Gist adds Schmitz telematics

Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK: Gist has retrofitted 120 reefers with Schmitz Cargobull’s TrailerConnect telematics turning each one into a ‘smart’ trailer so the operator can proactively monitor its performance on the road.
 
Gist already operates 54 Schmitz Cargobull units factory-fitted with the system and upgraded the rest of the fleet with TrailerConnect to extend the depth of data delivered by the smart trailers.
 
Gist now remotely monitors the internal temperature, tyre condition and door security of all its refrigerated trailers from a single dashboard – using the information to make planning decisions that reduce running costs and maximise fleet uptime.
 
Sam de Beaux, engineering director, Gist, says: “We’ve had impressive results from our existing smart trailers, which have been more cost-effective to run and easier to maintain. Schmitz Cargobull’s telematics retrofit service means we can enjoy those benefits across the whole of our fleet; it was not a difficult decision to upgrade our existing assets.”
 
TrailerConnect can be easily retrofitted to reefers from any manufacturer. Schmitz Cargobull launched its retrofit programme in 2018.
 
All fitments on Gist’s trailers were carried out by Schmitz Cargobull’s Service Partners, including Crusely Trailer Engineering in Grays.
