How will fleet management change in the next 10-plus years? A common tool employed by many futurists is to extrapolate existing industry trends and project them forward into the future. However, my contention is if you want to know the future of fleet, you need to look outside the fleet industry. Historically, fleet has been an early adopter of new technologies and business practices. I believe it is important to watch how technology and business practices are evolving outside of fleet and ask yourself: How can these innovations be incorporated into fleet management? Ultimately, I foresee three transformational forces that will sweep through our industry and redirect its long-term direction.
