TrailerLinc – The smartest way to focus on your trailers
Where are your trailers right now?
Imagine: Total trailer visibility. For uncoupled and coupled trailers. Wherever they are.
TrailerLinc is a smart system that puts you in control. It tracks the location and utilization of all your trailers in real time, whether being pulled by your own or a subcontractor’s truck, carried by a ferry or train, or left uncoupled. Even rented trailers equipped with TrailerLinc can be monitored and managed.
Here are just some of the ways TrailerLinc benefits your business:
- Cuts down the risk of trailer or cargo theft
- Sends automatic notifications to customers on your delivery status
- Ensures cargoes are heading to the right destination
- Improves trailer productivity, increases utilization, and uses assets more efficiently.
Smart stand-alone system
TrailerLinc brings smart features only previously found on expensive systems. It sends position reports at regular intervals and, being linked to Astrata’s FleetVisor web portal with possible TMS integration, allows you to track speed and direction on screen in real time. For trucks that already use an Astrata TruckLinc Black Box or driver’s smartphone app (AppLinc), TrailerLinc also communicates within FleetVisor to automatically match a trailer to a truck.
With its internal battery, this simple, robust and reliable stand-alone system works all the time, not just when connected to a truck. The GPS and cellular signals maintain full trailer visibility at all times too – even with only GPRS coverage.
TrailerLinc was designed specifically for trailers. The inconspicuous box, which is IP 69K rated, is extremely rugged and withstands high pressure steam cleaners. It is also very easy to install. There are no expensive sensors or wired connections between truck and trailer. All it needs is a power feed now and then to top up the high capacity battery.
TrailerLinc is built to the exact requirements of fleet owners and operators and designed to for easy integration by our professional partners. Selected integration partners can even implement additional features like EBS data download for predictive maintenance, and refrigerated trailer temperature control for transporting cargoes like fresh food and sensitive pharmaceutical products.
