PORTLAND, Ore. — Schneider National, Inc., a provider of transportation, logistics and intermodal services, has unveiled its new Operating Center (company-owned truck stop) in Portland, Ore.
Schneider expanded and relocated from its previous facility in the state with the help of a $610,000 financing package from the Portland Development Commission (PDC).
The Operating Center serves as a regional hub for more than 450 Schneider drivers living in the West, including drivers in Oregon, Washington and California.
“After 20 years in our former location, it became necessary to expand operationally to better support our drivers’ needs, and the company’s hiring efforts and training programs, said Todd Jadin, senior vice president of operations at Schneider National.
Schneider National’s new Operating Center will provide company drivers and owner-operators with an array of amenities including laundry facilities, food service, Internet access, equipment maintenance and fuel. Services will be available 24 hours per day and the new Operating Center also offers office space for recruiting and for training on the company’s innovative driver simulator. On average, approximately 100 drivers per day will come through the facility.
