Schneider National announced it will close a pair of facilities on Nov. 17, laying off a total of 105 employees. The fuel, maintenance and operations locations in Seville, OH, and Green Bay, WI, are the two least used in the company’s national network of operating centers, the carrier said.
“We regularly assess our operating center locations to ensure that we have a cost-effective and business-efficient network to meet the needs of our customers and drivers. Freight flows, driver domiciles, customer locations and the maintenance and fueling requirements of our fleet are all taken into consideration,” said Mark Rourke, president, van/truckload for Schneider National.
Affected employees will receive severance packages, career transition services and an extended employee assistance program, Schneider said. Approximately 80 office associates in Green Bay will be relocated to another facility in the Green Bay area. No driving positions will be affected.
The company will also allow any affected employees to apply for any available Schneider job openings for which they are qualified.
