A business built on strong foundations
UK Automotive Onsite Logistics A business built on strong foundations Rudolph and Hellmann Automotive operate solely in the UK and is the offspring of two German parent companies. The Rudolph Group, who bring extensive automotive expertise, and Hellmann Worldwide Logistics, global automotive logistics market leaders who provide supply chain solutions and a UK infrastructure.

Pioneers and innovators of onsite automotive logistics in the UK

We were created to change the way onsite automotive logistics operated in the UK. Backed by two privately owned giants of automotive logistics we have unrivalled automotive experience. The concept of ‘activity based costing’ is now widely used in all logistics, but it was R&HA who pioneered this innovative 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. We've implimented more vehicle model changes, working with more automotive brands, than any other 3PL in the UK. If you know things need to change, but not sure where to start, we’re here to help you successfully navigate the challenges ahead. With the support of our parent companies, we have access to a vast UK infrastructure. Being privately owned also means decisions can be made, swiftly, even for the largest of commercial ventures.

If you want your logistics processes to be leaner, we can help

As the leading provider of ‘on site’ logistics services, Rudolph and Hellmann Automotive specialise in removing inefficiency and waste from your logistics processes. Our expertise ranges from the management of large time sensitive warehouses to direct production line feed and sub assembly. Operating with discretion and integrity, several other UK manufacturers in the automotive sector have since benefited from our ‘on site’ logistics solutions.

 

Turn change into an advantage and rethink how 'Stop Start' logistics can become your strategic advantage.
