Webfleet Solutions and Geotab, the global leaders in connected transportation, mobility and telematics, today announced the launch of the Commercial Mobility Recovery Dashboard.
The dashboard analyses data from more than 3 million connected vans and truck around the world to help visualize the impact of COVID-19 on commercial vehicle activity and support strategic recovery efforts.
By combining their data analytics, the two companies aim to offer a greater level of insight that can inform decision-making of businesses and governments as they negotiate their way out of the Covid-19 crisis
Examining commercial vehicle activity across Europe and North America, including the USA, Germany and the UK, the dashboard provides insight into the movement of commercial vehicles throughout the two continents.
The dashboard can be used to understand how specific industries have been impacted, such as construction, business services and transport logistics.
Commercial transport activity is measured weekly against pre-Covid-19 baseline levels to provide an indicator of the state of the industry.
According to the Commercial Mobility Recovery Dashboard, commercial vehicle activity in Europe dropped by as much as 36% since the beginning of the pandemic, whereas North American commercial vehicle activity only dropped by 20% at its lowest point.
Key insights include:
- Last week, excluding holidays, commercial vehicle activity in Europe (May 18 - 20) reached 86% of its normal activity levels while commercial vehicle activity in North America (May 19 - 22) was operating at 90%.
- Faster recovery rates in Europe, with commercial vehicle activity increasing more rapidly from its lowest point compared to North America.
- A steady increase in commercial vehicle activity in Europe, excluding weekends and holidays, with an increase of 4.6% in commercial vehicle activity as determined by examining activity levels from May 11-15 to May 18-20.
“As industries, businesses, countries and cities begin to explore and enact their post-COVID-19 strategies, commercial transportation activity can and should be used as a key indicator of economic health,” said Neil Cawse, CEO, Geotab.
“Together with Webfleet Solutions, we are uniquely positioned to leverage and analyze our data for the greater good and provide rich data analyses like never before for our collective customers and communities alike.
“This dashboard not only serves as a tool for COVID-19 recovery efforts but reflects the power of connected vehicle data as an essential tool to support unified, global recovery efforts across oceans, borders and industries.”
Beginning next week, the dashboard will continue to provide weekly updates on the state of commercial transportation activity across both Europe and North America for the foreseeable future.
