Municipal fleet management utilizes IoT-enabled sensors to track, monitor, and manage municipal fleets to increase operational efficiency, optimize maintenance schedules, lower insurance premiums, and ensure the safety of drivers.
As many municipal fleets begin the transition to more fuel-efficient or even electric vehicles, fleet managers seek other ways to lower the cost of maintaining the thousands of vehicles maintaining our cities. One of the most promising methods is implementing a fleet management system. And municipal fleets are not alone – the global smart fleet management market is projected to top $565 billion by 2025.
Fleet management solutions can improve gas efficiency by more than 30 percent; optimize the schedule for preventative maintenance, allowing for the improved performance of vehicles; and improve driver safety, reducing liability and repair costs.
Fleet management solutions work by monitoring gas levels and usage, tracking driver behaviors for risky driving or fatigue, monitoring the location of vehicles, and monitoring overall vehicle performance.
Key Benefits of IoT-Enabled Municipal Fleet Management
- Increase operational efficiency by optimizing routes and automating dispatch.
- Enhance productivity and safety by monitoring and tracking unsafe driver behavior, such as sudden braking or accelerating.
- Monitor vehicle efficiency and perform proactive maintenance to prevent unnecessary vehicle downtime or losses in efficiency.
