Schneider leaves last-mile home delivery sector

Schneider National, Inc., a leading transportation and logistics services company in the U.S. has shut down its First to Final Mile Service

The Green Bay, Wis.-based carrier said:

“We have made the difficult decision to execute a structured shutdown of our FTFM service offering,” Mark Rourke, Schneider’s chief executive, said in a statement.

“This decision followed a careful assessment of the near and longer-term prospects and alternatives. We believe this course of action allows us to fully focus on our services within Truckload, Intermodal, and Logistics, is consistent with our portfolio management and capital allocation disciplines, and is in the long-term best interest of our Company and our stakeholders.”

“The Schneider associates involved with FTFM have invested a tremendous amount of energy and creativity toward this endeavor over the past three years, and we want to express our gratitude for their efforts,” Rourke continued. “We are looking at all opportunities to redeploy our affected associates based on role, geography, and business need.”

The FTFM offering primarily services business-to-business and business-to-consumer movements for product categories such as furniture, carpet, and appliances. The network, comprised of 26 terminal locations providing nationwide service, will shut down operations over the next several weeks. In support of FTFM customers, freight already in transit will be promptly delivered.
