Headquartered in Northumberland, Mandata designs and develops software that allows road transport operators to manage workflow and data more effectively.

Its transport management system integrates a suite of end-to-end products, including traffic planning and management, tracking, telematics, and invoicing. Used by hauliers across the UK, Mandata helps its customers to improve productivity, deliver efficiency savings, and improve real-time visibility of their operations.

Lending support to a team with a vision

In May 2018 we backed the secondary buyout of Mandata in a £20m deal to support the management team’s ambitious growth strategy, underpinned by continued investment in product and proposition development, and further investment in its market-leading team.

The company supports many of the UK’s haulage businesses including 30 per cent of Motor Transport’s top 100 operators, actively managing over 10,000 vehicles, and employing 60 people at its offices in Cramlington and Leeds.
