GREEN BAY, Wis. — Schneider National has become FAST-approved after meeting the criteria set out in Canada Customs’ Partners in Protection (PIP) program.
“Thousands of Schneider National driver associates navigate interstates across the United States and in Canada every day,” said Tanya Smith, manager, Partners in Protection Program, Contraband and Intelligence Services Directorate. “These men and women are the eyes and ears of our roadways and play an important role in the Partners in Protection program by serving as another line of defense against terrorism and contraband.”
Schneider National is North America’s largest truckload carrier and becoming a FAST-approved carrier was essential for the fleet.
“Schneider National is proud to participate in the Partners in Protection program and support the efforts of the Canada Customs and Revenue Agency to increase international security and foster the flow of legitimate trade between our countries,” said Scott Arves, president of transportation, Schneider National.
“These improvements in border crossing movements will translate into significant time and cost savings for both Schneider National drivers and our customers,” added Mike Hammond, Canadian operating center manager for Schneider National.
