Schneider is featured as the cover story of the current issue of Profit Magazine in an article titled "Vehicle for Change: Data Drives Schneider's Strategy for Employee and Operational Excellence." The article discusses Quest, a five year transformational initiative, which truly changed every aspect of their business.
