For fleet operations, the availability of dependable data sources for decision-making is essential. This data is crucial for meeting sustainability goals and ESG reporting requirements. Moreover, a survey conducted by Geotab among fleet managers reveals that 73% of respondents rely on fleet management solutions and telematics data to monitor and enhance fleet sustainability. Yet, only 24% utilize telematics data to facilitate regulatory reporting. Against the backdrop of mounting regulatory and public pressure for accelerated carbon reduction, harnessing data insights for decision making has become even more critical. Measuring success is also essential in this context.
