Market-leading Cardinal Global Logistics Joins Excellence Academy Spring Lineup

6 November 2023


Experienced freight industry professional Amanda Brunyee will join the roster of top presenters for Chamber International’s fourth Excellence Academy programme, beginning in February.

A full member of the Institute of Export and International Trade, with 20 years of experience in the freight-moving sector, she now holds a pivotal role at Cardinal Global Logistics, reportedly the UK’s fastest-growing logistics services provider, serving more than 6,000 clients, from more than 25 offices around the world. 


As Cardinal’s business development manager, Amanda understands well the challenges that British businesses face, in today’s challenging freight-moving environment.  She is also uniquely positioned to see how a major logistics company works, from the point of view of her customers. 

Both air and sea freight rates have seen huge fluctuations in the last few years, as a result of erratic demand levels, regional conflicts, and changing fuel prices.  Businesses have also had to make adjustments to their operating models, as a result of Britain’s exit from the EU.  These factors have added volatility into the freight-moving market, leaving some exporters and importers feeling “all at sea”.

Amanda will deliver the third session in the Excellence Academy program, entitled “Getting the Best out of Your Freight Forwarder”. 

Each cohort of Academy delegates is strictly limited to ten, in order to ensure a more personal, individual learning experience.  Course leaders and guest experts are renowned industry professionals, supported by a qualified team of assessors, accredited to Training and Development Lead Body (TDLB) standards.

Chamber International director, Tim Bailey, said, “A good freight forwarder is crucial at any time, but more so now, as we see an increase in global geopolitical challenges disrupting trade. We’re pleased to be working with an industry leader and look forward to Amanda’s contribution to this, our most popular training programme.”
