US Government connects 217,000 vehicles through Geotab

Geotab, a global leader in IoT and connected transportation, has been awarded the largest single-source telematics contract to date by GSA Fleet, a division of the General Services Administration, which provides centralized procurement for U.S. federal agencies.

With one of the largest non-tactical fleets in America, GSA Fleet will equip its 217,000 vehicles with Geotab’s trusted fleet management technology.

Since 1954, GSA Fleet has been providing quality vehicles and efficient and economical fleet management services to over 75 participating federal agencies. Its end-to-end fleet management services include vehicle acquisition, leasing and disposal, as well as maintenance control, accident management and fuel and loss prevention services.

Paving the public way

“With GSA paving the way, we believe the U.S. government leads the world in the adoption of telematics in the public sector,” stated Geotab CEO, Neil Cawse. “Particularly within local, state and federal agencies where fleet vehicles typically account for a large portion of their annual budget, our intelligent integrated solutions have the potential to protect capital assets, reduce associated risk, improve accountability and decrease operating costs.”

As a vertically integrated telematics provider Geotab manages the entire technology stack, from the in-cab hardware and embedded firmware used to encrypt and transmit data, to the secure server-side hosting and software applications.

Geotab is one of the first telematics companies to achieve FIPS 140-2 validation for its cryptographic library. As part of this award, Geotab has also received a GSA sponsorship for FedRAMP certification, which will position MyGeotab as the first SaaS telematics platform to achieve this prestigious cybersecurity accreditation.
