Schneider Logistics is offering a new less-than-truckload (LTL) service for shippers with reoccurring loads. Integrated Delivery Services (IDS) is designed to take advantage of Schneider's supply chain management and cross-docking capabilities.

“Schneider saw an opportunity to provide a smarter solution for shippers moving LTL freight in the same geographic markets,” said Todd Jadin, vice president of IDS for Schneider Logistics. “Integrated Delivery Services is especially attractive to shippers in the automotive aftermarket, heavy truck and equipment manufacturers, and specialty retailers. Companies within each of these industries run common routes and have similar distribution locations and dispatch schedules.”

According to Schneider, utilizing this service can create a cost savings of 7 to 20% for a shipper based on network location. IDS is now operating in eight networks: Portland, OR; Sacramento, CA; Los Angeles, CA; Denver, CO; Houston, TX; Lenexa, KS; Jackson, MS; Winchester, VA; and Memphis, TN.
