Trucking Telematics: Fleet Management Grows Up

August 20, 2001

The promise of low-cost wireless communications has captivated the transportation industry. While the automotive sector is the current battleground for telematics applications and technologies, the commercial transportation sector will ultimately gain the most from the widespread deployment of integrated high-end wireless information services, according to Vertical Wireless Associates. As hardware costs come down, the business case for integrated onboard electronics on commercial vehicles is becoming more compelling. Telematics in the trucking industry represents the convergence of the numerous first- and second-generation technologies and products currently in use, products ranging from automated fuel tax software and dash-mounted data capturing devices to integrated client-server dispatch systems and remote diagnostics applications. Market participants that can offer fleet owners a comprehensive migration path which allows fleets to incorporate new capabilities over time while protecting their existing investments will dominate. These market forces and opportunities are highlighted in a Vertical Wireless Associates report, Commercial Markets for Vehicle Telematics: Strategies for Growth. The report contains application descriptions, market data, statistics, profiles, and forecasts designed to assist participants in strategic marketing and business planning, and to provide readers with all of the information necessary to identify industry trends, buying criteria, market factors, and emerging opportunities.About Vertical Wireless AssociatesVertical Wireless Associates is a marketing and technology strategy company specializing in markets and applications for wireless data communications.For more information, e-mail [email protected].
