The future of telematics...what is it? | Utilimarc blog
Can electrification have a negative impact on fleet performance?

Even when the right vehicles for your fleet become available, there is still the question of whether they are truly the better option. Fleet managers must justify that EVs would perform at the same level as their current ICE models.

Managers spend over 70 percent of their time simply trying to consolidate their data into something comprehensible, leaving barely any time for drawing actionable insights from this data, in addition to carrying out all their other duties.

will EVs have a specific impact on the environment? | Utilimarc blog

Electric vehicles tend to be the go-to green solution due to their zero-emissions claims. It is worth questioning, however, just how environmentally friendly EVs are.

should we be worried about ev battery degradation

For EV drivers, the main concern from the day the vehicle is driven off the lot is battery degradation. A degraded battery suffers permanent damage that reduces the energy capacity of the battery and the amount of power it can deliver.

Should I use telematics to track EVs? | Utilimarc blog

he benefits of connecting a fleet with telematics are pretty much indisputable. With such a deep collection of vehicle and driving insights, managers can dig into data to identify waste reduction opportunities and optimize performance. However, as many switch to electric vehicles they are wondering, are telematics just as useful for EV fleets?

why should we care about greenhouse gasses? Utilimarc blog

Greenhouse gases trap heat in the atmosphere, keeping Earth at habitable temperatures. However, with GHGs at an all-time high due, this leads to out-of-control climate conditions that threaten life across the planet.

Why business intelligence is essential for managing your fleet?

Business intelligence seems to be one of those buzzwords that companies throw around when talking strategy and futureproofing solutions, but many find it hard to actually define. Is it a system? A service? A strategic approach? In some ways, it is all of the above.

Can your fleet be sustainable without electric vehicles?

With a major lack of electric vehicle options to replace medium- and heavy-duty ICE trucks, EVs are unfortunately not viable for many utility fleets yet. This doesn’t make ICEV fleets a lost cause for sustainable practice though.

Will temperature impact EV range?

Just as with any battery-operated item, there is an optimal operating temperature for EVs. Because of this, fleets operating in areas with extreme weather must keep this in mind during the peak of harsh winter and summer months.
