The Fleet Management industry has been an early adopter of IoT, and for good reason. Geolocation tools have been useful in helping any number of transportation-related businesses —ambulatory services, taxis, trucking and parcel delivery, to name a few – to gain greater efficiency by knowing exactly where their vehicles are at all times.
However, still technology is stagnant technology. That’s why forward-thinking fleet organizations are asking very pointed questions about expanding the use of IoT for fleet management to drive further efficiencies. As the adoption of 4G networks gains speed, richer, more complex applications are becoming increasingly common. Here are five IoT innovations that will help drive fleet management in the years to come:
There are so many ways IoT is advancing fleet management from a solely location-based solution to a 360-degree platform that offers a nuanced view of the operation. The next question is how can organizations implement these IoT applications quickly, securely, cost-effectively, and to scale? We’ll take a look at that in Part II.
