Spireon, the leading innovator of Mobile Resource Management (MRM) and Business Intelligence Solutions that connect companies to their mobile assets and workforces, has introduced FleetLocate Sync, a new feature in the integration of Spireon’s FleetLocate Asset & Trailer Intelligence and McLeod’s LoadMaster® enterprise transportation management software. FleetLocate Sync is the first solution that allows companies to sync their tractors and trailers virtually, providing real-time alerts if a tractor and trailer are separated unexpectedly.

With FleetLocate Sync:

  • Trucking companies can determine if a driver picks up the wrong trailer because an alert is generated if the correct trailer isn’t moving with the tractor. This allows the error to be corrected quickly
  • Customer service and satisfaction is improved because customers are provided more accurate and up-to-date information on the location of their load
  • Security for high-value loads is increased because fleet owners can check in with their drivers quickly if a trailer is separated from its tractor

“FleetLocate Sync allows an extra level of security and peace of mind for fleet owners,” says Roni Taylor, Spireon’s Vice President of Industry Relations. “With solutions that only provide trailer tracking, a user could tell a customer the location of a high-value load, but couldn’t confirm that it’s still with its tractor if stopped, or tethered to the appropriate tractor and driver. FleetLocate Sync removes that uncertainty, providing real-time alerts if a tractor is distanced from its trailer.”

The FleetLocate platform is a powerful, flexible and scalable Asset and Trailer Management solution, built on the NSpire platform and supporting a suite of devices and sensors. NSpire’s ultra-reliable, cloud-based environment allows FleetLocate to keep companies continually connected to their trailers and help them track their assets in real-time. It delivers an unprecedented level of raw data, translated and served up as rich analytics that can be used to make faster, smarter and more profitable business decisions. NSpire supports more than 5.7 billion data events every year and 1.9 million subscribers.

The two companies initially partnered in 2012 to integrate FleetLocate with McLeod dispatch systems, allows fleet managers to capture the most current GPS positioning information for any trailer in the fleet – tethered or untethered – allowing dispatch operators to make faster, smarter decisions. This latest enhancement syncs tractor with trailer for enhanced security.

“Security is becoming increasingly important to our customer base, especially those whose customers have high-value loads,” said Robin Hamlin, Project Manager for McLeod. “FleetLocate Sync brings security to a whole new level and we’re pleased to be growing the value for our customer base with this enhancement to the integrated solution.”
