Read the highlights from this year’s Fleet LatAm Conference, hosted on April 22, 2021.

“Think global, act local” was a common theme at the Fleet LatAm Conference 2021. When developing Latin American (LatAM) vehicle and mobility policies, fleet managers need to do just that.


Thinking globally means being aware of the best-practices taking place in more mature markets around the world. Acting locally means being aware of regional practices and the local culture that needs to be considered in order to develop the best corporate policy possible.


The third edition of the Fleet LatAm Conference was a huge success and hosted more than 700 participants. At this year’s event, international and regional fleet and mobility managers were given the opportunity to discover best practices for LatAm fleets and see solutions that can help to stimulate their businesses.

Session highlights from the Fleet LatAm Conference 2021

The theme of this year’s conference was “How to empower fleet efficiencies and cost savings in LatAm.” Geotab took part in delivering this message through several key sessions. Here is an overview of Geotab’s featured sessions from the Fleet LatAm Conference 2021.

Powering fleet efficiency and TCO optimisation through data intelligence

Juan Cardona, Geotab’s VP Sales, Latin America, joined a panel discussion that focused on how to drive LatAm businesses forward. Topics included the importance of data in vehicle fleet management, specifically knowing where your vehicles and drivers are at all times. Thanks to developments in connected technology, it is now easier than ever to power fleet efficiency.


“The return on telematics is quite immediate, maybe about a month. Fleet managers could see 15 to 20% savings on their costs. With this, they can invest in other things for their employees.” – Juan Cardona, VP Sales, Latin America at Geotab

Awareness is growing in LatAm for connected technology. When it comes to efficiency, fleet managers need to have an internal vision and strategy that is supported by their stakeholders.


Telematics can unlock fleet efficiencies, especially when discussing fleet electrification and the adoption of alternative mobility solutions. At Geotab, we have seen that nearly all fleet managers have accomplished better fleet efficiencies and cost savings through the regionalization and internationalization of their fleet program.
