Representatives from Volvo Trucks and General Motors will be heading to the Telematics for Fleet Management USA 2012 Conference and Exhibition in Atlanta this November to discuss how to reduce fuel expenditure in US fleets.

As the wireless carriers embed themselves within fleet services, automakers are in desperate need to restructure their fleet telematics offerings in line with the 4G LTE bandwidth. Added data such as driver behaviour and tyre pressure are being transferred over a 4G network.  This allows fleets managers to tap into multiple facets of data to increase fuel efficiency of fleet vehicles which, for large fleets, can equate to millions of dollars per annum and substantially lowered CO2 emissions.  

For vested stakeholders in the connected services for fleet management, the time to converge is now. New partnerships and shared learning will be the key to reducing fuel usage and carbon emissions of fleet vehicles across North America.  

The Telematics for Fleet Management Conference USA 2012 in Atlanta is the platform for the leading companies and key stakeholders to converge and discuss the economic and technological issues that affect fleet management services.  200+ attendees including representatives from Volvo Tucks, GE Capital, Clean Cities Atlanta, Five Star Foods, USDOT, CPAC Systems, Pioneer Natural Resources, Hertz and many others will be present to join these crucial discussions.

At the largest event to bring the entire fleet telematics ecosystem together, the latest strategies and business models that are set to re-shape the connected services for fleets will be developed. A world renowned collection of more than 30 expert speakers will gather to share their unique insights and best practices to steer this growing industry into 2013.  

Expert speakers from GM, USDOT, Telogis, Wright Express, Sprint, Donlen, CPAC Systems, Rogers Communications, GE Capital, Zurich and Liberty Mutual will discuss:
