IS 400

Tractor Identification Sensor

Improve driver retention, streamline operations and improve customer satisfaction with real-time tractor-trailer coupling

The IS 400 tractor ID sensor puts valuable time back in the hands of your drivers. No more searching the yard for the right trailer, only to connect the wrong one, leave the yard and not find out until the driver arrives at their destination. When the trailer is connected, instead of having to check with the driver, the back office can validate the pairing automatically.

Improve Customer Satisfaction
Help ensure customers get their cargo, when and where they expect it.

Streamline Training
Simplify the pairing process in the yard and free up time to train drivers on more important issues such as safety and compliance.

Reduce Trailer Detention and Downtime
Identify exactly when a trailer is paired or unpaired, so drivers can get back on the road and transport more cargo.

Integrated with ORBCOMM’s GT 1200 series trailer tracking devices and part of a comprehensive, nose-to-tail smart truck and trailer solution, the IS 400 uses intelligent Bluetooth filtering technology to pair with the correct trailer every time.
