We would just like to say a massive thank you to all the golfers that took the time to join us at our annual golf day last Friday. The event took place at The Mere, Cheshire which is a great venue and everyone had a great time.
We raised £370 for Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society throughout the day, which was doubled by The Cardinal Charity Trust, bringing our total donation to £800! To learn more about the Stockport Cerebral Palsy Society, click here.
We look forward to seeing everybody again next year!

A few lucky members of Team Cardinal had a specially arranged tour at Manchester Airport yesterday. John and Jonathan form the Airfreight team, Emma from Cardinal 3PLus and Tom from our Warehouse were the lucky few that attended the tour arranged by Gareth Dyos of Network Airline Services, (UK GSA for Etihad Cargo).
The tour started with a warehouse tour of Dnata, then the group watched the Etihad EY022 flight being loaded for its flight to Abu Dhabi. The aircraft was a Boeing 777-300 which can hold 100m3 or 10 airline pallets worth of freight.
What a great experience for the group to see the operations at airports firsthand. Big thanks to the host for arranging the visit.

After the amendment to the international SOLAS agreement introducing the VGM requirement on the 1st July, we are pleased to say that so far so good and there are no issues to report.
We made the decision to weigh all individual shipments at our depot rather than opt for our containers to be weighed on quay.
We believe this mitigates risk and enables us to identify discrepancies and importantly take action prior to loading the container. This avoids any unnecessary short shipments, which is the potential risk we could have faced, had we opted to have our containers weighed on quay. For further information on SOLAS please contact our Senior Export Manager Rob Knot on 0161 492 1782 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Did you know that Malta was the first consolidation service that 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 email@example.com.
Team Cardinal took over The Wellspring’s kitchen last Wednesday 29th June serving a 3 course meal for homeless and disadvantaged people in Stockport.
As a group we continue to support The Wellspring and this was a great opportunity to help make a difference and understand the work that takes place at The Wellspring. It also provided a chance to meet the people that make it all happen first hand. We thank the team for their wonderful support and are glad to hear that they really enjoyed themselves!
The Wellspring is a cause that Cardinal Maritime have supported for some time now and we thought it’d be good to give their other volunteers a night off and roll our sleeves up and get into the heart of the action. The Wellspring actively engages with homeless people, providing advice and support as well as referrals into housing or supported accommodation. The staff at the centre have supported over 700 people into housing of some description. All of these people were sleeping rough on the streets of Stockport or Manchester at some time.
Cardinal are proud to announce the recent acquisition of our slave roller bed pallet at our Leestone Road facility.
Slave Pallets are devices that allow fork-lift trucks to lift-and-carry ULDs while properly supporting the fagile container base.
The audit, signed today by Senior Airfreight Manager John McBride and Andrew Galloway of KLM Cargo / Air France Cargo, allows Cardinal Plus to compete at the very highest level, demonstrating the ambitions and advanced requirements of our rapidly growing airfreight department.
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!
