Schneider National Bulk Carriers, a division of Schneider National Inc, has been named the Preferred Lubricants Tank Truck Carrier for the Gulf Coast region by Shell Oil Products US. Shell presented Schneider a commemorative eagle statue at a recent awards ceremony in Green Bay WI.
The award was given to Schneider in recognition of its quality start-up procedures and dedication to customer service.
In October 2000, Shell reduced its transportation base to one carrier in the Gulf Coast region of the United States. Schneider was selected over seven other regional carriers to service Shell shipping locations in Texas and Louisiana and delivery locations from California to Michigan to Florida. In two years, Schneider increased Shell's shipments from 10 to more than 400 loads a month and also provided sole-source service to more than 15 distribution centers in the Gulf Coast region.
Schneider drivers, operations, and customer service associates also achieved 99% on-time pick-up and 98% delivery rates.
