Wis July 30, 2013

Wis July 30, 2013; Schneider National, Inc., announced today it is significantly reducing the purchase price on more than 450 tractors available to owner-operators, small to medium fleets, farmers, oil field operators and dealers/exporters. During the companya€?s Summer Clearance Sale, these dependable trucks are available at prices up to 40 percent lower than Schneidera€?s regularly listed prices.

Schneider’s Used Fleet Truck Sales offers trucks just coming off the road. The trucks currently for sale are 2005-2007 model-year Freightliner C120s with Detroit Diesel engines. Mileage ranges between 400,000-1 million; prices range from $14,000-$27,000. All trucks for sale have been serviced and maintained to Schneider’s high standards for preventive maintenance and have a history of excellent fuel mileage. Units have 10-speed and automatic transmissions. Options include 70-inch raised roof, 58-inch mid-roof, 70 XT and day cabs.
We know the news of this reduced pricing will excite many people who are in the market for well-maintained, carefully spec’d, comfortable tractors,” said Rob Reich, vice president of maintenance at Schneider National. “These trucks are solid values at their normal pricing levels, so the sale we are running this summer provides an even better opportunity to buy.”

In addition to its Schneider Finance division, which provides options to current and prospective Schneider National owner-operators on premium new and gently used trucks, Schneider began offering used fleet trucks to selected buyers last year. Owner-operators and fleets that purchase used fleet trucks are not required to lease the units with Schneider National.

The current inventory is available at 17 Schneider locations across the U.S. and Canada: Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C.; Columbus, Ohio; Dallas; Fontana, Calif.; Sacramento, Calif.; Gary, Ind.; Harrisburg, Penn.; Houston; Indianapolis; Laredo, Texas; New Orleans; Portland, Ore.; Salt Lake City; St. Louis; Toronto and West Memphis, Ark.

Staffer who helped probe collapse of MF Global joins law firm

A staffer who managed the House Financial Serices investigation into the collapse of MF Global has set up shop in the private sector.

Anne Marie Turner, an adviser to the watchdog committee in Congress, has been hired by McDermott Will & Emery to work as a partner in its government strategies practice in Washington.

Turner is excited to combine her skills as an investigator and policy expert into one role, she said.

“I can do advocacy for clients, but I can also work on litigation,” she told The Hill. “That sets us apart from other lobbying shops because we can service our clients in two ways. That’s not always an option at other places in DC.”

“I thought I was going to have to pick which way my career went,” she added, referring to the law and lobbying world, “and now I don’t have to.”

Steve Ryan, partner and head of McDermott’s government strategies practice group, called Turner a “seasoned” congressional investigation counsel in a statement on Monday.

“We will be even stronger with Anne Marie’s deep congressional investigations background,” Ryan said.Prior to her hire, Turner worked as a senior counsel for the House Financial Services Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations. In that role, she managed the committee’s report on the failure of MF Global, a hedge fund that had been managed by former New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine (D).

Turner worked on Capitol Hill for about a decade, beginning as counsel for former Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.) while he served as chairman of the House Oversight Committee and later becoming lead committee staff on the investigation into steroid use in professional sports.

After that, she worked in the office of former Senate Minority Whip Trent Lott (R-Miss.), working on telecom, transportation and consumer protection policy.

“For the majority of my government career, I’ve handled investigations,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to helping clients on the other side of investigations,” whether it be an investigated entity or a witness called to testify before Congress.

Getting a phone call or letter from a committee can be “equally as stressful” as being the subject of an investigation, she says. She plans to “[guide] them through the process and [help] them navigate the waters.”
