Tuesday, December 6, 2022

Though it has been around since 2010, vehicle telematics has moved to the forefront of the transportation industry, particularly during the pandemic. In fact, advancements in GPS tracking technology and telematics are continuing to evolve with paradigm shifts, improved efficiencies, and minimized costs—all while improving driver safety.

The outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic compelled the fleet industry to adopt vehicle telematics systems to monitor their fleets, lower asset theft and loss, and improve driver behavior. This truly demonstrates how technology can transform the future of fleet management. These systems are also making the management process more streamlined with the advent of the Internet of Things (IoT). With continuous developments in external sensors and embedded systems, it is crucial for decision-makers to capitalize on new trends in vehicle telematics to gain an edge. By utilizing fleet management systems, users can take control of critical business operations such as order and shipment management, compliance and mileage reporting, better routing, lower fuel consumption, and reduced CO2 emissions.

Vehicle telematics works by simply installing a device with a SIM card that allows remotely acquiring vehicle information like location, speed, tire pressure, and engine idle in real-time, faster and more accurately than ever before.

At this juncture, to help businesses align with the trends, we have developed this special edition on telematics solution providers. This special edition features the most innovative companies as a list of “Top 20 Telematics Solution Provides 2022.”
