I have seen some youtube videos about Schneider trucking and it seams that the drivers are wearing company shirts. I don't know if this if for the video or all drivers have to wear company shirts. Just curious. Anybody know? Thanks Mark

I currently work in the shipping and receiving department at my company. I have many Schneider drivers that come in. Most of them do wear at least a Polo shirt with their company logo on it. Also company jackets. I don't know if that is a full time requirement of their drivers.

When I was at Schneider Bulk we did not receive any company shirts or hats. I think some drivers buy them from the company store, they also reward drivers with that sort of stuff for certain milestones, like a year without accidents, or hitting MPG goals, that sort of stuff. Or maybe certain dedicated accounts provide them to the drivers. Not sure.

Schneider does not require you to wear a company shirt and they do not provide them for free. I bought shirts and I always wear one when I am at a customer's facility. I like looking professional in the eyes of the customer.

That's a good practice Richard, no matter what position you are in. (My former military days taught me the value of that!)

For some reason I thought that the only division at Schneider with a required uniform was intermodal - I'm not 100% sure on that. Something's telling me I saw that on their website on a FAQ or something...

Intermodal:

Transporting freight using two or more transportation modes. An example would be freight that is moved by truck from the shipper's dock to the rail yard, then placed on a train to the next rail yard, and finally returned to a truck for delivery to the receiving customer.

In trucking when you hear someone refer to an intermodal job they're normally talking about hauling shipping containers to and from the shipyards and railyards.
