The average pay at Cardinal Logistics is $45,000-$60,000 per year.
Cardinal Logistics offers its employees the following benefits:
All equipment is leased and difficult to get repairs without going through a bunch of red tape. They also will terminate you away from home and provide NO MONETARY REIMBURSEMENT AFTER PROMISING IT.
It's a great company to work for this has got to be the best home time I have ever had the people in the office are helpful and try to do what they can to make it easy for there driver's
I work out of the Paris IL account. I have nothing but praise for the company and they have done right by me
Overall one of the best jobs I've had for freedom and ability to make money. Leased equipment is a little to plain Jane.
Management at my account seems to have their priorities and the drivers are not one of them. They will only fix the trucks when its something that will put them out of service. Equipment is currently being traded in for newer equipment though so that's nice. They treat you good as long as you do what they say but if you disagree with them they will threaten to fire you. Hometime for me is about three days a week so it's decent but it's usually my 10 and back in the truck. I do get a 34 reset on weekends.
Q: Does anyone have any information on Cardinal logistics/Greatwide out of Southaven MS?
Q: Did you find anything out? My brother lives in Southaven and is with Schnieder. They spoiled him with an automatic and he is wondering if Cardinal has them?
A: Yes they have all new tractors all automatic, they still have a couple of sticks 10 speeds that he might have to drive from time to timeDelete Edit Full Discussion
has the links. There's also a video to watch on this website.
Cardinal also purchased Greatwide.com and merged it into their company. Now they have reefers/dry van/containers/step deck/heavy haul/flatbed.
Greatwide Truckload Management includes the following Carriers:
American Trans Freight
National Transportation Specialists
Logistics - good reputation and several drivers I used to work with went with
Cardinal and are successful.
Cardinal is a 100% Dedicated fleet with regional and local runs. We are seeking Company Drivers, Owner Operators and Settlement Carriers across our nationwide network of operation centers.
makes it easier than most other company to become an owner operator, with
access to services provided by third-party industry leaders.
I drove for Cardinal/Greatwide as a company driver and it was a very good experience. The reason I left is for a tanker company. Cardinal/Greatwide didn't have any tanker divisions, but do have reefers, van, flatbed.Delete Edit Full Discussion
Q: Hi, does anyone have info on their "Regional" positions? Recruiter told me home 2 to 3 times during week and home weekends. Does that sound right? Thanks
That's the way it worked when I worked there on a grocery account. Some were
home every day, some ran regional and did a couple of layovers each week. I was
gone all week or longer because was on the backhaul part of it.
A couple of accounts around the Atlanta area, they haul a load out, then bring a backhaul on return or return deadhead.
I spent 5+ years with Cardinal on numerous accounts as accompany driver and O/O and will say as a company they were fine to work for, and depending on the account you are on you tend to work independently, meaning you hardly see any other drivers let alone your manager. Cardinals dispatch is decentralized and broken into cost centers run by a manager and that is the person who causes you to love or hate your time at Cardinal. They are a tough company to get cleared to hire by but once you are hired they do everything they can to keep you. Unfortunately, I had to leave them earlier this year for family reasons but have recently been in contact with them about returning and working on the Greatwide O/O side of the company.Delete Edit Full Discussion
I think it will depend what account you are on. A close friend was an O/O for Cardinal pulling a flatbed with Moffitt for home depot deliveries and was very happy with them. Only reason he left was he moved out of state and they did not have openings where he moved to.Delete Edit Full Discussion
