The Evolution of Fleet Management Over Decades

If you are one of those people who has worked with transport and fleet management for a few decades already, this would probably sound nostalgic. For our younger colleagues, this post would likely be on a scale with a Discovery Channel program about the “older days”. The evolution of distribution network support through route and delivery optimization has been remarkable. Just a few decades ago, capabilities were so severely limited, yet fleet managers were still managing to do the job. And now we’ve moved to the telematics era – where, from the old-school point of view, possibilities are almost endless. Actually, this rapid transition has been so swift that some companies are still trying to catch up with the current technology and searching for that competitive edge.
