all programs for drivers and owner operators, and ranked Dart among the best carriers for professional drivers. Dart topped the field in 2010 as the Best Fleet for Owner Operators, and won “Best Fleets to Drive For” in 2009, 2010 and again in 2011.
According to the TCA, the strength of Dart’s contractor support programs encourages owner operator success – something we have known for years.
It starts with offering contract choices that allow you to pick an owner operator driving option that meets your individual needs.
Even though the economy isn’t where a majority of us would like it to be, there are bright spots.
“We’d already forecasted 5% freight growth for this year in what’s generally considered a lousy GDP [gross domestic product] growth environment, so there is significant upside potential,” Eric Starks, president of research firm FTR Associates, told Fleet Owner. (more…)
