How does it help me?
- Fast – get your route approved in seconds not days
- Efficient – less admin time wasted faxing over routes or chasing up approvals
- Reassuring – as all route information is updated regularly, you can be sure your drivers will avoid height, weight and width restrictions and difficult terrain like tight turns.
- Compliant – eliminates the risk of a penalty charge; if you receive an enquiry from London Councils Lorry Control, you can prove that the route was authorised prior to the journey, as you have an audit trail.
Access to the system is charged annually based on the number of vehicles registered. For operators with more than 30 vehicles call 0207 952 0450.
