The first 50 ‘TOPS. on the go’ systems being deployed by the end of 2012 with the remainder being rolled out across Roadways seven UK depots, with installation being completed first quarter 2013.

The system provides visibility and real time information, tracking vehicle and container movements from port or railhead to the final delivery / collection location. Automatic alerts will be sent to transport planners if delays are encountered.
