Transportation and logistics could be the next billion-dollar business opportunity for companies across the globe. In fact, according to the World Bank, Boeing, and Golden Valley Co. the worldwide shipping market, which includes ocean, air, and truck freight, sits at $2.1 trillion. As a result, most companies, across the world, including in Africa are trying to get into the logistics and fleet management business.
It has been proven that Fleet Management helps companies get the most of their vehicles and their staff. Having a good fleet management system in place can help you monitor individual driving habits and also critical information about your vehicle status.
Managing a fleet is a challenge, to say the least, but the incorporation of the latest technology can make the entire process simple and very efficient. The tracking combines the use of automatic vehicle location in vehicles with software that collects these fleets’ data for a comprehensive picture of vehicle locations.
Technology has a huge role to play in the future of fleet management. From traditional petrol and diesel cars to GPS fleet management systems, there are so many options in the mix. These technologies are making it easy for goods to be tracked through the global chain, and this is having a massive impact in the sector. The potential value created by these asset-tracking technologies is enormous and companies can obtain a broad array of benefits from them.
According to the GM, companies in Kenya need to realize the accumulating benefits of using fleet management and vehicle tracking solutions.
‘’Through telematics, which combines a GPS system with on-board diagnostic it is possible to record and even map the location of your car and even how fast it’s traveling, and across reference on how a car is behaving internally,’’ she says.
Since its introduction 15 years ago, telematics has largely been viewed as a tool for monitoring where vehicles are and how long their different journeys have taken. Add communication over different networks and the technology can be used to send both data and communications back and forth between a vehicle and a central management system.
In October 2016, Safetrac Limited announced a new partnership with Arvento to distribute these products in the East African region. The products include fleet telematics systems, vehicle tracking, person and asset tracking as well as M2M solutions. The launch was a big boost to the logistics sector in Kenya, which accounts to about 8-9% of the country’s GDP.
“We basically monitor and assess the driving behavior of the driver via our onboard technology which enables us to provide a much more accurate rate and a very specific understanding of risk,”
She further says that the amount of information gathered from the devices installed in clients’ vehicles – time and location journeys, and driver behavior during those journeys means that they are able to help businesses make informed decisions about their businesses.
