Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation (Cardinal), one of the nation’s fastest-growing 3PL, warehousing and dedicated delivery providers, recently named Walter Hasty of Leesburg, Georgia, the Cardinal 2005 Driver of the Year. Each year, Cardinal selects one outstanding driver from their operations nationwide for this coveted award.

Hasty drove 114,327 accident-free safe miles in 2005 and delivered 388 loads to customers, all of them on time. Hasty has been with Cardinal since July 1999 and has demonstrated an impeccable record in safety, service and customer satisfaction, all qualities that Cardinal stands behind when serving clients many of which include the nation’s leading manufacturers and retailers, say his supervisors.

‘Drivers like Walter Hasty make our pursuit of customer service excellence at Cardinal an achievable goal and it is our honor to recognize him as our 2005 Driver of the Year,’ said Fred Schmidt, Cardinal Operation Manager for the Georgia Pacific account, located in Albany, Georgia.

Cardinal established a Driver of the Month program many years ago to reward drivers monthly for their outstanding performance on the job. Any company driver who deserves to be recognized for outstanding job performance above and beyond the call of duty may be honored and can be nominated by another Cardinal associate. Driver of the Year is selected from among all ‘Driver of the Month’ winners and considered a great honor and outstanding achievement.
