Coupling a deep understanding of the dynamics of marrying a shipment to qualified providers with the complexity of moving freight throughout the NAFTA trade lanes, Rockfarm has its origins in the trucking industry.
Identifying the lack of visibility inherent to collaboration and partnership with the 3rd Party Logistics arena, Rockfarm brought its open costing approach and culture of accountability to the logistics service industry in 2008 with the formation of Rockfarm Logistics.
The result, a transportation management company that entered the market place and staked its claim in the midsize market by
creating a foundation that brought client and carrier together with the single purpose of providing value. As a result of the support of our clients we have continued to grow and add additional services for clients in the Fortune 500 and midsize markets.
Identifying a need among our clients and in the market, Rockfarm set out to give our shippers visibility into truck capacity with additional fulfillment resources to manage variable freight costs. In 2012, Rockfarm acquired RT&T Logistics, a freight brokerage company with small to Fortune 500 clients. Today RT&T Logistics provide fulfillment services across all transport modes enabling our clients to focus on their core competency. Delivering intermediary services on a transactional and contractual basis RT&T streamlines the delivery of the traditional freight brokerage model by pushing technology and process improvement integration with our carriers and clients.
After the acquisition of RT&T Logistics as a Rockfarm family company, we began to realize the opportunity to become the single source for our clients on a global scale. In 2016, Rockfarm took the next step and acquired Global Distribution & Logistics (GDL), an International Freight Forwarder and Customs Broker. The newest acquisition as a Rockfarm family company coupled with our existing portfolio of services, transportation management, consulting and freight brokerage services, has enabled us to provide a suite of services to our clients across multiple industries.
As we continue to push forward with new technologies our emphasis will continue to focus on our team and how we deliver greater value to both our client and carrier provider.
