Emerging trends in Australian fleet management

Fleet management in Australia is rapidly evolving in the face of technological innovation, and a challenging business environment. Right now, a few trends are emerging that will set the tone for the management of Australia’s fleets in the future. Let’s take a look at some of them:


Sustainability, and the urgent need to cut emissions, will see a big push towards electric vehicles that comply with environmental regulations, such as fuel efficiency standards. That’s going to reshape fleets. EV sales are on the rise in Australia, but so too are hybrid and plug-in hybrid sales as fleet managers and private buyers alike look to tackle the rising cost of fuel. An increasing number of Fleetcare customers are plugging into the savings offered by a novated lease on a Plug-In Hybrid Electric Vehicle.


Modern telematics working hand-in-glove with the Internet of Things is making fleet management more efficient. Fleetcare’s Fleetdynamics, for example, can monitor your vehicles at all times, cut your labour costs, and your fuel bill. And that’s just the start of it. Because it watches your vehicle’s health, Fleetdynamics reduces breakdowns and unscheduled maintenance costs as well.

Data privacy

With cybercrime on the rise data protection and privacy is increasingly important to minimise operational risks. Fleet management leaders, like Fleetcare, use robust security measures to safeguard their clients’ sensitive fleet data.

EV Infrastructure

One increasingly notable trend is the proliferation of EV charging stations to service the demands of a growing EV fleet. A recent story in The Guardian predicted a doubling of EV charging stations by the end of 2024. The rollout of such infrastructure is the next frontier in fleet electrification, and Fleetcare is keeping a close eye on developments.

Dispersed fleets

Covid disrupted everything, including our work patterns. With an increasing number of people working at least partly from home, your fleet may be here, there, or anywhere. Connecting a dispersed vehicle fleet will be a big focus for many fleet vehicle managers. With Fleetdynamics’ advanced telematics you’ll always know exactly where your fleet is, because you can see it right there on your computer monitor in real-time.


Fleet managers constantly challenge themselves to keep up with Australia’s rapidly changing mix of environmental, safety, and data protection regulations. Here at Fleetcare, we’re continually monitoring and adapting to this regulatory environment.

Autonomous vehicles

Finally, there’s the challenge of autonomous vehicles. While their development has been slower than expected, and their legal acceptance in Australia looks some way off, at Fleetcare we’re keeping a constant eye on their development.

The future of fleet management in Australia is characterised by technological advancement, sustainability imperatives, and evolving business models. At Fleetcare we’re embracing these trends and creating innovative solutions to help your business navigate the road ahead with confidence and success.
