ABOUT us

HISTORY: 1974 - PRESENT

In 1974, when Jerry and Rich Schugel started J&R Schugel Trucking with their father
Harold, they had 15 trucks, 20 trailers and an idea. That idea was to provide their
customers with quality service at a good price. The company experienced great
success and growth throughout their control, boasting to 350 power units and
550 refrigerated trailers in 1998. In 2005, Jerry and Rich passed the family legacy
on to their respective sons Rick and Brad, who maintained the same business practice
concepts while growing the fleet to over 600 tractors and 1,000 trailers. In 2014,
J&R Schugel celebrated 40 years as a leader in the transportation industry. This was
also the year that J&R became 100% employee-owned! J&R has seen plenty of changeover the
years but our dedication to drivers and employees remains the same.

We’d like to get to know you too!

EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP

Being employee-owned means that what you do everyday truly makes a difference. You’re not only an employee, you’re a stakeholder in the success we achieve together.

An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a way to reward employees and encourage you to continue your
exemplary performance and work ethic for the continued growth of the Company.
Having ownership in the Company,
through the ESOP, should provide additional incentive to an excellent workforce.

Our ESOP is 100% company funded
plan and intended to compliment your employee-funded 401(k) plan. We save for your future!

You will become a participant as of January 1 or July 1 after completing 12 consecutive months of service from your hire date and worked at least 1,000 hours and surpassed 18 years of age.

Vesting refers to the percentage of your ESOP account that is yours and cannot be forfeited. Our ESOP vesting schedule is as follows:

 YEARS OF SERVICE    |    VESTED INTEREST
2. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 20%
3. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 40%
4. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 60%
5. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 80%
6. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 100%

Annually employees earn 3 points for each consecutive year of service plus 1 point for each $1,000 in W2 gross wage. Total points will convert into shares after the company valuation. Dividends, if declared, are distributed by the quantity of shares owned.

To qualify as a President’s Club member, you must have no preventable accidents while accumulating the miles and have been employed with J&R Schugel for the entire period.
