Unrivalled Automotive Logistics Experience

Formed in 1999 as a partnership of the two privately owned logistics giants, The Rudolph Group and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, the mission of R&HA was to introduce a different model of logistics to the UK automotive sector.

The concept of ‘activity based costing’ is now widely used in all logistics, but it was R&HA who pioneered this innovate finance model in the UK. Our first major contract was with Rover, in 2000 and the business soon expanded to other OEM’s. Today we hold the record for the longest running continual automotive logistics contract, and have worked with the Worlds leading automotive brands.

Our unique approach and focus on automotive logistics is what sets us apart - if you have a logistics challenge, get in touch.
