At least 300 truckers will be back on the road again. Schneider National, a $3.1 billion company that's one of the largest truckload carriers in North America, is 300 professional truck drivers in Texas, Oklahoma and New Mexico for its growing Dedicated and Bulk (tanker) divisions.
There's a lot of energy behind this hiring burst: It's fueled by new business with leading energy companies in the oil industry. Specifically, drivers will use either dry hopper tankers to deliver products into, or liquid tankers hauling condensate from, the oil extraction areas. That means that most of these new drivers won't have to make those grueling, cross-country runs.
