Watch: Why you should buy in to trailer telematics now

Telematics are essential to being able to locate your trailers on a daily basis and understand if and how effectively they’re being used.

Trailers are the only assets in fleets that are routinely left behind at remote sites for days, weeks or even months at a time. If you aren’t currently plugged into your trailer data, the time to embrace telematics is now.

Telematics are essential to being able to locate your trailers on a daily basis and understand if and how effectively they’re being used. This data typically results in better communication with drivers, faster and more accurate customer communication and increased efficiency, so they can work on more proactive continuations to the organization. Trailer tracking is all about reducing the time that vital information takes to reach the people who need to know it. Whether it’s the driver or the fleet manager, delays can impact safety, customer satisfaction, and the company’s bottom line.
