Great Dane’s Michael Molitor makes the FleetPulse announcement at NACV.

Great Dane announced the launch of its FleetPulse smart trailer telematics system. The OEM-built telematics solution offers built-in sensors that collect precise measurements directly from the trailer’s components, keeping watch over key indicators like tire inflation systems, open doors, cargo weight, burned-out lights, ABS fault codes, and actual mileage.

The data is collected and reported via a 4G platform, so fleets are alerted to potential issues and receive reports on what maintenance needs to occur and when.

“FleetPulse provides a high-resolution view into the conditions of the trailer’s components, and pairs that information with other proprietary information on the asset, including things like specs, aftermarket parts numbers, and tools from all of the component suppliers that help drive maintenance costs down,” said Mike Molitor, Great Dane’s Director of Business Development. “Each trailer on the road is unique in how it was built, and that information is critical when it comes to maintaining trailers – and it’s information that only the OEM has.”
