Noregon and Phillips Connect on their partnership, trailer health and data

Sandeep Kar of Noregon and Mark Wallin of Phillips Connect join On the Road to answer questions about the new partnership.

Companies integrating with one another has been an ongoing theme of the industry for a while now, as we’ve documented on this show before. One recent announcement stood out to us: a partnership between Phillips Connect and Noregon, aimed at integrating Connect1 trailer data into Noregon’s TripVision remote diagnostics system. 

The companies say this collaboration allows for the exchange of essential health data from Connect1, including specifics like location, odometer readings, brake diagnostics and overall health status of trailers into the TripVision interface. 

The companies said that their integration will lead to better information being provided to fleets on things like brake faults and trailer health. 

So what does this mean for fleets who use one or both of these services, and what do fleets need to know about trailer health more generally?

I sat down with Sandeep Kar of Noregon and Mark Wallin of Phillips Connect for the answers. Watch the video to see what they had to say.

Wheel bearings are an important part of the braking mechanism. The wheel bearings are, quite simply, what keep your wheels turning, and with minimal friction. They’re one of those unsung components - they don’t stand out the way something like an engine does, but they still have a role to play in uptime, vehicle performance and even fuel efficiency. Things like bearings, seals, hubs, hubcaps, and adjusting nuts all come together to form a unit that works to keep your trucks rolling. So while they may not seem like the most important component on the truck, they’re a vitally important one, meaning that you should do your best to minimize any maintenance issues.

Sheer data is no good to you on its own. You need to understand what you can do with it, and the ways in which it can help your fleet.
