Schneider (SNDR) Segmental Strength Aids Growth, Costs Ail

Schneider National, Inc.’s SNDR top line is benefiting from strength across its Truckload, Intermodal and Logistics segments, which recorded a year-over-year revenue increase of 20%, 22% and 21%, respectively, in second-quarter 2022.

The surge in Truckload revenues was primarily owing to Midwest Logistics Systems revenues, effective yield management and dedicated new business growth. The Intermodal segment is benefiting from favorable revenue management actions, while the Logistics unit is thriving on the back of increased revenue per order and higher volumes within the company’s brokerage offering, including increased contribution from the Power Only service offering and incremental port dray revenues.

Further, Schneider National anticipates an excess demand condition with a gradual supply-chain improvement. Due to the bullish demand scenario, management raised the 2022 earnings per share (EPS) forecast. Schneider now anticipates 2022 adjusted EPS in the range of $2.60-$2.70 (previous view: $2.55-$2.70).

On the flip side, rising operating expenses, mainly due to high purchased transportation costs and salaries, wages and benefits, can hurt the bottom line. Total operating expenses increased 27.1% year over year in second-quarter 2022, with a 19.9% surge in purchased transportation costs and a 23.6% rise in salaries, wages and benefits expenses.
