At Cardinal Logistics, our 100% dedicated regional runs allow our drivers to earn the income they deserve without compromising on home time. It’s also a good opportunity for drivers to have consistency with their schedule and get to know customers because they’re working with them on a regular basis. Our partnership with Masterbrand Cabinets is a great example of how our dedicated fleet services work to provide streamlined service for brands and reliability for our drivers.
“What these guys do is they’ll hook up to a load, strap in their load of cabinets and then start their route,” says Thomas Caleodis at Cardinal. “Once they get to the delivery points, they are required to tailgate the cabinets. The guys that we do have doing the job really like it because they’re just not sitting around.”
Driver John Lazdins agrees. He says he typically starts his days around 7 a.m. He’ll dock at a customer and move deliveries to the end of the trailer, making easy for customers to take their products from there.
“The pay package, not only do you get the piece count pay, stop pay and mileage pay, but you’re also getting safety bonuses weekly,” says John, who has worked with Cardinal for over five years.
A consistent schedule also means regular home time. Cardinal drivers get home weekly. Drivers for the Masterbrand account are home at least two nights a week, but you can get home even more often if you live close to the manufacturing facility in Arthur, Ill., where drivers pick up loads.
“Home time is quite a bit unless you don’t want it to be,” adds John. “I get my home time on the weekends, but there’s potential for resets and days off during the week, too.”
We pride ourselves on putting our drivers first.
“At Cardinal, you’re not just a number,” says Thomas. “We’re available to you 24/7 if you have any issues.”
John agrees. “I like working here. Everyone’s very organized. From my manager to people who work here at the actual plant, it’s a great environment.”
