Our Story


Aptarus was founded in 2014 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 opertation. 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 widly in use in the transport and logistics sector. Combining these two observations they decided to found Aptarus to provide online training, using data real world data to determine individual users training requirements.

Since 2014 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.


"Our mission is to make training and certification accessible to everyone."
