The aim of this Guide should be to explain step-by-step the types of IT that can be used in road transport operations, from the basic use of PCs, through more specialised packages like CVRS, tracking devices, PDA use for driver communication etc and to outline how operational efficiency improvements might be achieved through their use.


This Guide provides an independent overview of available IT systems, demonstrating their uses and benefits, associated costs as well as issues to consider.
