Schneider National Inc. has announced improving its fuel surcharge program for owner-operators. Effective immediately, Schneider will pay fuel surcharges on both empty and loaded miles.

Additionally the company will offer a simple payout table to replace the company's previous fuel program formula, with the payout rate based on price bands relative to the weekly Department of Energy fuel price. Finally, the company will include the fuel surcharge with compensation for the load on the same weekly settlement.

"Fuel continues to be the top cost for owner-operators and fleet owners," said Mike Bethea, field operations manager--contractors for Schneider National. "Today's business climate is a difficult one and we want to help our owner-operators and fleet owners continue to succeed and become more profitable. This investment recognizes the value they bring to Schneider and our clients nationwide."

Schneider National contracts with nearly 3,000 owner-operators and fleet owners across North America. For more information, go to or call 800-447-7433.
