Established in 1989 by MD Gary Richards.  His mission statement “To become the preferred supplier of logistical solutions to all sectors of industry whilst maintaining the highest standards of quality, communication and customer service”.

Since incorporation Riva has continued to grow through total commitment to providing a professional quality service unmatched by our competitors.  This commitment gained us accreditation to ISO9002 in 1996. Since 2000 Riva have been members of the Road Haulage Association and operate under RHA terms & conditions for both carriage and storage.  Copies of these terms & conditions can be found by clicking the links below.

Continued expansion to both premises and service through reinvestment have proven key to ensuring that customer’s precise requirements are maintained to the highest standards. We now offer a full range of logistic services throughout the UK, Europe and Worldwide.  Our versatile company owned transport fleet consists of light vans upto 44T double deck articulated units.  These are complemented by a large fleet of forklift trucks and specialist loading & unloading equipment to ensure swift and efficient loading and unloading of goods.

Our current premises of 100,000 sq ft offer 45,000 sq ft of secure indoor storage and 55,000 sq ft of secure outdoor storage situated 5 mins North of J7 of the M27 along the Solent corridor, linking into the M3/A3(M) motorway network to the M25 and London. Our two sites are constantly monitored by state of the art digital security systems.  Additionally the main site has a permanent security presence with controlled access providing peace of mind for the safety and security of your goods. We have invested heavily in security systems as we understand it is of paramount importance whilst your goods are in our hands.

Our team of experienced professionals are dedicated to providing the highest levels of customer service.  You will find each and every one of them courteous, conscientious and dedicated to your requirements.  We have a high level of staff retention allowing customers continued contact with individual members of our team who fully understand your bespoke requirements.

Like all enterprising companies Riva are all too aware that the current environmental and economic climate brings with it its own challenges.  With this in mind Riva joined TPN (The Pallet Network) in 2000 as it saw the business model of a pallet network to be the most efficient way of ensuring maximum utilisation of carrying capacity whilst reducing not only carbon emissions but the number of vehicles on the road.  For more information on TPN click the link below.  On site we ensure that 85% of our waste material is recycled.  These responsibilities enable us to achieve the best working practices in protecting the environment, business development and reinvestment.
