Nation's Largest Truckload Provider Hiring 100 New Drivers in Central Virginia; Dedicated Division Offers Up to $2,000 Sign-On Bonus for Company Drivers and Owner-Operators

Schneider National Inc., the nation's largest full truckload provider, today announced its plans to hire 100 new professional truck drivers in the greater Gordonsville, Va. area.

The company is expanding its presence in Virginia to support a number of clients in the region, including a distribution center for a FORTUNE 500(R) retailer and one of the world's largest building and consumer products manufacturers.

Over the next 30 days, Schneider National will hire 100 drivers for local, regional and long haul positions. Newly-hired drivers will work for Schneider National's One-Way, Specialized and Dedicated divisions, which offer employment options that are designed to meet individual lifestyles and varying time-at-home needs. Newly-hired, experienced drivers for the Dedicated division will receive a $2,000 sign-on bonus, while inexperienced drivers for the division will receive a $1,000 sign-on bonus.

"The driver associates of Schneider National are at the heart of our success, and we place great emphasis on providing employment options that best fit their financial needs, time at home and overall work life," said Rob Reich, vice president of enterprise recruiting at Schneider National. "In today's highly competitive driver recruitment market, we know there's no cookie cutter position that fits every driver. Being able to give drivers options--like those we have in the Gordonsville area--has made a difference in our recruitment and retention efforts."

Differing from most truckload carriers, Schneider offers a broad range of employment options for drivers. Opportunities for Schneider drivers include daily, weekly and bi-weekly runs in the following divisions:

-- One-Way Van is the company's over-the-road, full truckload service. Drivers for this division will deliver to clients across the United States.

-- Drivers for Schneider's Specialized division will haul industrial flat glass and other open equipment for dedicated clients.

-- Dedicated drivers service mainly one client and enjoy predictable work schedules, consistent time at home and regular routes of travel.

Schneider National offers a comprehensive, company-paid training program that is recognized as one of the best in the industry for its commitment to safety and service excellence. Inexperienced drivers are encouraged to apply for the new positions and will earn an average of $34,500-$42,500 in their first year. Experienced drivers will earn an average of $48,500-$57,500 per year. Owner-operators leasing with Schneider National will average $105,000-$115,000 annually.

Schneider National, the nation's largest truckload provider, is committed to the development of innovative programs to attract and retain professional truck drivers. In February, the company announced the largest compensation and work-life improvement package in its 70-year history. The company is also testing an innovative computer system that will allow drivers to design their own work schedules, improving the predictability and frequency of time at home.

Company drivers and owner-operators also have access to 32 Schneider Operating Centers, which offer drivers an array of benefits including showers, Internet access, exercise facilities and other services.

(AGC) of Japan has solved problems in lowering the defect-free rate for the production of fifth- and sixth-generation (5G, 6G) glass substrates, and is expected to tap the market with products with higher price competitiveness in 2006 to grab more market share in the 6G substrate businessIn addition, Wang added, the aggressive capacity added by both Corning of the U.S., the world's No. 1 substrate supplier, and AGC, the No. 2, will lead to price drops for glass substrates and will especially benefit TV panel makers such as AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) and Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp. (CMO) in TaiwanCurrently, Wang pointed out, a 6G substrate is priced at about 27,000 to 30,000 Japanese yen, about 1,000 to 2,000 yen lower than in the third quarter of 2005.
