FleetMind Solutions, Inc., the technology leader for fleet management solutions, today announced its new trailer tracking solution to boost productivity and equipment utilization by providing information on the location of every tractor and trailer in the fleet.
"Fleet managers can now have total visibility into their tractors, drivers and loads at all times," said Martin Demers, CEO of FleetMind. "By installing identifier and reader devices in each trailer and cab, we can communicate detailed and accurate information to the back office system every time a trailer is connected or disconnected. Dispatchers will know the trailer's location, can ensure the right trailers are attached to the right vehicles, are able to track mileage for maintenance planning, and will have accurate and immediate information for customer service."
The FleetMind FleetMap module provides the trailer location information, which can be tracked in real-time when attached to a vehicle. The trailer tracking solution also stores the date, time and GPS position of all drop and hook activities. The trailer tracking module is integrated with the FleetMind onboard computer, and the tracking data is displayed through the FleetMap and reporting modules.
Key benefits include:
- 24/7 visibility into trailer location, status and security
- Improved fleet utilization
- Trailer temperature sensors
- Door sensors for unauthorized entry
- Tracking of up to 3 devices at once - 2 trailers and the dolly
- Mileage tracking for maintenance planning
- Tracking of trailer movements in the yard
- Automatic - no driver input required
