Auto Scheduling

In the past run management was a time-consuming task requiring local knowledge and paper maps and a great deal of trial and error. Run management using Trans-Send can take historical deliveries and can quickly arrive as a solution using sophisticated tools. Runs can be planned automatically or by using geofences. The improvement in hardware power and more intelligent algorithms has transformed this area, allowing you to complete tasks in minutes what used to take a day.


Driver login & Real time Alerts

Ever had a hard time organising your jobs when a driver changes vehicle?

Trans-Send by Sonar links each driver to the device instead of the vehicle, allowing them to freely exit and enter any vehicle.

How it works:

  • Logins and passwords keep data secure
  • Pre-start checks increase the safety of driver and vehicle
  • If the driver is out of coverage the dispatcher is aware
  • All work is displayed for the driver
  • Easily assign jobs to workers with intuitive drag and drop functionality
  • Status updates provide real-time tracking - as the shift nears the end the dispatcher is presented with an overview of outstanding work and with the system updating automatically,reduces their workload leaving them free to manage the exceptions.

Customisable Reporting Module

Although user customised reporting is available using the Operations Manager in Trans-Send, Sonar can also provide customised reports to present data in a preferred format.


With driver safety a high priority for transport companies, the use of Telematics is providing both the driver and the company with vital feedback to improve operations . Coupling the controller to the CAN bus either directly or through a sleeve provides accurate information on the vehicle's statistics. GPS tracking is also integrated as are video cameras. This information can provide input to driver training as well as increase driver safety in real time.

For example, in the event of a rollover the phone can be activated allowing a trapped driver to call for help. Alerts can be automatically sent to the base to notify selected people that there is an issue, be that a serious one or a simple warning of a temperature rise in a refrigerated cargo space.
