About us

Some of our claims to fame

Established in 1994 Bradtrans International Ltd was formed to provide an efficient personal service which is often lacking from larger organisations.

Strategically located in the centre of the UK the small family business philosophy of getting it right first time has allowed Bradtrans to flourish into probably the North of England's premier transporter into GERMANY, closely followed by Western Europe and lately Eastern Europe.

Founded by the owner Mr Anthony Bradley a graduate and Fellow of the Institute of Freight Professionals. Anthony has been involved in the Freight business for 30 years spending the last 20 years specialising in the German market.

We are unique in so far as not only are we freight forwarders but we also operate our own fleet of vehicles.
