| 1/14/2004

Schneider National Inc., one of North America's largest trucking companies, is rolling into Georgia with 400 new jobs, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported.

"It's a rapidly growing regional market, and one of those markets we think we have to be in to be an effective truckload carrier," said Wayne Lubner, vice president of driver relations for the company, which had about $3 billion in revenue last year.

The privately held company, based in Green Bay, WI, plans to open an operations center next month on 25 acres off Constitution Avenue in DeKalb County.

The company has scheduled a job fair at the Decatur Career Center at 3798 Covington Highway from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Schneider said salaries would range from $30,000 to $50,000 per year. Drivers will be placed on routes spanning metro Atlanta, Georgia and the Southeast, the company said.
