PUSLINCH – Schneider International is closing its Canadian operations, including the location near Brock Road in Puslinch.
“Despite the dedication and best efforts over many years, Canadian-based operations do not fit within Schneider’s long-term strategic focus,” reads a statement from the company.
“This decision was difficult. The change will affect all 150 Canadian-based associates and drivers. We are working with associates during the transition.”
The company announced the change on Jan. 14.
The statement says company trucks and equipment will transfer to the U.S. network and the Puslinch property will go up for sale this month.
“We expect Schneider will no longer have Canadian-based operations by the end of March,” the statement reads.
“We have notified all our Canadian associates and will remain in regular communication with them over the coming months.”
Schneider is an international trucking, transport and logistics business based in Green Bay, Wisconsin that started as a family business and has grown to international stature.
