Transport Manager

Complete Transport Manager Service

If you hold a Standard National or Standard International Operator’s licence, you are obliged to employ a ‘professionally competent’ person to manage your transport operations.

It is not necessary to employ a full-time Transport Manager to satisfy this legislative requirement, particularly if you are a small to medium sized operator with a relatively small fleet (e.g. 1-20 vehicles). Outsourcing your CPC (Certificate of Professional Competence) holder is an acceptable method of O licence compliance and provides a cost-effective solution at the fraction of the price of employing a dedicated member of staff.

We use the latest technology to analyse data from driver cards and tachographs which is also capable of producing the KPIs anticipated for the DVSA Earned Recognition scheme. The same software can gather information from drivers daily inspections and PMI’s so that we can collate all the relevant data required to satisfy correct operator licence management procedures.
