We may be partial, but what a great looking team! Last night our CV International & Capes Shipping Agencies Norfolk teams were able to take a much-deserved break and enjoy a beautiful fall evening at Topgolf. We are so thankful for an incredible group of talented professionals who not only take great care of our customers and community, but who take care of each other...did we mention we are hiring!? 😜 Thanks for a fun night everyone and thank you for all you do to help navigate these crazy times in the supply chain.

CV International and Capes Shipping Agencies are proud to partner with the Virginia Maritime Association in their efforts to raise $100,000 for the Federation of Virginia Food Banks.

Even before the onset of COVID-19, over 842,000 Virginians worried where their next meal would come from. Since then, hunger in Virginia has risen from 9.9% to more than 22%. In addition, roughly 450,000 children relying on reduce-priced or free lunches are now without a guaranteed school meal, and together we can make a difference to those in need throughout our community.

Please consider joining this fight against hunger with us by donating at the link below today. https://vafoodbanks.org/VMA2020/
I worked for Capes from 1965 until 1967 with Jerry Parks, Bob Apperson, Betty Reiter and Margie Reynolds. It was a great experience with very good people.

A Holiday Message from Capes Shipping and CVI President & CEO, Mike Coleman:

Dear Valued Colleagues, Clients, Partners and Friends,

As we say good-bye to 2021, our team at CVI and Capes Shipping Agencies have taken the time to reflect on the many blessings we have had over the past year. The challenges in global logistics continue with no end in sight. We are fortunate to have an exceptional team, one that rises to the challenge every day, to help our customers navigate the complications and unpredictability of international shipping. We are also acutely aware that while we face professional challenges, there are many facing extreme personal challenges.

In the spirit of gratitude, we are continuing our tradition of charitable contributions on behalf of our team, our valued customers, and partners. Our team decided to continue supporting Habitat for Humanity International and Feeding America. Both organizations do exceptional work for communities and people in need. Most recently, they quickly responded to the devastating weather experienced in Western Kentucky, the Midwest, and Southern U.S. to help families rebuild their lives.

Each of our office locations also elect local charities to support that help those in need. This year we were proud to again support The Store House Ministry, Samaritan's Purse, ForKids, inc., Atlanta Ronald McDonald House Charities and Seaman’s Centers in ports we serve. We are grateful for the work all these charities do and we are honored to support them.

Many of our team members have served, or have family that have served, in the military. Military service, and the sacrifices of our service members and their families hold a special place in all our hearts. We were all deeply saddened earlier this month by the tragic death of Cmdr. Brian Bourgeois in a training accident in Virginia Beach. He was serving as Commander of Seal Team 8 and had several awards and decorations in his service record, including a Bronze Star, a Defense Meritorious Service Medal, and an Iraq Campaign Medal. He left behind a wife and five children. On his behalf, and all that have served, we are donating to the ALL IN ALL THE TIME Foundation. This Foundation provides immediate response to the needs of Naval Special Warfare families and has set up a fund to help support the family of Cmdr. Bourgeois.

On behalf of our entire team, thank you for your support, for your trust in us and for the opportunity to serve you. Your support allows us the opportunity to give back to the community and those in need. For that, we are all truly grateful. Happy Holidays to you, your colleagues and your families and best wishes for a prosperous and healthy 2022!

Sincerely,
Mike Coleman
President & CEO
CVI and Capes Shipping
