Buyer's Guide

by Justin Guinn,
Market Research Associate
Last Updated: October 13, 2017


Fleet management software is a collection of different applications used by distribution firms and logistics departments of manufacturing firms to:

  • Track overall fleet efficiency and fuel costs;
  • Assist with international fuel tax compliance;
  • Assist with route planning and optimization for multi-delivery routes;
  • Track and monitor driver behavior;
  • Keep tabs on fleet maintenance and vehicle health;
  • Dispatch drivers and schedule trips.

We created this guide to help buyers like you navigate the fleet software market and identify the best solution among the many available.

Here's what we'll cover:

Our Reviewers’ Choice list shows the five highest user-rated software solutions for Fleet Management when adjusted for total number of reviews and recency of reviews.

If a software solution has more reviews, and more recent reviews, we value those ratings more highly than a product with fewer, older reviews. This is because is it much harder to get 100 five-star reviews than it is to get 10.

We also know that software vendors continually tweak and update their product, so we believe that more recent reviews tend to be more accurate.

To determine which products made the final cut, we looked at how users rated each solution's:

  • Overall performance,
  • Ease of use, and
  • Customer support

A solution can make the Reviewers' Choice top five in all three categories, or just one or two. All software solutions in the Reviewers' Choice have at least 10 reviews from real software users. The final products are listed in alphabetical order from left to right.

For more details on how we selected our Reviewers' Choice, read the full methodology.

What Is Fleet Management Software?

Fleet management solutions help users track assets and inventory, optimize delivery routes and schedules and reduce risk factors associated with fleet management. Ultimately, this can lead to reduced operational costs.

In contrast to fleet maintenance software, which is focused on tracking the materials, parts and labor used for vehicle repair, management is a broader system meant to keep the overall fleet operating smoothly.

Common fleet software functionality includes:

Dispatch & scheduling Dispatch software is a core application in many fleet management solutions. It is used for tracking orders and deliveries and for managing and scheduling a fleet.
GPS tracking An integral feature in many systems, GPS tracking allows users to visually monitor where their vehicles are in real time.
Route planning and optimization Typically used by fleets with vehicles making multiple stops, route optimization functionality plans routes in the most efficient way possible, by determining the shortest and most fuel-efficient paths between each stop. May include fuel management modules to fully maximize fuel efficiency.
Rates and quotes management Allows long haul shippers to gather carrier rates and quotes and manage shipments.
Load optimization Helps carriers make the most of their cargo space, by taking the volume, weight and dimensions of what is being transported into account in order to determine the most efficient load that the vehicle can carry.
Fleet maintenance Helps manage and keep track of maintenance for vehicles. Schedules preventative maintenance and notifies users when maintenance should happen.

What Type of Buyer Are You?

There are many different types of buyers who seek fleet management systems—ranging from long haul shippers, to local delivery fleets, to healthcare transportation services, to heavy machinery movers and public services fleets (e.g., law enforcement, public transportation, city utilities or waste management).

Some types of buyers have unique needs based on the nature of their operations. A few common buyer types include:

Third-party logistics (3PL) firms. 3PLs oversee logistics operations—typically, everything from transportation to warehousing—for clients. 3PL firms are growing in popularity, according to industry reports, as more shippers are outsourcing their logistics operations to them. As such, these firms typically need full suites (bundled packages of related applications) of trucking, warehousing and inventory control applications.

For-hire carriers. Trucking companies that transport cargo for other businesses will likely want a suite that offers full functionality in operations and business management for the freight and logistics industry. Pay careful attention to the accounting and inventory control capabilities, especially if you deal largely in less-than-truckload (LTL) rather than truckload shipping. LTL specialists will also want strong scheduling and dispatch capabilities, and may wish to consider customer relationship management (CRM) software if they have a large customer base.

Private shipping fleets. If you represent the transportation wing of a company whose core business is something other than transportation, you’ll need a different type of solution than a for-hire carrier. You may wish to consider an enterprise suite that’s targeted less at trucking and dispatch and more at the company’s core business, yet still includes trucking management capabilities. If you do decide to focus on trucking management, make sure the inventory control and accounting functionality integrates with the company’s other systems.

Freight brokers and forwarders. Freight brokers are intermediaries that match shippers with carriers. As such, they require specialized suites of software that have strong scheduling, quote management and CRM capabilities (CRM will help organize customer databases). Freight forwarders are similar to freight brokers, except that forwarders take physical possession of shipments in order to make the most efficient use of the carriers’ cargo space. Therefore, they typically have similar needs to those of freight brokers, in addition to software that features load optimization, inventory and warehousing functionality.

Local delivery services. Local delivery fleets may transport anything from food to equipment to chemicals. Delivery vehicles see strong benefits from GPS tracking applications that allow the real-time tracking of vehicle locations. For fleets with vehicles that make many stops, route optimization is also a key functionality.

Car services. In the case of taxi, limo or car fleets, the client is the cargo. Dispatching and scheduling applications are key for these fleets, as are GPS tracking applications.

Market Trends to Understand

You should be familiar with the following market trends as you evaluate fleet management software products:

Environmentally friendly logistics. With environmental consciousness at an all-time high, consumers are starting to take notice of where their goods come from—and how they got there. Despite the substantial carbon footprint of the shipping industry, fuel-saving measures implemented in a fleet can add up. Routing software allows users to save fuel by determining the most efficient routes, and maintenance applications can ensure that a truck is well maintained, thus preventing fuel loss.

Business intelligence. More and more fleet management systems offer intelligent analytics that identify areas where money can be saved in a fleet’s operations, based on internal and external data and the company’s historical trends. For example, this data can optimize scheduling and dispatching operations, determine the most fuel-efficient routes and make the most effective use of cargo space. This trend is likely to continue as big data becomes even more prevalent—and valuable—in transportation industries.

Mobile devices. Mobile applications present a strong value proposition for fleet companies. They allow drivers to stay in constant communication, call ahead with estimated delivery times, upload delivery verification nearly instantaneously, provide dispatch notes and countless other benefits.
