We are helping to put Green Bay on the map as an innovation hub for transportation and logistics.”
The 20,000 square-foot facility is located on the campus of Schneider’s headquarters in Green Bay, Wisconsin, and houses cutting edge technologies that will enable teams to further drive transformational innovation across the supply chain and logistics ecosystem.
“The Grove will play a crucial role in building the future,” said Schneider Executive Vice President and Chief Innovation and Technology Officer Shaleen Devgun. “Our goal in opening The Grove is to provide access to state-of-the-art tools and spaces that spark creativity, fulfill our promise to always deliver and always be ahead, and lead to decades of innovative ideas and solutions across the industries we serve.”

The Grove also reflects best-in-class environmentally responsible building practices and has a minimal impact on the surrounding environment. In addition to being constructed from sustainable building materials, it features a geothermal heating and cooling system, solar technology, LED lighting, efficient plumbing fixtures, and glass windows that help regulate temperature.
