Damn, wonder if the livery will disappear soon. It's only natural Schneider gets into this niche after JB Hunt.

Schneider seems to be trying to diversify a bit more lately, perhaps they will fold the existing furniture accounts into their dedicated division.

This one had me briefly curious, then I realized I was forgetting about Schneider buying W/S.  This is the first mixed combo I've seen, taken 4/14 in New Stanton PA

Great catch! I've still been seeing them pulling their own trailers, and with no visible SNI markings, but I imagine they will eventually rebrand.

I'm Actually surprised USX Didnt buy them instead  ??? They could have saved money just on Rebranding of the Trucks and Trailers alone :P ;D
