About RTT

In an industry such as logistics, it’s rare for a defining value to be anything other than price.


Established in June 1980, the RTT Group has since gained tremendous experience and insight into a multitude of markets, which has positioned the business to address specific channel supply chain models across all industries.

At RTT we are passionate about supply chain excellence and believe that through smart planning we can help our clients achieve efficiencies in their supply chain while delivering on their strategic objectives.

We do this by harnessing the expertise that lies within our distinct business divisions and our extensive geographic network that spans not only the African Continent but the world. Combining this expertise and network capability, we have taken our service offering far beyond that of traditional logistics companies. RTT’s Intelligent Logistics is about analysing the information generated by the core function of transportation and logistics and using that analysis to make informed, business driven decisions guided by client needs.

What does RTT Do?
