Construction industry insights: Why fleet technology is one of the best allies for the sector

By Verizon Connect Team September 22, 2022

The construction industry is one of the most important sectors in the EU economy and "is of strategic importance for the European Union, being a pillar for both the economy and society.”

For starters, it generates almost 9% of gross domestic product (GDP) in the European Union and provides 18 million direct jobs, having a direct impact on the safety of persons and on the quality of life”.

Also, construction is one of the top 5 sectors that uses GPS fleet tracking technology in their daily business with 79% of European companies we surveyed in the construction industry using GPS tracking technology in 2021.

Further to this, in the "Fleet Trends Report Europe: Construction Industry Insights" conducted for Verizon Connect by ABI Research, we highlight how fleet management is key to helping deliver results and building resilience for all the key industries.

Here are some of the main findings relating to the construction industry:

  • 61% of survey respondents reported improved customer service since they implemented a fleet tracking solution.
  • 51% of improved productivity. 
  • 49% lowered their fuel costs.
  • 37% reduced accidents and 18% lowered labour costs. 
  • For smart technologies, like in-cab video the benefits go far beyond expectations. 53% of video solution adopters have reduced accident costs and 44% have lowered insurance costs.
