Transport Managers - we provide an affordable, quick and easy solution to help planning routes for large vehicles, saving you time and money. The system is integrated with industry standard mapping (from google) to help you fill in Movement Orders easily. If you have a web browser then you are already all setup to use MOPS (Movement Order Planning System) - and all you need is a logon.
MOPS is based on our massive database - the one used for guiding satnav's around Restrictions - which can also be sued for planning. The solution is cheap, quick to setup and can be used immediately. Because it web based, you wont need any IT staff or expenses to get it operating ! Why not have a look below at the system being used and see if this is something that might help you.
To get more info or order a licence is simple - call us on 07920056333 / 0845 388 6475 and ask about MOPS. You will need to tell us how many vehicles you operate and roughly the number of orders a month.

The directions produced are fantastic and can be printed very easily. Below is a picture of a sample route, withy the name of the road, little icon to show directions and the distance - drivers love this. It can also be easily cut/pasted straight into a Movement Order to speed it up. If you want to see the full map and directions click HERE FOR PDF
signs may also be required in some circumstances. For guidance on signage please refer to RC3. An abnormal load is a vehicle of indivisible load which exceeds a gross weight of 40 Tonnes (on five axles),44 Tonnes (on six axles)
or with an axle load greater than 11.5 tonnes, more than 3 metres (9 feet 10 inches) wide or more than 18.75 metres (61 feet 6 inches) long.Due to its location, Milton Keynes is likely to have a high proportion of bot h as it is positioned on the strategic national road network eDemocracy area of our site
We are committed to providing a good quality service to our customers and have publishedservice standard
journey. The road network has therefore been divided into four different categories each with differing characteristics:
The images you get are great and anywhere you go can be seen in real world and map views. Here we are looking at the start, the yard - but its also good for finding the right destination s well. Just a quick note – one of the KEY THINGS we offer is how to SETUP the MOPS properly for use. We are experts at this and nice touches - like the large lorry here so you can find where you are easily really helps ! This isn't hard to do - but having everything set right from the beginning makes using it fun.
With the MOPS tool you can very quickly plan, alter, check and then re-gauge routes for your vehicles. The system is integrated and has all the parts you need, we will help you set it up as well for best use. The beauty is that we provide access to the data sets you need – and you can use this on any web enabled device.
You can "drive through" a real world animation of the journey - look at problem entrances to places ! You can try one route, alter it and try another and then check them both ! You can also step by step go through it with the driver and discuss the final route with him and anything you need him to be aware of. You can save a route you planned and use it later. You can easily print off the route for others, with map and every turn restrictions. You get the cost of fuel (if you import the vehicle) and the directions, compass, distances and all street names. Print them and also copy and paste the turn by turn directions you’re your movement orders.
We have made a local route from the yard to a nearby High Street as a demo to show you how simple it is. We typed in the postcode for the Destination and used the Truck Logo for the Start, then clicked GET DIRECTIONS and the map below appears.
So that's good, we have a route - however we need to make sure it OK for an HGV - right ?
The route we have runs from A to B – we
can see to the left the Turn by Turn directions and the
map view from above. From this standard view it would be
OK for a car - not for an HGV ! SO lets use MOPS now ...
The example here will look at Low Bridges just to show how it works, the full MOPS solution also has narrow roads, bollards, weight limits, width restrictions and so forth included.
We now turn on the MOPS features and our database kicks into life to show us the map view here below.
From the map we can see clearly that some of the route we had planned does seems to go right through a few bridges and they seem to be pretty low at 12ft 6 or so (just to right of the B destination)
The system allows a lot of flexibility, w can swap map views from flat map with lines, to terrain, to real world views and back. We wont confuse matters by showing everything that can be done - but we will investigate those bridges.
We can see clearly the route going through the Low Bridges to the north end. It looks like there MAY BE an alternative to the North going up Station Way just before the bridges, but perhaps not we need to check.
We have zoomed in quickly to the 12ft 6 bridge on the North Road and it looks pretty likely there is a Low Bridge here because the "real world" view shows a Railway going over the road. Normally using the MOPS you would assume the label is correct and try another route - however if you nee to be sure (or if like us you are showing how accurate our DATABASE is) then you can look closer.
Well, here is the “proof of the pudding” we have zoomed in to the Street View of that location and on the A5009 Leek Road (we see above) sure enough we can see two things ! First there is a Low Bridge and the sign on it says 12ft 6in exactly - so our data is proven to be accurate and correct. Secondly - we can see that the MOPS icons are also there showing 12ft 6in heights, pointing your where to look. Without the MOPS data - a quick check of the routes would be impossible, which is why its so useful !
We know theres a problem on themain route and we wont be able to use the road we had planned. Switching to the flat map (from Street view) we can also se now that the North road has a 10ft 6in bridge on it too ! That rules out going north as an alternative - you can see how quickly we switched from the first route map (above) to this possible alternative (which is also ruled out now).
The system lets you easily just "drag" the route around between possible roads easily and intuitively. This is by far the best and easiest way to get the right route and you can see each of the possibilities. We now need to try a third way - this time going out to the West first before going North.
So far in doing this, we have tried out 3 routes and spent perhaps 5 minutes in total.
We need to verify the final route is all OK and to do this we need to zoom in to the left of the map and look to make sure there are no Restrictions we missed. Here we see the area and its a zoomed map - everything looks fine and the route avoids those Restrictions.
If you click on a Restriction when on the map - extra details popup to help you like below.
We would now print this off with the map and the turn by turn directions. To see what this looks like you can have look at the start or CLICK HERE to see it.
The text from the TURN by TURN direction we would cut and paste into a movement order for use later. We would also save the route so we can call it up and share it with divers and others easily.
We hope this has excited you enough to want to discuss it some more ? You can call us on 07920056333 and as for MOPS. Once the licence has been bought, you could be using the solution within 2 days.
As standard the system will make the TURN by TURN text up and let you print it off for use. With everything on the one screens, you can get hard copies to share with people really easily. Also you can go through the route with a driver later because every route can be saved.
There is also the ability to see two screens at once to save you having to keep switching when you want to check up on what may be a problem of access, Restrictions etc,. Here we see the split screen view and can see above the real world view and below the same map corresponding to that.
If you need more advanced abilities later on - we can also help you take routes off the screen and onto other devices, like iPhones. Save the routes and let anyone in your company load them onto an iPhone. Let someone have the route planned and placed onto their tomtom to them follow it ! There’s a lot that you can start doing once you look and use the integrated web mapping. How about having all your customers on a map and easily planning to all of them and check the details – from phones !
This MOPS is our fastest growing product right now,. because it operate very simply without complicated setup or IT people. It can be up and running quickly and training is a doddle - in person or over the internet. We also have our dedicated helpdesk if you have a query and the licences are cheap - being matched to the number of vehicles and orders made in a month.
Because the system is so flexible you find that it will get used more generally and not just for orders, access queries, helping people who get stuck, fuel costs, drop offs and the rest., Because its an integrated mapping system that can be extended using models - you can add to the system over time. Better still you an use it at home, on a mobile and any device with the web.
Its also very cost effective a small to medium firm running between 6 and 20 trucks, and making a few orders a week - would only pay around £500 for everything: that's a years licence, setup, solution, database and everything. If you put this against the time saved, the hassle avoided and the beauty of printing our clean routes for drivers (especially when from agencies) - its a very cost effective . To get an actual quote you will need to call us up - however its very simple and value for money.
You can pay us by CREDIT or DEBIT CARD, E-CHEQUE or using a PAYPAL account. Bank Transfer or BACS can also be used.
