Manage your transport operations more effectively with the UK’s leading transport management system,


Whether you are a logistics company operating contracts for a number of clients, or an in-house logistics operation working on a dedicated basis, our transport management system does all this:


Online Portal

Manage your orders at consignment order and item level, with orders captured electronically through flexible EDI capability, on screen or through the CALIDUS Online portal.


Planning and optimisation

Plan and optimise vehicle trips, optimising your driver miles and reducing empty running miles. Effectively manage your trips from loading and despatch, through to final proof of delivery.


Movement control

Control movements that involve multiple pick up with single or multiple drops, single pick up with single or multiple drop, mix of collection and delivery on a single trip, trunking, crossdocking and trailer swaps.


Real-time Communications

Use real-time communications with in-cab or mobile devices for real time data capture as trips are executed. See greater visibility and tracking of the fleet and record first-hand the outcome of each collection or delivery.


Equipment tracking

Integrated pallet and equipment tracking minimises the all too often high cost of losses.


Tariff and billing facilities

Comprehensive tariff and billing facilities help you charge for completed services, and combined with inbuilt costing of vehicle operations, get instant trip, vehicle and contract profitability analysis.
