Safety comes first at Schneider throughout our enterprise. Always has, always will. We believe in going above and beyond industry standards, simply because it’s the right thing to do. Not only does that protect your freight, it helps protect your business’ reputation from unnecessary accidents.
Our Responsible Care® Policy ensures the safety of our associates as well as the public. We are committed to complying with all the legal and Responsible Care® related requirements. In addition, we work with all stakeholders to continually improve technologies and processes that foster environmental health, safety and security concerns.
Schneider teaches and reinforces safe operations for everyone – from drivers and diesel technicians to office and warehouse associates. We employ a three-pronged approach to training (classroom, simulator and behind-the-wheel), proven to prepare new drivers. Recertification is also required of all drivers. And for those who’d like to brush up on their skills, we’ll even create individualized plans.
We’ve built smart systems into all aspects of the business. From proper load securement to sleep apnea screening and more, our processes are designed to protect your freight along with drivers, diesel technicians, office and warehouse associates. We even use real-time event notifications as training opportunities to intervene quickly. Schneider is always looking for ways to improve our processes and ensure compliance for the safety of all.
Technology makes a significant difference in safe operations. For this reason, Schneider was the first to install in-cab communication devices that help drivers plan the safest routes. Today’s version adds text-to-voice functionality so drivers can keep their eyes on the road. Pair this with our advanced ETAi technology and you can be sure that your freight will arrive safely with no surprises.
