About Us

How many transport companies based in Sussex and still going strong today were trading back in 1972?


Hint... - You won't need two hands to count them!

Brighton Carriers have been providing an unparalleled delivery service  to local and national industry since 1972. Whilst not quite as old as Brighton itself, we are very proud of our heritage, 

What we started back then, under the strong guidance and service led ethos of the Cowley family, has expanded greatly, enabling us to offer a complete logsitics solution

Can you name this model of van?

Courier delivery van. Mainly for Brighton to London deliveries, passing by Burgess Hill & Crawley

Brighton Carrier’s first ever van! 

Purchased in 1972, the Comma van was  used for daily parcel deliveries from Brighton to London and remained at  the heart of our growing fleet until sold in 1976. 

Brighton to London  deliveries formed the core of our freight movements in the 1970’s and  1980’s while expansion was underway with the introduction of services to  other parts of the UK

Growing Up


 By 1992 we were offering a total National and European roadfreight  solution. The worldwide export and import arm was added in 1994 and  strategic partnerships with major airlines, shipping lines and  forwarding agents, allowed us to offer a worldwide service to and from  almost anywhere in the world. 

1998 saw the opening of our first purpose built premises that we now occupy, giving us the opportunity to offer our  clients a full warehousing and pick & pack service; the last link in  the logistics chain. 

In 2011 Brighton Carriers was purchased from the Cowley family by Courier Express. The result of which led to considerable investment in vehicles, staff and warehousing to faciliate further growth
