“Rioz is not your everyday run-of-the-mill logistics company. Our commitment to delivering excellence isn’t commonplace in our industry. For my team and me, maintaining a warm, proactive stance, even when the odds are stacked against us, is absolutely essential to how we do business. We educate our team on these values, and they’re integral to our hiring process. Despite being a small company in an unfriendly economic and political environment for small businesses, we’re growing through the storm. And that’s because every day we remind ourselves of our values.” – Rob Osgood, Director

RIOZ was born from friendship, Rob Osgood and Tim Rivers were in their early 20s when they decided to form a business together. Hungry to make their mark in the Logistics world, RIOZ is an acronym inspired by the founders’ names, RI from Tim Rivers and OZ from Rob Osgood.
“We started this business as friends, and we try to project that in our business, how we deal with our staff, how we deal with our clients, it’s all very personable and positive…That is the nature of who we are,” said Rob.
The two friends met during their school days as young boys in the UK; they played football together and attended the same schools as they grew. Rob’s father, Geoff Osgood ran his own logistics company with experience of over 40 years in the industry, this is where Rob and Tim learned their trade.
Now enjoying relationships with a number of prestigious clients, RIOZ have grown their business and service capabilities, implementing and streamlining global supply chains.
