Managing a fleet is no easy task for the more than half a million freight carriers in the U.S. Add to that the accelerating pace of vehicle technology development and the current and impending regulations surrounding commercial trucking, and you have a landscape wrought with confusion, stress, and concern.

Enter SVT Fleet Solutions, a new fleet management company entering the market that is looking to innovate how the commercial trucking industry moves forward.

“Clean technology development has had a significant impact. As the world shifts towards sustainable practices and reducing carbon emissions, there is an increasing demand for eco-friendly solutions in various industries, including fleet management,” said Don Kelley, SVT’s president. “The development of clean technologies, such as electric vehicles (EVs), hybrid vehicles, and alternative fuel options, has provided new opportunities and challenges for large commercial fleets.”

Kelley, considered a pioneer of the fleet management industry, brings with him more than four decades of experience to his new role, as well as the backing of Velocity Vehicle Group, which owns the new company and serves as a valuable resource for SVT’s customers.

“Don Kelley’s background uniquely positions him to lead SVT Fleet Solutions through the challenges and opportunities presented by evolving vehicle technologies,” said Esther M. Santos, SVT’s head of business development. “His comprehensive understanding of industry dynamics, fleet maintenance practices, and the integration of emerging technologies will be instrumental in guiding SVT Fleet Solutions through industry changes and ensuring its success.”

The continual development of cleaner and more efficient vehicle technologies has prompted Kelley and his team to approach fleet management with a nuanced approach. This includes partnering with OEMs, charging infrastructure providers, and software companies specializing in clean transportation solutions; leveraging telematics and data analytics to optimize operations; and putting a greater emphasis on sustainability planning and reporting.

“Overall, clean technology development has driven innovation and spurred the adoption of more sustainable practices within SVT Fleet Solutions,” said Kelley. “It has enabled us to offer eco-friendly alternatives, optimize fleet operations, and align with the evolving environmental priorities of their clients and the industry as a whole.”

To further differentiate the newly founded fleet management company, SVT Fleet Solutions provides comprehensive solutions across all aspects of fleet management, going beyond individual services and delivering a single-source approach that focuses on efficiency, reducing costs, and maximizing fleet performance, while also delivering sustainability services.
