ONLINE DRIVER EDUCATION INFORMATION & PRECAUTIONS

J&R Schugel is now offering Web2Road e-learning platform for your on-boarding needs. Drivers have the ability to complete orientation or certification class from the comfort of their own homes. This is just one more effort J&R Schugel has implemented in hopes to reduce the spread of Coronavirus.

It will still be necessary for drivers to come to a terminal location for road tests as well as physicals and drug screens, if they have not been completed beforehand. With this in mind, we wanted to remind you of the following protective procedures we have implemented at our facilities:

  • Installation of sanitizer stations
  • Increased disinfection of all facilities
  • Screening visitors and new hires for Coronavirus symptoms
  • Wearing rubber gloves when working on trucks
  • Wearing masks when entering trucks
  • Signage promoting good hygiene and social distancing
  • Monitoring of potential COVID-19 cases
  • Requiring self-quarantine as needed
  • Contaminated trucks will be placed out of service until disinfection is completed
  • Using fog machines with disinfectant chemicals for trucks, orientation rooms, break rooms and bathrooms

If attending class in Columbus, OH; New Ulm, MN; or Ellenwood, GA please wear a face covering before entering any indoor public spaces including but not limited to; our facilities, motel and restaurants. Face covering means a piece of cloth, fabric, or other material that fully covers the mouth and nose that is secured with ear straps or otherwise ties so as to prevent slipping. Face coverings may be factory-made or may be handmade and improvised from household materials. Not limited to bandanas, scarves, medical masks, N95 masks or cloth masks.

Be assured we are still running strong at J&R Schugel. We primarily haul general commodities and household goods which are in high demand during this unprecedented time. Now more than ever, we need drivers like you to keep up with freight demands and deliver essential goods to the consumers.

Get the first peek at our newest trucks

Posted: April 23, 2021

At J&R Schugel, we’re focused on you - the driver. We take pride in knowing what our drivers need from their carrier. After all, we’re in the unique position of being a 100% employee-owned company. Your comfort and safety is our priority, which is why we’re so excited to tell you all about our newest trucks!

 

These new 2022 Kenworth T680 trucks have a sleek and innovative aerodynamic design that saves drivers up to six percent of fuel costs. From the cutting-edge exterior designed to reduce wind drag and turbulence to the driver-optimized technology, these trucks offer the safest and most intuitive experience yet.

 

Each T680 features a Cummins X15 engine and either an Eaton 12sp Endurant automatic transmission or an Eaton 10sp (manual transmission.  On the outside, the narrower hood and grill design, integrated front air dams, tandem axle fairings and wind-slick wheel covers are just a few of the technologies included with aerodynamics in mind. Inside the truck, you’ll find fuel-saving features that prioritize safety including a fully optimized PACCAR powertrain, predictive cruise control, collision mitigation, and driver shift aids.

 

You’ll also love the ThermoKing Evolution APU to keep your A/C or heat, lights and small appliances running whenever you need them. The cab is pre-wired for a power inverter to run all your small electrical devices and the roomy 72” sleeper berths with upper bunks give you plenty of room for resting in comfort and tons of storage. Other features of our new T680 trucks include a TV mount, satellite radio capabilities (subscription required for use) and Bluetooth readiness.
