Abstract: Presently, there are different types of monitoring systems and devices being used to monitor vehicles, products, processes and activities in manufacturing organizations. Each of these devices has their unique strengths and weaknesses but one problem that is common to them is that there is no knitted relationship between the devices and parameters necessary for effective and efficient monitoring system. Therefore, there is the need to develop a system that will address this shortcoming. CATRAMS is an integration of computer and communication facilities to monitor and control movement of vehicles and goods. Its objectives are to provide detail information on movement of vehicles and reduce likely operational delays associated with movement of vehicles and goods. The development of the system was carried out by studying some existing devices to know their limitations, designing of road transport database, specifying hardware requirements and integrating the hardware and software resources to make a complete system. The system was tested using data collected from some manufacturing industries and it was found out that detail information about movement of vehicles and goods could be provided by the system.
