Aptarus was founded in 2015 by Karl Lusted and Martin Farrell after they identified the need for data driven training in the transport and logistics sector. While working at Blue Tree Systems (a leading telematics provider) Karl and Martin noticed that fleets were overwhelmed by the amount of data that their telematics system was generating. These fleets were only using a small amount of this data in their day-to-day operation. Karl and Martin realised that this data could be put to good use.
At the same time Karl and Martin realised that although Online Training was becoming popular in some industries it was not widely in use in the transport and logistics sector. Combining these two observations they decided to found Aptarus to provide online training, using real world data to determine individual training requirements for each driver.
Since the initial launch of their learning platform in 2017, Aptarus has been hard at work developing a Learning Management System (LMS) which is designed specifically for the needs of transport and logistics sector. Working closely with driver trainers and other industry experts Aptarus has also developed bespoke training courses which are designed to be easy to understand, yet effective.
Aptarus also provide online training and certification services to Thermo King Corp., the world leader in Transport Temperature Control.
