Welcome to Cougar Freight Services Ltd.

The Company was established back in 1982 with the two directors working from a back bedroom, using a dressing table as a desk and using a petite typewriter and one telephone. Now, some 28 years later Cougar Freight Services Limited is still controlled by the founding directors Howard Grainger and David Hartley, who between them have over 60 years experience in the freight forwarding industry. Cougar now operates from offices based in Bradford which is centrally situated in the UK enabling good service from / to all points.

The directors, Howard and David are very proud of the reputation which they have built over the years in the industry, giving a friendly and highly professional service to all our clients, where you will enjoy being a customer and not a number. 

Both Howard and David are extremely conscious about the 'Hands On and Personal' approach and, as such, are always readily available at the office thereby avoiding client's displeasures in not obtaining first hand service. 

This is a profound feature of working with Cougar Freight Services Limited and the director's firmly believe this has been a great part of their success.
