MiX Telematics announces European industry study results

Published:  15 January, 2016

A study into present and future telematics trends in the commercial vehicle industry has been conducted by Mix Telematics across four key European markets; UK, France, Germany and Spain.

The study shows that as the markets continue to mature, operators are progressively seeking new and innovative ways in which to maximise the return on their investments in telematics.

The Mix Telematics European study highlighted a number of areas of interest:

  • Temperature management (cold chain)
  • Stolen vehicle recovery – consumer and commercial
  • Construction
  • Fuel theft
  • Waste management and recycling

Marketing and operations director Steve Coffin said: ‘This study clearly demonstrates that telematics has the power to satisfy a wide range of operational needs over and above what might be described as traditional fleet management solutions.

'With the benefits of telematics now firmly established and accepted by Europe's transport operators, we see the focus gradually shifting to include new applications.

‘Looking ahead, the partnership approach we have adopted will have a large part to play here in terms of helping share and spread knowledge throughout the industry.

‘It is no longer enough for telematics providers to simply sell products; the way forward is in forging ongoing partnerships to ensure the full range of benefits telematics is realised.'
