Women in Trucking Names Cardinal Logistics one of 2021’s “Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation”

Concord, NC – October 25, 2021 – Women in Trucking (WIT) has selected Cardinal Logistics as one of its “Top Companies for Women to Work For in Transportation” in 2021. Done in combination with Redefining the Road magazine, this annual award program launched in 2018 supports an element of WIT’s mission: to promote the accomplishments of companies that are focused on the employment of women in the trucking industry.

To be considered, companies are nominated and assessed against criteria that include a corporate culture that fosters gender diversity, competitive compensation and benefits, flexible hours and work requirements, professional development opportunities, and career advancement opportunities. After an initial screening by WIT, nominations are validated by an industry-wide vote involving nearly 15,000 professionals in transportation – including executive management, operations and HR/talent management executives, and professional drivers. 

“We not only value diversity and inclusion, but we also know we are stronger because of it. While we are proud that the percentage of women that make up our driver force is greater than the national average, we are committed to bringing on more females and minorities into the Cardinal family”, said Holly Hardie, VP of Human Resources. “It is a great honor for Cardinal Logistics to be recognized as a leader in professional and career development opportunities for women in our industry.” Nicole Miller, Manager of Driver Recruiting added, “We are committed to fostering a flexible work environment to help balance work and home lives. Important family time is honored with our ‘home daily’ positions that apply to everyone but that greatly appeal to our women drivers. Our membership in WIT helps us stay at the forefront of hiring best practices and designing meaningful programs to support women in transportation roles at Cardinal.”

“As women rise through the ranks in the transportation industry, we are excited to feature the companies that make the extra effort to attract and retain a more gender-diverse workforce,” said Ellen Voie, President and CEO of WIT. “We applaud their efforts, and this distinction is our way of giving them the recognition they deserve.” 

Several Cardinal representatives will attend the upcoming Accelerate Conference on November 7 through 9 to accept this honor.

Cardinal Continues to Raise the Bar for Customer Experience in 3PL with Logistics Management Quest for Quality Award

Cardinal Continues to Raise the Bar for Customer Experience in 3PL with Logistics Management Quest for Quality Award

Concord, NC – September 2, 2021 – For more than three decades, the “Quest for Quality” Award has been regarded in the transportation and logistics industry as a key measure of customer satisfaction and performance excellence by Logistics Management. This year, Cardinal Logistics ranked second overall for excellence in the Third-Party Logistics category – Value-Add Warehousing & Distribution Solutions.

Cardinal Chairman of the Board, Vin McLoughlin commented, “This award reflects our commitment and dedication to excellence even in the face of a global pandemic. We aim to add value across our customers’ businesses by being a trusted partner dedicated to their success.”

Logistics Management’s (LM) Annual Quest for Quality Awards are the culmination of a six-month research project conducted by Peerless Research Group (PRG). The best of the best among qualified LM readers rate carriers, third-party logistics (3PL) service providers, and now US port operators, are rated strictly on the basis of service quality, making it the only survey of its kind in the market.

“It was impossible to avoid service disruptions over the past year—no matter the mode of transport,” said Michael Levans, group editorial director of Peerless Media, the publisher of LM. “However, this year’s Quest for Quality results show that the logistics sector proved to be extraordinarily effective in spite of these challenges. And shippers and their carrier partners are now using what they learned to lay the groundwork for more resilient, nimble supply chains.”

About the Quest for Quality Awards

To determine the “best of the best,” LM readers—logistics, transportation and supply chain decision makers—rate carriers, third-party logistics (3PL) service providers and U.S. port operators strictly on the basis of service quality. One of the most notable elements about the Quest for Quality Awards is that it calls these shippers to vote in the genre of services in which they are customers; therefore, they vote for the providers that they believe have best delivered on quality service in specific niches.

This year, LM had 4,187 ballots cast from logistics and supply chain decision makers resulting in 142 transportation and logistics services providers that earned Quest for Quality gold.
