Market trend: impact of telematics on car rental industry
rental industry is one of the most intensive industries, based on
the number of vehicles. The industry is undergoing a change due to the
implementation of telematics in rental car companies. The trend started
in the US in 2015 and is expanding to Europe and Latin America, where
the big players are analyzing telematics as a driving force to improve
efficiency and productivity.
According to Sharan Raj, a lead analyst at Technavio for transportation
and distribution research, “Telematics offers a wide range of
optimization opportunities, achieving a positive ROI from the first
month of service. There will be a relevant change in the car rental
industry in the next five years due to telematics, thus increasing
competitiveness, especially among rental car companies that have decided
to embrace digitization through onboarding telematics.”
