There are many businesses with fleets of vehicles at the core of their business model, like taxi companies, truck rental services, and pickup/delivery services, just to name a few. Any fleet manager should have a good understanding of what fleet telematics is and how it can benefit their business.
So let’s dive even deeper into answering your question: what is fleet telematics?

With that being said, fleet telematics is a nuanced science; there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all telematics solution. To reap the rewards of this technology, fleet managers must be educated on the different solutions available and have a sense of which features would be most useful to them.
