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.

COVID-19 DISCLAIMER

By attending J&R Schugel’s orientation classes or entering our facilities, you acknowledge that your involvement and/or presence is voluntary, and you are acting under your own free will. J&R Schugel undertakes no direct legal or financial responsibility for your personal health or wellbeing while you are on our property including the risk of contracting any potential illnesses.

J&R Schugel shows support during Mental Health Awareness Month

Posted: May 24, 2021

 

To support Mental Health Awareness Month in May, J&R Schugel Trucking wraps a Kenworth T680 semi-truck to support the cause and promote awareness.

 

“We are living in unprecedented times and many are facing challenges that can be stressful, overwhelming and emotionally draining” says, Dan Denhof President/CEO. J&R Schugel chose to wrap a truck surrounding a topic that has had an impact on so many individuals and their families.

 

“This is our third truck wrap and it was inspired by the unique times we have all experienced over the last year and most importantly brought the topic of mental health awareness to all of us at Schugel. At J&R Schugel Trucking, our employees want to encourage those who are dealing with mental health issues and help reduce the stigma that may be associated with seeking help,” Denhof adds.

 

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, research shows that mental illnesses are common in the United States, affecting tens of millions of people each year and these numbers have only grown due to the COVID19 pandemic.

 

J&R Schugel plans to assign the unit to one of their professional truck drivers in the near future. If you or someone you know is in crisis, there are national hotlines available: The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255, Crisis Text Line can be reached by texting NAMI to 741-741 or The National Domestic Violence Hotline can be reached at 800-799-7233. Remember, you are not alone.
