The Wellspring Van Donation

Wellspring Van 1 small

The Cardinal Trust has proudly donated a van to The Wellspring charity. As you know, The Wellspring is a resource centre for homeless  and disadvantaged people in Stockport and a charity we’ve supported for sometime now.

The van will be used to collect donations from homes and businesses and to transport donations from storage etc. The van will be a great asset and resource for the charity but also gives one of their volunteers, Nicky, the opportunity of his very first paid job. Nicky originally used the services of The Wellspring, with them supporting his rehabilitation from drug addiction and a life of crime and with their support started volunteering everyday and has done now for the last two years. With Cardinal Maritime’s donation of a van, Nicky can now start his new job of being a van driver for 15 hours a week of paid work.

Congratulations to Nicky and we wish him all the best!

Manchester to Blackpool Bike Ride 2016

Bike-Ride-Cropped-1024x475It is that time of year again and Team Cardinal will be racing to the finish when taking part in the annual Manchester to Blackpool bike ride.

We will be cycling over 60 miles starting our journey at the Imperial War Museum, Manchester, following the scenic country lanes of Lancashire and then crossing the finish line on the South Promenade in Blackpool.

We will be raising money for Donna’s Dream House Charity in Blackpool, which is a locally based charity riding free holiday experiences for children and teenagers with life-threatening illnesses and their families and for recently bereaved siblings and their families. Whilst the voluntary team of Donna’s Dream House provides the expertise, enthusiasm and administration, it is the generosity of many companies and individuals raising money that makes their dream a reality.

Each year we aim to raise more money for Donna’s Dream House and this year we are hoping to smash our target of £500 when cycling to the finish in 2016. To achieve this, any donations, no matter how big or small will be greatly appreciated.

Malta Service

captain driving truck to MaltaDid you know that Malta was the first consolidation service that we started at the very beginning of the Cardinal Maritime journey more than 18 years ago? It still remains a flagship service today, except now the service moves by road instead of by sea with an incredible transit time of just 5 days; this means we can offer a full door to door service in just 7 days!

With competitive rates to rival container services and a transit that can’t be beaten; you can be sure to use the best service available on the market.

To take advantage of this service or for rates & service details contact your Account manager or the commercial team on 0845 077 4060 or email commercial-team@cardinalmaritime.com.

SOLAS; we’re ready, are you?

Captain ContainerOn the 1st July 2016, the amendment to SOLAS comes into force which requires the shipper to provide a Verified Gross Mass (VGM) of a loaded container prior to loading onto a vessel.

There will be two Methods to establish VGM which can be summarised as follows:-

  • Method 1 to weigh the loaded container on a weighbridge
  • Method 2 to weigh individual consignments, add the cumulative weights together plus the Tare weight of the container and dunnage

For our consolidation services we will be adhering to Method 2 and will be weighing all individual pieces of cargo at our own facility; which we believe is the only way to have accurate information regarding the weights of cargo prior to loading and therefore less risk of potential problems upon arrival at the port of exit.

This is a significant investment for us but we feel that this demonstrates our commitment to safeguarding the future of the industry while leading the way in industry development.

For more information on SOLAS contact Rob Knott on 0845 077 4028 or e-mail rob.knott@cardinalmaritime.com.
