Our History

J&D Cowper Limited was established in 1984 specialising in the collection and distribution of chilled and frozen products, and we continue to do so today.

We have successfully grown from a small organisation to become one of the major refrigeration haulage companies in Scotland.

Continuous growth means J&D Cowper currently operate a fleet of 30 trucks and 40 trailers which are replaced on a constantly rolling three-year basis.

Over the years, we have developed a transport operation to and from the Highlands, which provides a vital link in the delivery chain taking goods from processing factories in the Highlands to regional distribution centres throughout the UK.

On return legs, we deliver produce to supermarket stores throughout Scotland for various customers – including some of the largest retailers in the UK food industry.

We have developed successful partnerships with the likes of Tesco and Lidl as we deliver a dependable and timely service.

A family run company that focuses on customer service

J&D Cowper’s success has been built on forging long-term partnerships with our customers based on trust and first-class service.

The company has worked in partnership with customers delivering product to UK regional delivery centres for over 15 years, and we provide a dedicated seven-day service.

Our levels of commitment cannot be questioned – we have never failed to deliver, despite challenging logistics and the severe weather conditions you find in the remote parts of the UK.

We are a family owned and run company with a strong reputation for providing a very high standard of service.

We know that is something that our customers value as we work closely with them to best understand their business and logistical requirements.

This dedication is evident in our employees too. Many of whom have worked with J&D Cowper since it began, and show a great amount of pride to work for one of the leading refrigerated haulage companies in Scotland.

Looking forward, we are continually reviewing our service to discover ways that we can save our customers cost, reduce carbon emissions and help protect the environment.

As customer service and dependability are at the forefront of our business, J&D Cowper's call centre is open 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
