Trailer Tracking: Intelligent Asset Management

ORBCOMM's trailer tracking solutions provide the global visibility needed to allow fleet managers to optimise utilisation, avoid empty loads, prevent theft or misuse, improve preventive maintenance and more.

Fleet managers know they can’t afford to lose touch with trailers in transit or in the yard. Intelligent trailer tracking solutions reduce costs and improve trailer-to-tractor ratio while increasing capacity and visibility.

Complete Visibility and Efficiency

  • Increase utilisation and keep assets in rotation with accurate trailer tracking, utilisation reports and proactive maintenance.
  • Improve customer service and get more accurate ETAs for a better customer experience with geofences and watch box alerts.
  • Load management improves cargo security and avoids empty trips with trailer weight, door and fault code monitoring.

Mitigate Against Theft

  • Use geofences to track the location of trailer inventory.
  • Receive alerts when trailer doors open outside set parameters and use sensors to detect fuel theft.

Increase Trailer Utilisation

  • Avoid empty miles by identifying trailers that are lying idle.
  • Improve turnaround time by reviewing trailer loading time at different locations.
  • Maximise ROI by identifying trailer overcapacity.

Improve Preventive Maintenance

  • Increase efficiency by proactively scheduling preventative trailer maintenance.
  • Track miles driven and engine hours in real-time to monitor if a trailer is over/underutilised.

Avoid running overloaded trailers

  • Eliminate fines for overloaded trailers and manage overloads using EBS brake data.
  • Get real-time trailer weight data, drill down into load and unload events data.
  • Set maximum allowable vehicle weight settings to each asset and receive alerts to overweight events.
