The new Regional Logistics Center (RLC) in Toronto is it first outside the US. The expanded brokerage service in Canada is part of a move begun with the opening of a Schneider Logistics RLC in 2005. Since then, the company has added the service centers in Atlanta, Dallas and Reno, and moved its first RLC from Evanston, IL to Chicago. All told, Schneider Logistics has a network of more than 10,000 third-party carriers.
The business model is one that permits a Schneider RLC customer to interact with a single sales representative who then matches the shipping need to the best transportation mode. “With the addition of our new Toronto-based RLC, we expand our ability to provide the best shipping solutions for our customers while growing our relationships with independent transportation providers,” says Mitch Weckop, general manager of transportation for Schneider Logistics.
