Schneider National, a provider of truckload, logistics and intermodal services, has strengthened its disaster prevention and recovery capabilities through participation in the Disaster Recovery Institute International (DRII) Master Business Continuity Professional certification program.
Business continuity management is a holistic management process that identifies potential impacts on an organization and provides a framework for effective responses that protect the interests of its customers and business areas.
“Managing freight across the supply chain requires complex information technology systems and networks,” explains Judy Lemke, Schneider National’s executive vice president and chief information officer. “Ensuring the safety and continuous operation of this infrastructure is a priority for us.”
The Master Business Continuity Professional certification is awarded to business continuity professionals who have more than five years experience in the field, with specific experience in seven professional practice subject areas. The core subject areas include business impact analysis, developing business continuity strategies, developing and implementing business continuity plans and maintaining and exercising these plans.
Schneider National business continuity coordinator Bill Marotz was certified by the DRII this fall, bringing to a close an eight-year effort to secure certification. Marotz has been a member of the Schneider IT team since 2003.
