Schneider National Inc. has been named Carrier of the Year by FedEx Ground, a division of FedEx. Additionally, Schneider National’s record for on-time delivery during the 2007 fiscal year has been recognized with the FedEx Smart Post 100 Percent Service Award.
“We’re very proud that FedEx turns to Schneider National to help keep their strong reputation for delivering packages that absolutely, positively have to get there overnight,” says Dan Van Alstine, senior vice president and general manager of van/truckload at Green Bay, Wis.-based Schneider. “Shippers need a transportation provider who can ebb and flow with their business and can respond quickly to their rapidly changing needs. That’s the forte of Schneider’s expedited service.”
Serving delivery hubs in Chicago, Dallas, California and throughout the southeastern United States, Schneider Expedited helps FedEx move its 3.3 million packages each day. The FedEx Carrier of the Year award is based on on-time delivery service, capacity availability and safety. This year’s awards represent the second and third FedEx wins for Schneider National.
