WHY RDM?

Fuel Monitoring

In an effort to reduce fuel consumption and the resultant negative emission impact on the environment, two technicians are employed full time to download relevant data at the completion of every trip. In doing so we collect essential data including driver style, speeds, gear changing habits and more. This is all analysed and shared with the driver, resulting in clever, cleaner operating, minimizing fuel consumption and keeping costs low.​

Transit Times

We believe our transit times to be extremely efficient. Our transit times from Johannesburg to Harare range from 25 to 48 hours and Johannesburg to Lusaka ranges from 72 to 96 hours

Dependability

RDM Logistics has a proud history of dependable and efficient service. We only commit to our customers the volume of vehicles that we are confident we can supply on a weekly basis. Our dependability is major factor in our success.

Communication

Our vehicles are tracked and monitored 24/7 via the ICAB camera tracking system. Tracking updates are emailed to all customers twice daily, before 08:00am and an afternoon update at 16:00pm. In addition to the tracking reports we give our clients access to our live tracking platform where they are able to view trucks under load with their loads at any time of the day or night.

Border Clearance

RDM Logistics has its own clearing company, RDM Clearing based at Beit Bridge and Groblersbrug. Working together with our clearing agency we ensure that all documentation is in place and pre-cleared in an effort to eradicate unnecessary delays at border posts.​

Security

ICAB 2000 enhanced security system: The ICAB 2000 device is an onboard system that automates warnings and emergency indicators that set in motion a sequence of response measures. This device is installed in each of our trucks, with constant video surveillance, driver communication and a vast array of security features.
