Geotab announced a new partnership with Free2move, the fleet, mobility, and connected data company of Stellantis. According to a March 10 release, Geotab will deliver the Integrated Solution for Stellantis brand vehicles, including Ram, Dodge, Jeep, and Chrysler.

The collaborative solution was announced at Work Truck Week 2022 and will use embedded telematics in Stellantis vehicles to enable easy integration of vehicle data from Free2move servers into the MyGeotab platform. Fleet managers will be able to access one unified telematics dashboard, generate reports, and measure key metrics to optimize fleet performance and improve mobility.

The embedded telematics device will provide fleet owners with Stellantis vehicles access to rich data insights and Geotab’s fleet management services in one platform, with no additional hardware or installation required, which can reduce costs and maximize uptime. The solution also offers access to the Geotab Marketplace, a portfolio of mobile apps, hardware add-ons, and software for Geotab customers to tailor their fleet management solutions even further.

“Geotab and Free2move share a common goal, to improve mobility and enhance fleet efficiency,” said Rob Minton, associate vice president of connected car development at Geotab. “As one of the top operating systems for connected fleets, the solution from Geotab, in collaboration with Free2move, will supply fleets with a telematics solution that is simple to activate, cost-effective, and will help fleet managers better manage their fleets.”

“Free2move is excited to partner with Geotab to provide enhanced fleet management through an embedded telematics solution,” said Benjamin Maillard, general manager, Free2move North America. “We are focused on innovation and improving mobility. With the new solution for Stellantis vehicles, we are delivering unique value by merging traditional fleet management with enhanced mobility solutions.”

Launching later this year, the solution will be compatible with eligible connected Stellantis brand vehicles, including select 2018 and newer models and all 2022 and newer models, through a basic or premium connectivity plan. The solution will be available starting in the U.S., with plans for global availability in the coming years.
