Driven By Data
Managing Fleet Information Overload
The average modern car already has over 200 connected data points. What’s more, by 2020, experts predict nearly every new car will be fitted with sensors to measure emissions, tyre pressure, humidity, viscosity of engine oil, car position, air humidity, speed and much more. Indeed, by then, a single vehicle will generate an extraordinary four terabytes of information every day.
For car, truck and van fleet managers, this data revolution is unlocking a range of valuable business insights. But analysing those insights and using them to improve operating efficiency, boost productivity and make better, more informed fleet management decisions requires a new generation of technology solutions, skills and responsibilities. From fleet telematics and gps tracking systems, to predictive maintenance and the use of blockchain in logistics, it is imperative that fleet managers embrace data and adopt new ways of working across their role.
Yet how prepared do you feel to both incorporate a wealth of new data into your existing fleet management systems and process it effectively to thrive in this new era of connected vehicles? Shell Fleet Solutions has analysed some of the key trends and technologies driving the industry into a data led future, while outlining some of the practical steps fleet operators can take today to set themselves up for success tomorrow.
