The RLC supports and sustains the Army by land, sea and air. We are everywhere, always. At the forward edge of every conflict with vital supplies. At the heart of humanitarian disaster with essential aid. Working with the security forces to protecting the nation; meeting every challenge.

Unique to the RLC, 40 percent of the Corps works within the other corps, regiments and formation headquarters that make up the Army. This offers our people unrivalled opportunities to gain experience, travel and further their careers.
