Schmitz Cargobull offers trailer telematics retrofit

Schmitz Cargobull UK and Ireland has launched a telematics retrofit programme that can bring its TrailerConnect system to any trailer from any manufacturer.

Until now, the TrailerConnect system – which offers real-time monitoring of temperature, tyre condition, trailer location and security – was only available on their Executive trailers.

It enables operators to transform their trucks into a fleet of ‘smart’ trailers, providing real-time transport data helping to both improve efficiency and reduce operating costs.

Fitment will be carried out at any one of Schmitz Cargobull’s specially trained Service Partners across the UK and Ireland. This retrofit will also apply to those operators already using the telematics system on selected assets, enabling them to expand it to the entirety of their fleet.

Simon Mols, sales manager – telematics and services for Schmitz Cargobull UK and Ireland, explained: “Many more commercial transport companies are now being led by people who have grown up with smartphones and real-time information at their fingertips.

“Our telematics system gives those managers that power and insight on their own fleet operations, so they can make smart decisions based on data from their smart trailers.”
