Schneider National crowned ‘Carrier of the Year’

by Canadian Shipper

GREEN BAY, Wis. — Schneider National has been named Carrier of the Year by consumer product producer Kimberly-Clark. Officials say Schneider was named champion because of its “innovative high-quality capacity solutions for over-the-road, intermodal and cross-border activity at virtually every Kimberly-Clark location.” This is Schneider National’s first win for this honour since the award’s inception.


“We recognize Schneider as a key ‘go-to’ strategic carrier to discuss internal initiatives and industry challenges,” said Steve Harmon, vice-president of transportation for Kimberly-Clark. “This award is a well-deserved win for Schneider who truly distinguished themselves in 2008. Their candour, insight and collaborative outlook throughout the entire organization helped us deliver the best service and value to our customers.”


Schneider’s efforts for Kimberly-Clark in 2008 included supporting the organization’s cost-reduction initiatives, conducting transportation symposiums for their transportation groups, delivering 98% on-time delivery, and helping with the conversion of a legacy load-bearing process. “Schneider delivered consistent value each quarter in 2008,” continued Harmon. “Their thought leadership, along with their willingness to embrace and accept change, has demonstrated a true partnership.”


“It is an honour to receive Kimberly-Clark’s Carrier of the Year award,” said Steve Matheys, Schneider National executive vice-president of global commercial sales. “This recognition is especially gratifying because it validates our collaborative relationship. It demonstrates that we consistently deliver more than transportation, logistics and intermodal services; we deliver business results.”
