In addition to tracking cars and light commercial vehicles, telematics technology is increasingly now being used to track heavy commercial vehicles. Despite the cost associated with it, companies are now beginning to realize the benefits that come with trailer tracking sensor technologies.
Real-time GPS Trailer Tracking gives truck owners the ability to know the location and routes of their drivers through a detailed digital map, which gives them satellite imagery and needed addresses. With online reports, vehicle owners can also be able to see the mileage of their vehicles and each stop and move the trailers makes.
The transmission of this data has been made possible, thanks to the advancement in communication networks and devices which have become more reliable over the past few years. This advancement has also made it more technically feasible and financially viable for companies to capture and transmit data in real-time to make their assets more visible and connected.
Previously, many truck owners would spend hours or even days on the phone trying to locate their trailers or just to get a rough idea of where they were on a particular journey. Now, with these technologies, they get the location almost instantly.
At Safetrac Limited, our Trailer Tracking sensor enables tracking and monitoring of information such as which tractor is attached or detached from which trailer. The sensor also monitors when the tractor is attached and detached as well as how much distance the trailer has traveled.
Once the trailer tracking sensor is installed on your trailer, it allows you to monitor the movement of all vehicles: where they are, where they were, when they began the journey, where they stopped and for how long and so on.
With Safetrac Limited, you can track all your vehicles 24 hours a day, with positions and sensor data received in real time. Moreover, Safetrac Limited has numerous add-ons that include a full set of alarms and reports, workforce management, cost management, fuel control, driver identification among many others.
