The department of transportation and all of its different functional components can be very difficult to understand, especially in a large state like California. GovernmentFleet comes to us today to outline the new appointment of telematics provider Geotab to the contracting list for this state. Their main goals are to focus on and improve efficiency, streamline compliance guidelines and regulations as well as overhaul of the entire infrastructure to provide more quality data. It also hopes to move towards more electric options within the fleet vehicles available.
- Geotab, which provides connected transportation, has recently been awarded a single-source blanket agreement.
- The BPA agreement gives Geotab the right to afford telematics solutions to the state of California and participating government fleets.
- Geotab has already garnered renown in the telematics field, having recently been given the largest telematics contract in history from General Services Administration.
“The State of California has recently introduced several green initiatives targeted at improving fleet operations and reducing harmful environmental impacts. Its Sustainability Roadmap identified that a centralized telematics program is needed to help reduce fossil fuel usage, improve vehicle utilization, and reduce operating costs.”
