Are you interested in a new type of hybrid semi truck that is 100% electric and makes it's own power to operate. No diesel fuel needed. The technology has been here for years now.
Just like Diesel/ Electric was first used in locomotives to haul extremely large loads. Which is now in the Toyota Prius electric cars. Which is out dated.
Or how about electric/ Hydraulic semi trucks that are in UPS trucks now. which can soon be out dated too very easily.
Their is a way that electric/ hydraulic can not only power a semi truck but also make it's own power to operate on the roads today.
I am trying to do the first semi truck that does just that since 2000. My fiances limit me to get a business loan to go into business now but will not for long. My financial problems were because of an accident that makes me a "Liability " for companies to hire me because of their insurance companies. I started a tree business to get the funds to go into this market while being a union member. I have worked at Diesel mechanics for railroad and on semi trucks.
I have also worked as a Industrial maintenance mechanic. Plus, went to college for Electronics / and electrical engineering also.
Presently, i am looking at charging $80,000. to convert used semi trucks. Which could give companies a major advantage at taking over the markets of trucking. Industry.
The question to you is do you want to hold your spot in the market or fall behind. Because companies like J.B hunt, XPO logistics, Swift, YRC & roadway or even the Railroads. would be interested too.
I am seeing if someone wants to be a business partner to save them money and make profits off of your competitors.
Why isn't your communication better? I'm really frustrated with your company. I had to drive myself to the airport in Pittsburgh. So I could attend your orientation in Green Bay. I've been gone 23 days now and parking is going to cost me over $400. No wonder you can't keep drivers !!! Someone needs to reimburse me for this. You people dropped the ball on this. All I've been getting from people here at the training center is the run around !!!!
I drove for Schneider for 4 years without ANY preventable traffic accidents----- but they fired me for "being too dangerous!" Their trucks have on,-board sensors that detect "Hard Braking" defined as slowing more than 8 mph per second. Their immediate assumption is Inattentive Driving or other poor driving. I had to stand on the brakes to avoid killing MANY 4-wheel MORONS that cut me off to turn directly in front of truck. They claimed that since I had too many Hard Braking Incidents, that I was a Safety Risk and had to be terminated IMMEDIATELY. Yes, with ZERO traffic accidents! A clean record for FOUR YEARS was irrelevant to these assholes! They will trump up any excuse they need to dump a loyal employee. They are a Crocodile Corporation!!
I see it daily.
I'm in training in Houston and who ever is setting up computer access has caused me to miss two tests. This is bad
I am trying to get in contact with the CEO. My Husband was treated very poorly during his month long process of becoming a Schneider intermodal driver.in Minneapolis Minnesota The trainer constantly talked about how old he was. Constantly berated him. Would smoke constantly. I won't stop until I speak with the CEO He has been an owner operated for over 30 years. He was so proud of his new position at Schneider; however it became very clear that this one person just cared about themselves. That's it for now.
Tell your husband to go somewhere else this company treat their employees like shit we are only a number here it's better company's out there I have been here 11 years and got sick gone fore three months was realeased from doc to go back been home five weeks now and still they not taking me back they really suck to take care of their employees even my supervisor told me bullshit and he sad welcome to corporate America
I am also trying to contact the CEO and the safety Manager is a joke. He does not know shit about safety and we all are a number to him. I have so much to show the CEO that he doesn't do his job. The drivers that have been with Schneider for a long time he shit on us and let's the new or 1 to 2 year drivers get away with safety problems. The DBL's act the same way. I have talk to a lawyer and I have a great case .. That is why we have so mean crashers. HE IS A JOKE
I am with you on this one. He thinks he knows but he thinks he can over power the drivers. Good luck with that one.
Doo is right. Schneider treats their drivers like an inconvenience and a disposable resource. I've worked on their P&G account for almost two and a half years. I ended up getting sick and needing two weeks off. I've been released with no restrictions by my primary care physician and a specialist and supplied them with the paperwork per their request. I then ended up going to their guy and cleared me.. they then wanted me to do another DOT physical and sent me to their person again and she cleared me also.. I just got another call from this 1st Lab/FS Solutions and it turns out I'm not done jumping through hoops. Schneider's P&G account at Lima was already 70+driver short when I got sick. And in the 2.5 months that I've been jumping through hoops they just lost another 6 drivers that I know of on nights. There is a reason why a company has to offer at $7,500-$10,000 sign on bonus to new drivers and that should be a red flag to anyone. There's a reason why you can't find any drivers in the Lima area anymore Schneider and that $10,000 sign on bonus isn't helping you out much either. Even all your Flex drivers that you brought in isn't a big enough Band-Aid to fix your problems. It used to be a nice account before you destroyed it.
