GREEN BAY, Wisc. – To honour the best drivers on the road, Schneider has created a ‘Haul’ of Fame where drivers who have accumulated 3 million consecutive safe-driving miles and/or have 20 consecutive years of safe, accident-free driving are named and inducted.
“We have been honouring our best drivers for achieving safety milestones, including million mile and consecutive safe driving milestones, for a long time,” said Chris Lofgren, president and CEO of Schneider. “Now, with the Haul of Fame, we’re going the extra mile. This is the Schneider way of recognizing driver associates who reached milestones in safety and excellence that very few in our industry have achieved. It’s also tied to our #1 core value, Safety First and Always.”
At the initial launch of the Haul of Fame 179 drivers were inducted. Schneider expects to add 10-15 drivers each year.
Those who are recognized in the Haul of Fame have a plaque with their name and achievements on the wall of Schneider’s headquarters in Green Bay, Wisc. In addition, the inductee receives a duplicate copy of the plaque.
“The industry standard for safe miles is 1 million,” said Todd Jadin, Schneider’s vice-president of associate relations and talent management. “Clearly the drivers in our Haul of Fame have reached a level far beyond that, so we too were inspired to go above and beyond for this special group of people. The Haul of Fame distinction and tribute wall provides us the opportunity to shine a very bright spotlight on these incredible drivers.”
