Geotab launches HGV fleet management platform

Geotab has launched the Geotab Truck Solution for Europe, which is designed to help businesses increase their fleet’s productivity, optimise efficiency and improve driver safety and compliance with regulatory changes.

The new platform consists of the company’s flagship product, the Geotab GO device, plus complementary hardware and software designed to meet the needs of HGV fleet managers in Europe.

Providing access to near real-time vehicle and driver data, the solution offers insights into driver identification, automatic remote downloading, real-time tachograph status and infraction analysis, says Geotab.

It aims to eliminate the manual management of driver and vehicle tacho information and helps provide fleet managers with a single, unified view of their entire fleet.

“Building off our established and market leading position in the North American HGV market we are pleased to now cater to Europe, providing the flexibility, agility and security that telematics data and insight affords,” said David Savage, regional manager UK and Ireland for Geotab.

“As a core pillar of the commercial vehicle market, extending Geotab’s complete services to HGVs was the next logical step in our growth across the region. Our focus continues to be on driving maximum value for our customers out of their fleet management efforts”

Fleet managers are able to expand the Truck Solution’s functionality further with access to the Geotab Marketplace, a growing portfolio of mobile apps, software Add-Ins and hardware Add-Ons ranging from camera solutions, route planners, asset trackers and much more.

“Heavy goods vehicle fleets are the lifeblood of our economy,” continued Savage. “In these challenging times, comprehensive understanding of a fleet’s operations is vital for survival.

“With as much as a third of British small HGV fleets sitting idle at COVID’s peak and fears of a second wave, having the tools to confidently manage operations is a must. Telematics data provides the clarity, security and confidence needed to make key decisions when managing fleets, helping businesses remain agile, whatever the challenge.”

Fleet News Awards + Commercial Fleet Awards 2021

The Fleet News Awards is moving to a new date for 2021.

Traditionally held in March, next year the awards night moves to June 29 at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London. It will also for the first time incorporate the Commercial Fleet Awards to create an unparalleled celebration that honours and recognises excellence across every part of the fleet sector.

Stephen Briers, editor-in-chief of Fleet News, said: “With the industry in turmoil due to the coronavirus pandemic, we had a chance to reflect and review our awards proposition for 2021. While going virtual is an option, and one we are very excited about with our Fleet & Mobility Live show in November, we believe that an awards evening is also a networking evening and a chance to meet old friends and make new acquaintances in a relaxed environment.

“For many guests, it’s their industry highlight of the year. That’s why we decided to move the date to give us a better chance of being live at the Grosvenor House.”

Fleet News Awards 2021, incorporating Commercial Fleet Awards, will offer a unique opportunity to bring together the entire fleet sector to celebrate and honour the best people, companies and vehicles.

It is set to become the biggest and most important night in fleet. Further details about awards categories, judges and auditing will be released in January when Fleet News officially launches the Fleet News Awards 2021.
