One effective strategy private fleets continue to employ to help improve their productivity is the deployment of on-board technology — combined with better data aggregation and analysis — to track and improve various elements of their performance. Fleets have been steadily adopting such technology and this year, every fleet that answered the question in NPTC's annual member survey reported adopting the technology. This is in line with the near universal penetration of on-board technology achieved in each of the last seven years. To put that number in perspective, in 2005, the penetration of on-board technology was reported at less than 50%. On-board technology provides data that can lead to more effective methods to understand, communicate, and improve value, performance and safety. The challenge and frustration expressed on the part of the fleets is to detangle the massive amounts of data and convert it into actionable intelligence. In fact, 29% of the respondents reported employing data analysts or information technology experts.
