Message from the Group CEO, Brand Managing Director and Brand CEO.

Group CEO – Brian Hay

As a founder member of the Cardinal Maritime Group of Companies, I am acutely aware of the need to adapt to the ever changing landscape of global logistics and International Trade.

Cardinal Maritime is one of the fastest growing logistics providers in the U.K.  The entrepreneurial  spirit within the Management Team, combined with the innovative use of technology have been key components of our ongoing success.

Our strategy is to challenge conventional thinking and to establish ourselves as trusted partners in the supply chain logistics sector.  Our team of highly motivated and experience professionals has enabled us to deliver a sustained annual growth rate of 25%.

Important to the DNA and philosophy within the business is its Culture and Values.  We passionately believe in our values and the serious nature of our business.  However, we also think that business can and should be enjoyable.

Cardinal Maritime is wholly owned by the Management Team.  Since the business was founded, there has been a natural evolution within the business to reward those individuals who have committed their careers to the business.  This belief continues to attract some of the highest calibre members of staff in the industry and rewards the excellence delivered within the business.

I invite you to learn more about Cardinal Maritime Group of Companies.  It is an exciting business.  We will continue to challenge convention with innovation and build on the exceptional value we provide for our clients.

With Kind Regards,
Brian Hay
Group CEO

Brand Managing Director - Rick White

We look forward to a very exciting year here at Cardinal Maritime. Like last year, I feel that this year will again represent a challenge for the industry and business generally.  I think it is fairly clear to all of us that difficult decisions need to be taken to get the economy and country back on track.  No doubt these decisions will touch each of us in some way.

In keeping with our true entrepreneurial spirit, we will continue to innovate with the aim to deliver genuine value for money and maintain our status as the UK’s leading consolidator.

We will continue to raise standards and push boundaries; a philosophy which has allowed Cardinal Maritime to attract, retain and develop some of the very highest calibre individuals within our sector.

In accordance with the Cardinal Maritime Charter we will be adding new services to our already comprehensive range. We also have some very thrilling developments scheduled for this year, which I’m sure will be welcomed with open arms. Look out for more information in the coming months.

Customer feedback is essential for us to develop the way in which we communicate with you and throughout the year customer service will be a focal point as we strive to improve your experience.

I wish each and every one of you a fruitful and successful year.

Warm Regards,
Rick White
Brand Managing Director

Message from our Brand CEO – Andrew Smithurst

Dear valued customers and partners,

On behalf of the The Captain and all of my colleagues at Cardinal Maritime, may I thank you for your continued support.

The development of our FREIGHTcalculator software – an online pricing product – and the open access of our tracking facility have allowed Cardinal Maritime to maintain the rapid development of our branding and network of services. Such innovations have provided the necessary infrastructure and platform required to provide the very exacting standards of service required by our clients and partners alike.

We now believe we are truly a global consolidator, having added several new services during the last year and we will continue to expand the origins and destinations during the coming years.

In conjunction with our policy of Local Corporate Responsibility, we continue to donate a certain percentage of our net profits to local, national and overseas charities. This year we are proud to support the worthwhile charity Help for Heroes and will be donating monthly.

Much of the success of our organisation has been due to your continued support for which we are all grateful. We have never made a secret of our desire to be recognised as one of the world’s leading consolidators. Having achieved this, we are determined to remain there. We will continue to innovate and find efficient and cost effective solutions, and in so doing enjoy a long and prosperous future together.

With Kind Regards,
Andrew Smithurst
Brand CEO
