"As we approached our busiest time of year, without question we did not anticipate the earthquake on November 14th. The quake and its following aftershocks created very difficult and dangerous conditions in various parts of the upper South Island and lower North Island. In the days that followed, we expected and braced for major disruption to rail and road freight transport. I can confidently assume that the entire team at Cardinal felt enormous pressure on their capability to keep the wheels turning at this time. We anticipated, like many other companies no doubt, that our customers would suffer extended delivery delays and at worst, non-delivery of product. Very quickly however our expectations were exceeded and a lot of our concerns put to rest when we started receiving positive, clear and comprehensive status updates from Cardinal. I was extremely impressed with Cardinals rapid, over and above strategic and operational logistics preparation and planning in response to the earthquake. The natural disaster situation not only enabled Cardinal to demonstrate next level organisational capability, but also genuine care and concern for their clients. As a consequence of Cardinal’s speed, effort, intelligence and experience, we suffered minimal disruption and minimal out of stocks with our retailers. The past few weeks have reinforced to me that Cardinal are an extremely effective and efficient warehousing and logistics partner for Red Bull New Zealand Ltd."

"I’d like to take the opportunity to say thanks for the great job you all did with providing offsite storage / distribution for us, since just prior to the June 13 quake. It was always going to be a difficult exercise distributing from 2 locations on opposite sides of town, but the co-ordination and diligence shown by you all has delivered a great result for SCA with maintaining service levels to our customers. Once again, thanks, your efforts are much appreciated, you have all been outstanding."

"We had a 100% delivered on time for the month of July with FSSI, well done to you and the drivers."
