Union Pacific Railroad will be the primary intermodal rail transportation provider in the western United States for Schneider effective January 2023, the Class I announced today.

The partnership creates seamless service and reliability between the railroad and Schneider, which provides the critical "first and last miles" of the supply chain, UP officials said in a press release.

"Schneider's Intermodal business is a great fit for Union Pacific's diverse network," said Union Pacific Chairman, President and CEO Lance Fritz. "We look forward to growing in the intermodal space together."

A transportation and logistics provider, Schneider’s intermodal network services more than 45 ramps in North America with over 25,000 intermodal containers.

"When we pair Union Pacific's transcontinental rail solutions with our company-owned assets and professional drivers, we will be an unstoppable force in the intermodal marketplace," said Schneider Senior Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer Jim Filter.
