This industry leading telematics platform has been designed for both standard and temperature-controlled logistics.

Schmitz Cargobull sales executive Luke Hardeman said that the company is implementing revolutionary technology. 

“I don’t think there’s any other telematics provider capable of providing what TrailerConnect® can do.

“TrailerConnect® is an advanced telematics system that provides the logistics controller real-time data from the trailer,” said Hardeman. 

Examples of this data are GPS, Speed, EBS/ABS interventions, tyre pressure, tyre temperature and advanced fridge information if the trailer is fitted with a fridge.

“Giving the operator real-time data and alerts on their fleet greatly improves safety, efficiency, and smooth delivery of products throughout Australia. Any issues that arise can be handled quickly.

“Information is everything in the transport industry and what TrailerConnect® makes us is an industry leader,” said Hardeman. 

Schmitz Cargobull is to showcase this advancement in telematics at MEGATRANS to emphasise its commitment to supply chain efficiency and sustainability.
