Power Only trucking is a service in which third-party carriers pull Schneider trailers containing a shipper’s freight. Power Only can be added to a shipper’s standard Schneider service to meet a temporary demand, or it can become part of a long-term solution.
Power Only refers to the third-party carrier’s role of providing only the truck (also known as the “power”) while Schneider provides the trailers that will carry the shipper’s freight. Schneider coordinates the required number of third-party carriers and handles contracting their service. With so much experience, Schneider can deliver several benefits with Power Only shipping.
Shippers don’t have to worry about the hassle of finding and contracting with multiple third-party carriers — Schneider handles all the coordination.
Third-party carriers use Schneider FreightPower® to enable connection between themselves and shippers. Because shippers’ freight is hauled in Schneider’s trailers, which have enhanced tracking visibility, customers get real-time tracking updates.
Schneider has some of the strictest vetting criteria in the industry for third-party carriers, so shippers know they can trust the carriers in its network to be safe, secure and sustainable.
Existing Schneider customers work with the team of people they already know. If an issue should arise, they work with Schneider — not the third-party carrier — to resolve it. Plus, all Power Only freight still falls under Schneider’s cargo liability policies, which provides additional peace of mind that the freight is in good hands.
