Excellence Academy announces new high-profile sponsor

3 April 2023


Cardinal Global Logistics is to sponsor two cohorts of Chamber International’s Excellence Academy, the two parties announced on Wednesday 29 March.


The Academy is a practical export training programme for international trade professionals. It was launched in September 2022 to strengthen the skills of British exporters, and help them adapt to the challenges posed by today’s international trade environment.  It is accredited by British Chambers of Commerce, and run by Chamber International in partnership with specially-chosen training and assessment provider Fidelitas Training. 

Cardinal will sponsor two cohorts of ten industry-based delegates this autumn, for the six-week programme.

One of Cardinal’s logistics experts will join the Academy’s panel of guest speakers to share tips with delegates on how to “get the most out of” their freight forwarders. Furthermore, the delegates, who come from a wide range of exporting businesses, will be hosted for a day at one of Cardinal’s logistics facilities, where they will get to experience how an international logistics company manages its operations.

The company has been invited to present awards to delegates at a graduation reception, to be held at the Mayfair headquarters of the Arab British Chamber of Commerce, next April.

Cardinal is the UK’s fastest-growing logistics services provider, currently serving more than 6,000 clients, from more than 25 offices around the world.

Cardinal’s sales director Gareth Sumner (pictured right), said: “We believe in educating exporters, to help them understand the challenges that international logistics providers face.  We have never sponsored a training programme before, but when the opportunity came up to partner with Chamber International, we didn’t hesitate.” 

Chamber International’s director Tim Bailey, said:  "We are thrilled to have Cardinal on board as our official sponsor; their support will allow us to take the Academy to the next level and provide an even more engaging experience for our attendees. Cardinal is a well-known market leader with a reputation for innovation and excellence, which makes them a perfect fit for this partnership.”
