Latin America Learning About Fleet Management

Accord­ing to Tele­fon­i­ca, the Latin Amer­i­can mar­ket is evolv­ing from secu­ri­ty-focused telem­at­ics to opti­miza­tion-focused telem­at­ics.

It points out that fleet man­age­ment is cru­cial to reduce fleet oper­a­tional costs and improve com­pa­ny rev­enue thanks to pro­duc­tiv­i­ty improve­ment. And it points to areas such as cost reduc­tion through fuel reduc­tion, few­er acci­dents and min­i­miz­ing idling time among oth­ers.

Because man­agers have more infor­ma­tion about how their dri­vers are using vehi­cles, Tele­fon­i­ca says, abus­es and mis­us­es that deeply impacts oper­a­tional costs can be erad­i­cat­ed. In fuel reduc­tion alone, com­pa­nies aver­age 15–25% sav­ings.

Tele­fon­i­ca also says that good fleet man­age­ment means that vehi­cle routes can be opti­mized and more cus­tomers vis­it­ed with the same vehi­cles, increas­ing as a side effect cus­tomer sat­is­fac­tion. Fleet dri­vers are less prone to overus­ing their vehi­cles when prop­er­ly man­aged so pro­duc­tiv­i­ty soars as well.

Final­ly, and by way of expla­na­tion of why this mes­sage – wide­ly accept­ed and under­stood in the mature mar­kets of the world – is being trans­mit­ted now, Tele­fon­i­ca say that the fleet man­age­ment mar­ket is grow­ing strong­ly – not only in the Latin Amer­i­can mar­ket, also in Europe and the US – but due to the Latin Amer­i­can mar­ket still being very young the growth rate remains stronger than the rest.
