The use of Fleet Management systems is now indispensable for an intelligent, automatic management of transport; safety, of course, represents the central issue but advantages also arise from improved efficiency of logistics and transport processes. It represents a long-term strategy in comparison to on the fly solutions. Not only anti-theft systems for the safety of drivers, vehicles and goods, but also real-time information about driving style, fuel consumption, cold chain or tachograph management, up to advanced waste management systems in the field of waste collection and disposal. Moreover, it enables the monitoring of fleet vehicles’ daily activities, both in long-haul and regional, extra-urban and urban routes, up until the ‘fateful’ last mile of distribution. Information that runs from on board devices to the Operations Centre to be, then, interconnected to the company’s management system.
