INFORMS Prize: Winner(s)

The INFORMS Prize is awarded to the Engineering and Research Department at Schneider National for its demonstrated history of using OR/MS to provide benefits at strategic, tactical, and operational levels. The OR/MS function has been an important, contributing part of Schneider’s business for over 25 years, including applications in shipment and driver planning, revenue management, dedicated fleet management and operational decision support. These OR/MS applications have improved annual earnings by over $10 million at Schneider. This represents an outstanding example of OR/MS as an integrated part of a business’ decision-making capability.

The award was presented by Glenn Wegryn, Committee Chair and Mark Daskin, 2006 INFORMS President in November, 2006.
