American fleet and navigation company Rand McNally has acquired Australia-based Fleetsu and its fleet data collection and analysis platform in a bid to expand and enhance its offerings in the global fleet marketplace.
The transaction connects Rand McNally’s hardware, navigation, logistics, and publishing businesses with Fleetsu’s data and analytics capabilities to help fleet operators maximize business productivity through access to real-time, on-the-road data.
The connected platform will help solve such challenges as driver location and safety, engine performance, and vehicle efficiency.
Fleetsu founder Jakub Felinski joins Rand McNally as Chief Innovation Officer. Established in 2015, Fleetsu has secured a number of major global truck and automotive OEM contracts, including Toyota Motor Corporation, Australia.
“Rand McNally is committed to delivering innovative products and services that improve fleet and driver efficiency, safety, and security," said Aaron Dannenbring, CEO of Rand McNally. “Fleetsu takes our existing expertise to the next level as we now offer the industry's best connected fleet platform.”
According to Allied Market Research, the global fleet management market is experiencing unprecedented growth, particularly in telematics and connectivity. Forecasts predict the industry to more than double by 2030, reaching $52.5 billion in value.
