“The Cardinal team has worked alongside us over many years to create a simple, smooth and more effective supply chain. It’s been great for our business as we can now see more of our supply chain and we work with our partners more efficiently.”

Adam Howarth, Character World

“Our 6 year relationship with Cardinal is credited to their superior service levels along with their extensive knowledge within their market. Our cargo is handled professionally with timely and efficient deliveries, we have access to a 24/7 dedicated team which is unprecedented and is of great help with the constant changes and requirements of the fast moving retail sector.”

Basia Malewski, Poundstretcher

This has been backed up with solid KPI’s and SLA adherence, which has enabled Sambro to concentrate on our core business functions and objectives with confidence and assurance.”

Carl Woodthorpe, SAMBRO
