    Largest privately owned truckload carrier to replace about 75 trucks a week in 2012

    Schneider National, the largest privately owned U.S. truckload carrier, is replacing one-third of its truck fleet, purchasing more than 3,000 new trucks in 2012.

    That equates to 75 new trucks a week, the Green Bay, Wis.-based company said. Schneider will buy the 2012 and 2013 tractors primarily from Freightliner.

    Schneider National increased revenue 9.7 percent last year to approximately $3.73 billion, making it the seventh-largest trucking operator in the U.S.

    This year, the trucking company is diversifying its transportation portfolio, expanding its intermodal network in the East and its regional truckload operations.....................

    The only issue I have with this is the onboard system that can shut your truck down if you are too close to another vehicle. I live in a place where you have to be a defensive driver and if a driver pulls in front of me really close to me, I would much rather my truck not be shut off.
