About Schneider’s All-In Revenue Van Choice Lease program

  • Schneider’s Van Choice Portal

    Pick the freight you want to haul

    Skip the dispatchers and brokers and enjoy easy access to Schneider’s private Van Choice Portal, where 90% of freight is drop-and-hook. It’s as simple as logging onto the freight board with your smartphone, tablet or other device and picking the load(s) you want to haul. The freight you choose, the schedule you run, how often you get home – it’s all completely up to you.

    Schneider’s All-In Revenue Choice Lease program provides a huge variety of loads to owner-operators and fleet owners. In addition to the previous freight that was on the portal, more unique options are now also available to choose, such as:

    • Dedicated loads.
    • Spot freight.
    • Surge freight. 
  • All-In Revenue

    All-in revenue means more choices for you

    With Schneider’s All-In Revenue Choice Lease program, the freight you view and select has an all-in or flat rate, which means there’s no calculating fuel surcharge or accessorials. It’s a lot like broker boards, but without the headache of working with multiple brokers or the cost of operating under your own authority.

    • Van owner-operators are averaging over 15% more in revenue each week compared to when they did business with Schneider under the previous lease model.
    • Many Van owner-operators are averaging $250,000 in annual revenue, while the highest earning owner-operators are exceeding $7,500 every week.
  • Team or solo

    Do business by yourself or with a teammate

    Whether you want to run your business as a solo or on a team, the decision is yours. Team owner-operators who lease-on with Schneider often have a significantly greater revenue potential; top team owner-operators bring in more than $250,000 annually.

    Save on truck and business expenses
