Now standard on newly-leased dry vans and late model reefers from XTRA Lease at no charge is a basic trailer tracking service. The service enables users to view current and historical trailer locations, drill into dormancy and utilization information, and receive reports on the latest location and dormancy data.
“Trailer tracking has evolved into a critical fleet management tool, and transportation professionals now expect services like trailer tracking to help them improve equipment utilization,” said Bill Franz, XTRA Lease president and chief executive officer. “Our goal is to ensure that fleets have the necessary tools to monitor their rental and leased trailers’ operational performance, ensuring they receive maximum benefit from every rented and leased trailer.”
XTRA Lease continues to offer full service tracking with leases for a fee when fleet managers want additional monitoring and sensor capabilities. The company will also continue to offer basic trailer tracking on over-the-road dry van rentals at no charge.
