In addition to operating our own fleet, Cardinal Health has established relationships with national, regional and local transportation providers. As a purchaser and provider of transportation solutions, Cardinal Health is uniquely qualified to offer access to best-in-class rates for truckload, parcel and LTL (less than truckload) freight.
Our quotes are a highly competitive alternative to traditional shipping companies. In addition to delivering transportation savings, we provide shipment track and traceability that keeps you informed of where the freight is as it flows through the supply chain.
Leverage our dedicated fleet to deliver freight to destinations within the local operating geography. Utilizing the Cardinal Health distribution network for backhauls allows suppliers to be more efficient, so you can reduce your transportation spend and simplify your supply chain.
Reduce your transportation expenses by utilizing our cross dock program for shipments going to Cardinal Health distribution centers, as well as alternate destinations.
Our cross dock program delivers savings by consolidating LTLs (less than truckloads) into truckload quantities. Suppliers also realize a reduction in freight claims expense and improved transit time to destinations.
