RTC was formed on 12 Sept 1996, with a
core staff of just four. They included its founder Mr. Sinith as
the Director, an accountant and two operations staff. The first office was
located near Phnom Penh's Royal Palace. It's first principle client was Naga
Cement . Their project was to transport cement from the company's Kampot
Factory to location nationally.
The formation of the company was at a
fortuitous moment - the construction boom was beginning in Cambodia and cement
was in high demand. It enabled RTC to expand its fleet to meet increasing
demand. Seven new vehicles with 40 tonne load capacity quickly justified the
capital investment and customers welcomed the faster, larger deliveries: A new
distribution point on the Thai-Cambodia border at Poipet was
established to move imported materials across the country; Road conditions at
this time were frequently bad and often atrocious, testing to the limit
logistic skills and ingenuity. It helped RTC to become a name to trust, the
ability to move bulk cargoes whatever.
road conditions are hugely improved, with all-weather roads leading from the
capital to the Thai and Vietnamese borders; seven bridges now replace the river
ferries, enabling greater loads to be moved to and from the Koh Kong
border crossing. Until today, the company has expanded its fleet to 30
units of truck and trailer and 7 small trucks and has plan to increase more
truck in the short future.
