Schmitz offers UK and Ireland smart trailer retrofits

Warrington, UK: Schmitz Cargobull UK and Ireland has a telematics retrofit programme that can turn any reefer into a ‘smart’ trailer.

Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect system – which offers real-time monitoring of temperature, tyre condition, trailer location and security – can now be easily retrofitted to any reefer from any manufacturer, after previously only being available on new Schmitz Cargobull Executive trailers. The system enables operators to transform their assets into a fleet of ‘smart’ trailers, providing them with real-time transport data that enables them to make intelligent decisions to improve efficiency and reduce operating costs.

Meanwhile, operators already using the company’s telematics system on selected assets can now expand its use to the entirety of their fleet.

Fitment can be carried out at any one of Schmitz Cargobull’s specially trained Service Partners across the UK and Ireland, who provide a complete installation and training package.

Simon Mols, sales manager – Telematics and Services, Schmitz Cargobull UK and Ireland, says: “Our telematics system gives complete visibility of everything that matters on your trailer during transport – and now it’s available for any asset, regardless of who was the original manufacturer.

“With our system, we provide real-time information on trailers, so you can monitor driver habits and optimise routing – and then use that data to help cut your operating costs.”

Schmitz Cargobull has expanded its telematics capabilities in anticipation of a new generation of senior managers focused on the latest technology.

Mols adds: “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.”
