Schneider National to Close Two Operating Centers

Sept. 17, 2009
Schneider National Inc. announced plans to close its operating centers in Seville, Ohio, and Green Bay, Wis.

The two facilities will close on Nov. 17. A total of 105 positions in office work, maintenance and driver services will be eliminated.

"We regularly assess our operating center locations to ensure that we have a cost-effective and business-efficient network to meet the needs of our customers and drivers. Freight flows, driver domiciles, customer locations and the maintenance and fueling requirements of our fleet are all taken into consideration,” says Mark Rourke, president of van/truckload for Schneider National.

Schneider plans to offer affected associates severance packages, career transition services and an extended employee assistance program. The company will also host job fairs in Seville and Green Bay to introduce affected associates to area employers.
