In the last week of May and the first few days of June, company fleet cars recorded an average of approximately eight million kilometres travelled per day, which compares to pre-lockdown figures of around 10 million kilometres travelled.

At its lowest point at the end of March, fleet usage dropped to just 2 million kilometres per day, Targa Telematics pointed out.

However, short-term rental fleets – which typically serve tourists in Italy – is still at a standstill with only 700,000 kilometres travelled per day in the last week against 1.6 million in February before the emergency started.

Nicola De Mattia, Targa Telematics CEO said, “Mobility is precisely one of the pillars on which we will build the restart of our economic and productive system, hoping for a highly opportune intervention in favour of the sector by the government, as has already happened in all major European countries”

Targa Telematics monitors more than 500 thousand assets belonging to long-term and short-term rental fleets.
