Mandata is a market-leading developer of transport management software.

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 customers to improve productivity, deliver efficiency savings, and improve real-time visibility of their operations.

Recent innovations have extended functionality into mobile technology platforms including electronic proof of delivery, and a completely new cloud transport management system which is available to smaller hauliers, who can also benefit from the wider technology suite through TMS Go!

Under the leadership of CEO Mark Norcliffe, Mandata has grown rapidly. Today it supports many of the UK’s haulage businesses including 30% of Motor Transport’s top 100 operators, actively managing over 10,000 vehicles, and employs 60 people at its offices in Cramlington and Leeds. 

In May 2018 LDC 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.

We've made significant progress in recent years and are now at a key point in our growth journey. We're an ambitious business and by partnering with LDC we not only have the financial support to help us turbocharge growth, but a strategic partner that brings a track record of supporting high-growth technology businesses, has an on-the-ground presence in the North and an in-depth knowledge of our sector.
