Choose a Defence Partner That Delivers


We do not fit defence requirements around our existing products – we work with prime contractors and defence representatives to determine the right solution.  This means we focus on the outcome from the outset of the project, delivering to the agreed specification, on time.

We work with you to understand the theatre of operations of the NZDF and ADF and we understand how to move goods quickly and efficiently across Australia, New Zealand and the world. This ensures we deploy on time and to contract requirements. Find out more about our logistical capability.



 When you choose TRT, it’s for the long haul!
