Trucking Giant to End Operations in Canada By March
Green Bay, WI — One of trucking’s largest carriers is planning to wind down operations in Canada in the next couple of months.
In a statement on Friday, Schneider told Transportation Nation Network (TNN) it is changing course regarding its Canadian-based operations.
“Despite the dedication and best efforts over many years, Canadian-based operations do not fit within Schneider’s long-term strategic focus,” the mega carrier said. “This decision was difficult.”
The change will affect all 150 Canadian-based associates and drivers as the company trucks and equipment will soon transfer to the fleet’s U.S.-based network.
Additionally, Schneider is selling its 39-acre Guelph, ON, property at auction later this month.
“We expect Schneider will no longer have Canadian-based operations by the end of March. We have notified all our Canadian associates and will remain in regular communication with them over the coming months.”
The news comes as just last week the company announced its growing its dedicated operations with the acquisition of Ohio-based truckload carrier, Midwest Logistics Systems (MLS).
The deal was valued at $263 million and adds over 1,000 professional drivers operating 900 tractors across 30 central U.S. locations.
