Global retailer selects Schneider for the fourth time in the award’s 10-year history
Schneider National announced today it has been selected as the 2007 Intermodal Carrier of the Year by Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. Schneider was notified of this year’s honor after Wal-Mart’s annual evaluation of its trucking and logistics services providers. Since the award’s inception in 1997, the premier provider of transportation, logistics and intermodal services has held this title in three other years: 2002, 2003 and 2004.
‘We consider many factors when determining the winner of this award, including overall dedication to customer service, operational excellence and the ability to offer creative solutions to our complex supply chain opportunities,’ said Chris Sultemeier, senior vice president of transportation for Wal-Mart. ‘We are pleased to recognize Schneider National for its outstanding intermodal performance in 2007.’
‘Receiving this award from Wal-Mart is a great honor for our organization and a clear demonstration of the high level of service we provide in the intermodal line of business,’ said Bill Matheson, president, Schneider National Intermodal. ‘Of course, our ability to provide such award-winning service stems from the terrific drivers and customer service associates on the Schneider team. Because of their diligence and commitment to excellence, we’re able to help Wal-Mart achieve results by keeping products on the shelves day-in and day-out.’
