Executive summary
Fleet management (FM) is an ambiguous term used in reference to a wide range of solutions for different vehicle-related applications. Berg Insight’s definition of a fleet management solution is a vehicle-based system that incorporates data logging, satellite positioning and data communication to a backoffice application. The history of fleet management solutions goes back several decades. On-board vehicle computers first emerged in the 1980s and were soon connected to various satellite and terrestrial wireless networks. Today, mobile networks can provide ubiquitous online connectivity in many regions at a reasonable cost and mobile computing technology delivers very high performance, as well as excellent usability. All of these components combined enable the delivery of vehicle management, transport management, driver management and mobile workforce management applications linking vehicles and enterprise IT systems.

Commercial vehicle fleets play an essential role in the economy both in North and Latin America. In North America, there are approximately 13.3 million GVW 3–8 commercial
vehicles in use. Around 18 million lighter vehicles including GVW 1–2 vehicles and cars with no GVW are also owned by enterprises or public entities. In Latin America, the number of commercial vehicles in operation is estimated to 24.3 million, out of which 5.5 million are heavy trucks and 18.8 million are light commercial vehicles. Berg Insight is of the opinion that the market for fleet management in the Americas is in a growth period which will continue in the years to come. The advanced North American market will remain on a growth track, not the least driven by regulatory developments such as CSA and the forthcoming ELD/EOBR mandate. Latin America has traditionally presented a very different scenario, often requiring an educational process in order to extend the perception of fleet management beyond security-related aspects. The Latin American fleet owners have however also started to embrace functionality for optimisation of fleet operations to an increasing extent.
