Captain’s Game Day

We recently introduced a weekly game day in DotCom in order to inject some more fun and energy into the office and to get everybody starting the day with a smile.  We believe a fun environment creates a happy and productive work force.

The game is changed regularly and so far we have had teams battling against the clock to throw the most balls in a basket, blow up and tie the most balloons, and Play Your Cards Right.

The winning team holds the prestigious “The Captain’s Cup” and the respect of their colleagues for the week, before the competitiveness starts again the following Tuesday!  You can check out the winners each week on our twitter page @cardinalcaptain.

Dubai Double!

I am pleased to announce that we have recently launched a weekly LCL service direct from Dubai to Felixstowe. The service will cut off on a Tuesday for a Sunday sailing, with a transit time of approximately 28 days into Felixstowe.
The Freight rate from Dubai is $45w/m but as usual, we may be able to offer spot rates for high volume or for cargo that is ready to ship. We can offer a full door to door service, if required, and can also assist with Customs Clearance at origin or destination.
This is an exciting announcement and I am confident that this service will be as successful as our existing export service to Dubai, which currently loads and sails twice weekly from the U.K.
Other Middle East origins and destinations are also available upon request, including our weekly direct service to Jeddah.
Please speak to your dedicated Account Manager for further information, or you can contact us on 0845 077 4060 or by email at commercial-team@cardinalmaritime.com

Mike Kane MP starts the construction of our new Sharston Warehouse

sharston rd 2b

This morning, Mike Kane, MP for Wythenshawe and Sale East attended our official groundbreaking ceremony, to formally mark the start of construction of our new 40,000 sq ft warehouse facility in Sharston.

The warehouse and office facility is being built on 2.8 acres of prime development land. The site is less than a kilometre from our head office on Leestone Road, and adjacent to our historic Grade II listed warehouse on Harling Road.

Completion is scheduled for January 2018 and it will create 20 new jobs with 10 existing employees also moving from head office.

Our CEO, Brian Hay said: “Our 38,000 sq. ft. head office and Harling Road facilities were at full capacity, it was vital that we looked for additional space. The 2.8 acres next to the existing building have allowed us to build our third facility in the Wythenshawe area and create more local jobs.”

Brian added: “We are continuing to see impressive growth at Cardinal Maritime and, as a result, we are actively looking for potential new sites in the local area to construct further warehousing space. As a company, we are committed to the local area and developing local talent. Our aim is to train and inspire the next generation of freight professionals here in Wythenshawe.”
