CGL Director Dan Humphries is running the 2014 London Marathon in support of the St.Elizabeth Hospice which is an independent charity providing services free of charge to patients with progress illness.
These services cost £9.1 million a year to run, with almost three quarters of that figure coming from the local community. The hospice is solely reliant on fundraising, donations and volunteers.

CGL is proud to have recently received the accolade of being ranked amongst the top five UK Customers (freight forwarders) from one of the World’s major shipping lines. The accolade is a reflection of the volume of business being handled between CGL and the Shipping line. This is due to our ever-expanding base of loyal customers and the consequential volume of freight that we are responsible for shipping. This news comes as testament to the outstanding relationships that CGL has built, and places great value on maintaining, with both service providers and customers alike.
Matt Hope, Director, comments: “This is an achievement which we are mightily proud of. Having come from humble beginnings just seven years ago, to now being recognized by a global carrier as one of their Top 5 UK customers, is quite staggering, and a true credit to the phenomenal team of people we have working here.”
