Unrivalled electric vehicle support
Geotab’s telematics platform helps last-mile delivery services plan for the future. As more EV fleet vehicles come on the market, Geotab continues to support them by pulling telematics data and vehicle information into your MyGeotab online platform for comparison. Manage state of charge and remaining capacity to recall vehicles and dispatch those with charge remaining to complete jobs.
Predict maintenance issues and keep vehicles on the road for longer
Geotab’s GPS trackers do more than show location. Pulling engine data and analysing trends lets you target fleet maintenance to the most heavily used pool vehicles or decode engine diagnostic information.
