With the price of fuel at a record high of 1.65 EUR/litre for petrol and 1.73 EUR/litre for diesel (Telematics Update Fleet & Asset Management Report), fleet companies are increasingly demanding strategies to help them reduce operating costs. Supply chain improvements are beneficial, but it is with automotive telematics within this space - analysing and acting upon driver and vehicle data - whereby the end user sees real savings quickly.
“Despite rising fuel costs, cargo transport in Europe is expected to double within 15 years. The development of mega cities and regions will create mega corridors which will catalyse the demand for LCVs, MCVs and HGVs”, says Precksha Sacksena-Sood, Managing Director of Telematics Update. Thus, the uptake of telematics in this booming market means existing service providers have even more to gain from this future growth, not just in Europe but on a global scale.
