GREEN BAY, Wis. – Schneider National is now offering a $10,000 sign-on bonus to experienced teams ($5,000 per team driver) who are hired before Sept. 30, 2010. In addition, drivers will enjoy the advantages of working for a company with some of the best team driving benefits in the industry.

“Teams joining Schneider National can expect advantages to reach far beyond the sign-on bonus,” said Mike Hinz, vice president at Schneider National. “Schneider team drivers have the opportunity to earn an additional $.06 per mile (vs. solo drivers), have priority dispatch and enjoy 99 percent no-touch freight.”

Schneider was recently designated a Top Paying Carrier by the National Transportation Institute, an independent research firm that benchmarks driver pay packages. In addition to a top-rated compensation package, Schneider drivers can count on a new industry-leading, in-cab technology platform that provides a commercial driver GPS directions system, access to the Internet and other features; and low-cost meals and laundry facilities at 22 Operating Centers. Team drivers also are assigned late model Volvo or Freightliner tractors.

“As our expedited freight business continues to grow, so does our need to hire more team drivers,” noted Hinz. “Schneider is really living up to its reputation as the busiest carrier in North America. New and existing customer demand provides great, consistent miles each week. For drivers looking to maximize their earnings potential, there really is no better option in the industry. We have an industry leading pay package and the miles to match.”

Although not eligible for the sign-on bonus, Schneider will also help match solo drivers looking for a team partner.
