In June 2010, we blogged about an up-and-coming technology: vehicle telematics. It seemed too good to be true; Automotive Fleet reported that it could help companies reduce their carbon footprint, including fuel savings of 10 percent. A study by Frost and Sullivan predicted that the growth of fleet telematics would reach $700 million by 2015.
So what kind of impact has this technology made on fleet maintenance and repair costs? Thanks to a recent article by Entrepreneur magazine, we now have a some new insight. Using fleet vehicle powerhouse UPS as a case study, the article cites a remarkable 50% cost reduction on preventative maintenance over
the last five years. The company also saw improvement in vehicle reliability and driver accountability.
Although UPS uses a sophisticated proprietary software, anyone can access similar off-the-shelf technology for a reasonable cost. Just like vehicle telematics, partnering with CLC is a smart choice that will save your company time and effort.
