North Carolina-Based Cardinal Freight Carriers Announces Official Company Name Change to Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation

Nation's Fastest Growing Third-Party Logistics Firm Changes Legal Name to

Better Differentiate Company in Transportation and Logistics Marketplace

Apr 15, 2005, 01:00 ET from Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation

    CONCORD, N.C., April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- In a move designed to better
 differentiate its company name and solidify their brand in the logistics
 market, the Board of Cardinal Freight Carriers, Inc. a North Carolina
 Corporation, on Thursday, April 7, 2005 filed paperwork with the North
 Carolina Office of the Secretary of State to formally change the name of the
 company from Cardinal Freight Carriers to Cardinal Logistics Management
 Corporation or (CLMC).
     According to Vin McLoughlin, Cardinal's Chairman of the Board, the
 decision was based on streamlining efficiencies for the third-party logistics
 firm, which has evolved from a small truckload company to one of the logistics
 industry's most trusted and respected integrated logistics and transportation
 companies in the business. As Cardinal has evolved through the years so has
 their core business focus, officials say.
     "Cardinal is an unquestioned leader in the dedicated delivery and
 transportation business and we plan to continue delivering a high return on
 investment for our customers," explained McLoughlin.  "Several years ago we
 exited the truck load carrier business completely and now felt it was a
 necessary and important step to officially change our company name to more
 accurately reflect our current line of operations."
     From its start in 1997 with the purchase of North Carolina-based truckload
 common carrier Cardinal Freight Carriers, Cardinal Logistics Management
 Corporation has continued to experience explosive demand for its dedicated and
 delivery product lines.  Dedicated and delivery services soon set the company
 apart from other third-party logistics firms as Cardinal streamlined their
 operations to a natural evolution in jobsite and "last-mile" delivery that
 built on Cardinal's expertise, innovation and intent focus on customer
 satisfaction.  In January 2001, Cardinal executives recognized the success of
 their core service in dedicated delivery and logistics management and chose to
 focus on those while eliminating its truckload line.
     Last year, Cardinal Logistics Management Corporation launched their newest
 product line - a Warehousing & Inventory Management program for a number of
 their key customers.  Cardinal CEO, Tom Hostetler points out that the
 company's core competency remains centered on the management of dedicated
 resources.  Total warehousing and distribution center square footage now tops
 more than 800,000 square feet of space with more than 15 locations across the
 country, Hostetler reports.
     With new product introductions and addition of new business from a number
 of high-profile customers, including KraftMaid Cabinetry and Mill's Pride,
 Cardinal added annual revenue totaling in excess of $125 million during 2004,
 according to Jerry Bowman, Cardinal's President and COO.  Headquartered in
 Concord, N.C., Cardinal's employee base now totals more than 2,300 employees
 nationwide including contract and employee drivers.
