Penske Logistics announced it has begun a transition to manage the dedicated fleet for Cardinal Health’s medical supply chain business.
As a part of the agreement, Cardinal Health will outsource the management of its dedicated truck fleet to Penske Logistics. This involves transitioning approximately 700 of Cardinal Health’s truck drivers and related transportation support staff across North America to become direct employees of Penske Logistics.
Penske said it intends to hire all the employees and is collaborating with Cardinal Health to ensure the transition for the employees is as smooth as possible.
“We are very pleased to be working with Cardinal Health and we welcome these new associates to our organization as highly valued members of the Penske team,” said Vincent Hartnett, President – Penske Logistics. “We are working to ensure the transition is seamless for Cardinal Health’s customers, as these drivers will continue to serve their normal routes with the same dedication to service.”
