I was leasing my truck through their "in house" account with penske truck leasing, which they charged me for an extra week of rental after my termination(630 dollars). Then they back charged me over 600 dollars for fictitious damage to a previous rental truck. I got less than half of my 3000 dollar escrow back, and when I called them to inquire about the charges, I was told by "melanie" that she didn't need to hear my S%IT. I got hung up on.
I was forced to incorporate my business to contract here. I was forced to take whatever loads they offered me. I was forced to end my weeks early when "the other guys didn't get enough miles". I was forced to accept a one page settlment sheet with no way of knowing what Cardinal was charging KRAFTMAID CABINETRY for freight or fuel surcharge. I suspect they are skimming some of the fuel surcharge for themselves.
I was forced to jump through whatever hoops that Cardinal of Middlefield, Ohio would concoct.if you didnt jump, your contract would be cancelled. Other guys' contracts were terminated for parking in a shopping mall, or refusing to go over their hours of service rule, after a big snow that delayed us by 10 or more hours. Towards the end they were all slow months, never over 2200 miles a week.
After being in trucking for 21 years, I can tell you for sure: don't sign on with Cardinal logistics, especially the middlefield, Ohio / Kraftmaid Cabinetry branch. I was put out on the street for an alleged violation that I beat, and it cost me thousands in lost revenue, and i had to suspend my business and go work somewhere else.
Incidentally, after I was terminated, another contractor rolled a trailer over for Cardinal/Kraftmaid. Because there was no police citation, he was re-instated after a brief investigation by Cardinal. I get canned for an alleged violation, this other contractor gets to stay. When asked why, Cardinal middlefield will tell you, and I quote Joe Richardson, and Sara Ramey, :"" well, there was more to that particular contractor getting terminated than we can discuss with you""
If you think I'm kidding, than go ahead and sign on with them. Ask about "porkchop" and they'll say "well there was more to that particular contractor...." was there?
Was there? Lease on here and find out for yourself.
