Maintaining Owner Access to Vehicle Data: Keeping Innovation at the Heart of Transportation

Thursday, January 28, 2021

For businesses, vehicle data can be used to help drive your fleet forward and provide critical information on fleet performance. Vehicle owners should be aware of the policies surrounding vehicle data and how their data is being used. By engaging with telematics and the data insights offered from the technology, fleets are equipped to continue to innovate and find new ways to succeed.

Join TCA and Geotab for a complimentary webinar — Maintaining Owner Access to Vehicle Data: Keeping Innovation at the Heart of Transportation — set for 1 p.m. ET Thursday, January 28.

Geotab’s Stephen Woodring and Kevin de Sousa will share how your fleet can discover the ins and outs of vehicle data use and how it can help drive your fleet into the future.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • Vehicle data access policy issues are currently under consideration. Vehicle owners should better understand what access they currently have to their vehicle data and what potential new policies could mean for that data moving forward;
  • Vehicle data should remain in the hands of the vehicle owner with fair competitive access for carriers to maintain data safety; and
  • Commercial vehicle operators should engage OEMs and telematics providers to discuss data access rights and help maintain control over their own data.
