Andante Freight Ltd are experienced and reputable freight forwarders who have been offering reliable sea freight and RoRo, road freight, air freight, and import services to happy customers for over 25 years.
Strategically located in Bradford, West Yorkshire, the business was established in 1994 by Roger Carrington and Julian Steel, who still own and run the company. Over the years, we have grown into one of the leading consolidators of groupage cargo to the main Mediterranean ports, before expanding our service in later years to include the Middle East, Indian sub-continent, and, most recently, the Far East.
For customers’ added convenience, in 2014, we opened an office at the largest seaport in the UK – in Felixstowe, Suffork.
Why Choose Our Freight Forwarding Services?
- Wide-ranging Coverage – areas our freight forwarding services cover include: the Mediterranean, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent, Singapore, Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, and the Far East.
- Value-Added Service – with owned offices and our own circa 15,000 square foot warehouse in Bradford we are based where our goods are, increasing the efficiency of our services.
- No Job Too Big or Too Small – our wide customer base is a testament to the fact that our staff will happily help anyone, from single-person operations to multi-national customers!

- Knowledgeable – many of our motivated, qualified and committed staff have worked in freight forwarding for most of their working life, earning them exceptional industry experience.
- Hands-on – all our Directors are directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the business, ensuring customers receive high-quality, personal service from staff at all levels of the business.
Success has not only come through hard work and dedication of all the company’s personnel but from a commitment by the owners to continue investment into resources to provide solutions to our customers’ needs.
