Executive summary

Fleet management (FM) is an ambiguous term used in reference to a wide range of solutionsfor different vehicle-related applications. Berg Insight’s definition of a fleet managementsolution is a vehicle-based system that incorporates data logging, satellite positioning anddata communications to a backoffice application. The history of fleet management solutionsgoes back several decades. On-board vehicle computers first emerged in the 1980s and weresoon connected to various satellite and terrestrial wireless networks. Today, mobile networkscan provide ubiquitous online connectivity in many regions at a reasonable cost and mobilecomputing technology delivers very high performance, as well as excellent usability. All ofthese components combined enable the delivery of vehicle management, transportmanagement, driver management and mobile workforce management applications linkingvehicles and enterprise IT systems.

Commercial vehicle fleets play an essential role in the economy in the CIS and EasternEurope, where several countries are part of important Pan-European transport corridors. Thetotal of around 10 million heavy commercial vehicles in the region account for a major shareof the inland transports. Motor vehicles are for example involved in about 70 percent of thetotal inland transportation in Russia. In Europe, medium and heavy trucks account for over 75percent of all inland transports, forming a € 250 billion industry. Moreover, the greater part ofthe total 15 million light commercial vehicles in the CIS and Eastern Europe are used bymobile workers and for activities such as distribution of goods and parcels.

Berg Insight is of the opinion that the fleet management industry is in a long-term growthphase. Key drivers in Eastern Europe and the CIS include cost reductions related to fuelsavings and regulatory developments such as ERA-GLONASS and the Platon electronic tollcollection system which increase the awareness of telematics. The number of fleetmanagement systems in active use in the region is forecasted to grow at a compound annualgrowth rate of 13.5 percent from 4.8 million units at the end of 2016 to 9.1 million by 2021.

The penetration rate in the total population of non-privately owned commercial vehicles isestimated to increase from 14.2 percent in 2016 to 24.2 percent in 2021. The Russian marketaccounts for a significant share of the region’s total installed base and is forecasted to growfrom 2.1 million active FM units at the end of 2016 to 3.5 million units by 2021.The leading FM solution providers in terms of installed base in the CIS and Eastern Europeinclude diverse players from a number of countries. Belarus-based Gurtam is the leading FMsoftware provider, having surpassed the milestone of 500,000 vehicles under management inthe region. Arvento Mobile Systems from Turkey and TechnoKom based in Russia are the firstand second runners-up, followed by Turkish Mobiliz and the Russian players NIS (MTS),SCOUT and Navigator Group. Additional top-15 players include Russia-based Omnicommwhich has around 100,000 active FM units, as well as Infotech in Turkey, Fort Telecom andSpaceTeam in Russia, the European market leader TomTom Telematics, Princip in the CzechRepublic, the major truck OEM Scania and Secret Control which is based in Hungary. Withthe exception of TomTom Telematics and Scania, the major international solution providersbased in Western Europe, North America or South Africa are yet to reach the top-15 list forthis region.

The expectations for the future fleet management market in Eastern Europe and the CISinclude a gradual convergence with the developments in Western Europe. Eastern Europe isalready tracing the most developed European markets closely in terms of system functionalityand service models. The major Russian solution providers have historically mainly servedlarge corporations with standalone software systems which are paid upfront and hosted inhouse,whereas subscription services traditionally mainly have been adopted by SMBs. Cloudservices based on recurring service fees have however now become a greater focus also formajor enterprise fleets on the Russian market and the domestic FM solution providers areincreasingly pushing for a transition towards SaaS-based models. Another key trend on theEuropean market is factory-fitment of OEM telematics, which is offered by most of the majortruck manufacturers. The local manufacturers in Russia/CIS have however not yet fullyembraced this development and the OEM fleet telematics activities remain comparablylimited in the region. The local commercial vehicle manufacturers in the CIS market are alsoexpected to gradually introduce proprietary telematics systems including vehicle tracking,remote diagnostics and other fleet management functionality, driven by regulatorydevelopments and increasing competition from Western truck OEMs.
