RTMS (Road Transport Management System)
Van der Walt Logistics is proudly RTMS (Road Transport Management System) certified (based on the SANS CODE: 1395-1:2019) which was achieved in September of 2021. The certification is subject to an annual audit of which we have successfully earned an extension until September 2023. This certification enabled us to become a Performance Based Standard Operator with Roads Authority in Namibia and the only long distance operator of “Road Trains” within Namibia, which can move up to 64 tons of payload per single truckload. The PBS concept significantly impacts an operation’s carbon footprint, in that the number of vehicles applied to a dedicated volume over time is substantially reduced. We continually investigate means to improve our service to our customers and seek opportunities where this concept can be successfully introduced.

We will keep developing our personnel, infrastructure, business opportunities and the corridors we serve in order to satisfy the needs of all our esteemed clients and business partners.
