Telematics Update: Expected growth for Fleet Operators as they Embrace Next-Gen Telematics Services

Share Article

Telematics Update’s Fleet & Asset Management Report has uncovered that FedEx will see an increase of nearly 30,000 units in service by May 2012. As the average truck uses $3,700 of fuel per idling, fleet managers need to make operational changes if they are to maximize profits from predicted growth in both existing and emerging markets.

Telematics Update has found the relationship between fleet operators and telematics service providers (who hold the key to cutting costs and maximizing efficiency) has become complicated by changing regulations, security issues and evolving technologies. This had resulted in an abundance of new telematics services and data . It is down to the telematics service provider to present this data in a fomat that can be easily interpreted by fleets so they can make operational changes.

Cyndi Brandt, Vice President of Marketing at Mobile Cast explains: “We know that people are really interested to find better ways to solve problems. The biggest trends that we see in our core markets are: how to I control more of my fuel spend, how do I really understand how drivers are driving the vehciles and what is the corresponding cost relative to how they’re driving? What we are seeing is, is that there is not one savior application, so what we are looking at is basically an ecosystem or slew of different entities that have come together to make this whole thing fly-to-drive adoption and build the business model.”
