Operators in the logistics industry can and should use the value-adding services of telematics to gain the upper hand on their competitors
(PRWEB) February 03, 2014
The report outlines the three main drivers of the of the commercial vehicle telematics market. Increasing fuel prices and strong price-competition in the logistics industry means that fleet operators are using telematics to gain a competitive advantage and maintain their profits. However, the initial cost of telematics hardware is impinging growth in the smaller fleets. Even the larger fleets, feeling the effects of the current weakened economic climate, may be reluctant to update any Fleet Management Systems they have in place. A second major growth hindrance stems from privacy concerns about sensitive company data being exposed. Taking both these positive and negative factors into account, Visiongain calculates the size of the Commercial Vehicle Telematics market will reach $11.2bn globally in 2014. In India, the majority of the telematics market is concentrated in commercial vehicles. Telematics solutions should be used to increase profitability and overtake competitors. During this tough economic climate, it is crucial to find telematics services which genuinely add value for the commercial vehicle market.
