Today, trucking fleets are perhaps the most connected transportation system, thanks to a long history of telematics applications used for mobile resource management.
A 2012 study by C.J. Driscoll & Associates concluded that there were approximately 5.5 million devices in use for managing vehicles, equipment and mobile workers. Sprint M2M Solutions estimates that 20 percent of all fleet vehicles are using telematics.
