RTM Lines History
Established in New York City in 1980, RTM Lines was founded on the belief that the ocean cargo industry required an expert firm that maintains vast knowledge, professional expertise, established long-term relationships with carriers across the world, and a responsive and personalized way of doing business. This belief became the fundamental building block of who we were then, and who we are today.
Initially, our shipping focus was rolling stock roll on-roll off (ro-ro). Over the years, we have added renowned proficiency in break bulk, FCL, and project management (specializing in complex, unusual and abnormal shipments.) In 1997, we relocated to Norwalk, Connecticut to accommodate our growing business and maintain our prime proximity to the NY and NJ ports.
