Schneider National Achieves 7% Reduction in Emissions Per Mile

Schneider National, Inc, a multimodal provider of transportation, intermodal and logistics services, achieved a 7% reduction of emissions per mile in 2023, resulting in the company accomplishing 90% of its 2025 goal.

The company now operates a large battery electric vehicle (BEV) fleet in North America, with nearly 100 Freightliner eCascadias. To power the trucks, the carrier opened a large-scale charging depot at its South El Monte Operations Center in California. Schneider’s BEV fleet surpassed 1.5 million zero emission miles in 2023.

The company also replaced two diesel yard spotters at its cross-dock facility in Southern California with electric yard spotters, saving an estimated 70,000 pounds of CO2 annually.  

Schneider also supported its customers in achieving sustainability goals, such as PepsiCo and Goodyear realizing their commitments to lowering emissions and building toward a more sustainable future.

“We continue to demonstrate what it means to be a leader in corporate responsibility — advancing not just our own priorities but also helping customers meet their sustainability goals,” said Schneider President and CEO Mark Rourke in a statement. “Whether it’s operating safely, being good stewards of resources, enriching our culture and fostering inclusivity, or making our communities stronger, we continue to make impactful strides toward our corporate responsibility objectives.”

Schneider is working toward four sustainability goals with a 2019 baseline, including to lower CO2 emissions by 7.5% per mile by 2025, achieve a 60% reduction in CO2 emissions per mile by 2035, and reach net zero status in all company-owned facilities by 2035.
