GREEN BAY, Wis. — Schneider Logistics has developed a new Hours of Service (HOS) training program for carriers.

The program is customizable and is intended for carriers and their internal employees. It outlines how the new U.S. HOS (which go into effect Jan. 4, 2004) will work. The new rules are presented in a clear and concise manner, the company says.

The materials include a complete training guide, detailed examples for each logging scenario, facilitator notes, driver workbooks and a self-test.

Schneider National has trained more than 8,500 of its own drivers using the program and plans to continue training throughout the year

“This is a safety initiative that transcends the competitive nature of our industry. It is important that everyone associated with the transportation industry understands the new regulations prior to their implementation in 2004,” said Brian Hancock, vice-president and general manager of Schneider Logistics. “Schneider Logistics has made these materials available due to requests from its carrier network and the overwhelming success of the materials in their deployment at Schneider National.”
