RLT Ltd Bulk Haulage

RLT Ltd Bulk Haulage Leader case study.

Project description

The company was formed in 1998 as a specialist haulage transport business, operating in the aggregate and agricultural sectors, offering specialist transport for bulk loads and tipper haulage. The business has grown rapidly, particularly over the last two years, as the construction industry recovers from recession and evidenced demand for services now exceeds capacity. A 30 tonne truck and trailer has been purchased to meet demand.

Need for project

The haulage business is currently experiencing high demand for its specialist transport services for the distribution of agricultural grain and aggregate products, increasing the supply chain activity with other leading local businesses. The project will increase the capacity of the business to transport bulk agricultural and construction products by 20% as other finance is not available.
