Innovation Despite Disruption
It’s no secret that this year, businesses worldwide faced unprecedented difficulties and slow-downs as a result of the pandemic. Schneider National demonstrated exceptional effort to help keep the supply chain moving. By leveraging their partnership with Barcoding, the IT and operational teams at Schneider National adapted quickly and efficiently to changing demand.
“In this highly disruptive year, Schneider National has risen to the challenge and delivered for communities around the country throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic,” said Steinmetz.
The teams at Schneider implemented Zebra Technologies mobile devices to run multiple applications over 15 hubs. The Barcoding GoLive Services team helped Schneider beta test the hardware, as well as pair it with Ivanti Wavelink software.
“We are honored to win the 2020 Barcoding Innovator of the Year award,” said Pat Krah, Schneider’s vice president of technology infrastructure. “This year has pushed and stretched our industry in significant ways and we’re proud of how our teams have risen to the challenge and developed creative solutions.
