Schneider National this week said that:

“In the fourth quarter, we leveraged the strength of our enterprise portfolio and demonstrated our ability to provide shippers additional mode optionality to cover their base and dislocated freight needs. Our Quest technology capabilities enabled the orchestration of acceptance and execution across our broad array of trucking, intermodal, and brokerage services in a restricted capacity marketplace,” stated Mark Rourke, Chief Executive Officer and President of Schneider.

“In our Truckload segment, we achieved an 86% operating ratio through effective yield management, dedicated new business growth, and cost initiatives. In our Intermodal segment, we grew order count 3% year over year despite meaningful rail congestion and allocation issues that resulted in missed revenue opportunities and added costs. Our Logistics segment achieved record quarterly revenue and earnings by providing value-added enterprise solutions in our traditional brokerage offering as well as in our rapidly maturing Power Only offering which utilizes our significant nationwide trailer pool presence. And, our recently launched digital Schneider FreightPower® carrier app supported the acquisition of additional capacity with minimal increase in staffing.”

“Our positive momentum of the fourth quarter has continued into 2021, setting up a strong start to the new year. Our key objectives are the continued growth of our dedicated, intermodal, and brokerage offerings while enhancing the margins of our truckload network business,” Rourke continued. “As I look back on 2020, first and foremost, I’m grateful for the health and commitment of our associates. The resiliency of our entire organization, especially that of our professional drivers, shined and in fact strengthened. I believe we are well-positioned for opportunities that lie ahead in 2021.”
