Moving global health forward

Leaders in empowering the healthcare community with reliable transport throughout Africa.


Our unique system

  • Fleet management

    We have spent 30+ years running fleets for ministries of health and NGOs across Africa. Sustainability, cost control and road safety are our priorities.

  • Medical supply chain logistics

    We provide constant, reliable distribution of medical supplies to communities however distant or difficult to reach.

  • Outreach healthcare transport

    With vehicles managed by Riders, professionals can take health care and education to even hard-to-reach communities.

  • Sample transport

    Riders are experts in the safe and efficient delivery of bio-hazardous samples of infectious diseases for diagnosis.

  • Emergency health transport

    We run all-terrain ambulances and other vehicles for hospital referral.

  • Training

    Training for riders and drivers and technicians is an essential part of the service we provide.
