Hello all I'm hoping to start at Schneider soon and was wondering if anyone who works for them may be able to help. They say that if you live more then 75 miles away from the nearest oc you get to bring the truck home with you. But I am 72 miles away according to my GPS and have no vehicle currently as my pick up broke down. Does anyone know if they are willing to work with me on bringing the truck home since it's so close to the cut off? Thank you for reading this and stay safe out there

They might work with you, they prefer to park at OCs since they are secured facilities. I believe they said you must love more then 100 miles away, I don't remember exactly. I live like 2-3 miles away from my home terminal , so I park there.

Terminal:

A facility where trucking companies operate out of, or their "home base" if you will. A lot of major companies have multiple terminals around the country which usually consist of the main office building, a drop lot for trailers, and sometimes a repair shop and wash facilities.

Thank you jamie guess I'll just have to ask my recruiter when I talk to her again. I wonder if the different division may make a difference in how far away you can be?

She should be able to answer your question, you can probably call her up or email her if you have any questions. And I don think it does,but I could be wrong. I'm in the dryvan division.

Dryvan:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

I would be starting dry van regional and I will definitely call her soon

Regional:

Regional Route

Usually refers to a driver hauling freight within one particular region of the country. You might be in the "Southeast Regional Division" or "Midwest Regional". Regional route drivers often get home on the weekends which is one of the main appeals for this type of route.

Hi Kyle, I'm 115 miles from the nearest Schneider park facility. I currently am on home time and have a place to park at my home community. I have my tractor at home with me and plugged in. Super cold here. Talk to your DBL and find out. So far, I've found Schneider very easy to work with.
