RTMS Accreditation

Road Transport Management System (RTMS)


It is industry-led, voluntary self-regulation scheme that encourages consignees, consignors and transport operators engaged in the road logistics value chain to implement a vehicle management system that preserves road infrastructure, improves road safety and increases the productivity of the logistics value chain.


The scheme supports the Department of Transport’s National Freight Logistics Strategy.

Benefits of Accreditation

Transport operators who invest in becoming RTMS accredited are recognized for their commitment to responsible business through a series of concessions.

Being an Accredited member of RTMS is prerequisite for consideration of implementation of Project Based Standard (PBS) Vehicles).
