The State of the Fleet Industry video series, produced by Automotive Fleet, offers insights into the state of the fleet market as presented by AF Editor Mike Antich.
In Episode 140, we have a wide-ranging discussion with Shlomo Crandus, CEO of Wheels, about the evolution and transformation of fleet management in the next five years.
🎙Today’s topics include:
- The industry disruptions experienced over the past three years will be the catalysts for innovation and transformation in fleet management, ultimately strengthening the industry.
- The goal in merging the three legacy companies – Wheels, Donlen, and LeasePlan USA – is to go beyond integration with a focus on transforming the overall Wheels business.
- A key focus is rethinking technology by expanding the use of artificial intelligence, machine learning, robotic process automation (RPA), augmented reality applications, and electrification. Wheels is generating one-and-a-half billion miles of EV driving data per year.
- In the next five years, downtime management will evolve into efficiency management, privacy protection will gain greater importance as vehicles generate increasing volumes of data, and there will be a convergence of technologies such as V2V communication, communicating with fleet management tech, vendor tech, and client tech.
