Utility fleet managers faced their share of challenges in recent years. They needed to respond quickly and effectively to emergency situations and rising customer expectations while keeping drivers feeling safe and supported. They also needed to maximize the utilization of vehicles while extending lifecycles and complying with regulations—even as they evolve faster than ever.
Like their counterparts in other industries, utility fleet managers are also wrestling with high fuel prices, driver shortages, tightened budgets, vehicle replacement lead times, and supply chain issues. As fleet managers shoulder more pressure, emerging technologies help alleviate these challenges and enable more digital transformation within the industry.
