TX-TRAILERGUARD, the next-generation Fleet Management Solution (FMS) of Transics International, a WABCO company and full solution provider for truck, driver, trailer, cargo and subcontractor management, is now available on the market. For the first time, TX-TRAILERGUARD, enables a real-time monitoring of the trailer showing all relevant information in addition to truck- and driver-related data, generated by the truck’s on-board computer, onto a single screen on the fleet manager’s desk.
With TX-TRAILERGUARD, trailer-related data such as axle load, tire pressure, temperature inside a refrigerated trailer and door status among other operating functions can be transferred to the back office, where they are fully integrated into TX-CONNECT, Transics’ back office software. Thus, unlike common individual applications, it bundles all relevant information on the performance of the whole truck, trailer and driver in real time onto a single screen.
Thereby, fleet managers can identify potential issues such as recurring overload, structural underutilization and inappropriate driving behavior. Thanks to management reports which give a clear overview of the vehicle performance, they can help to optimize planning and capacity investments. In addition, when the truck is equipped with Transics on-board computers, dispatchers can instantly provide technical and administrative feedback to the driver – for example on next orders or potential hazards such as underinflated tires. Fleet managers may provide guidance and assistance to drivers on the road, thereby enhancing the vehicle’s safety, improving customer service and reducing downtimes as well as maintenance costs.
Didier Nulens, Global Sales, Services & Marketing Leader, at Transics: “Fleet Management Solutions are not only about the vehicle, it’s all about providing information and connectivity. The real challenge lies in providing all relevant information with one solution in one portal. With TX-TRAILERGUARD, we successfully managed exactly this challenge.”
The first customers such as the Dutch transport company Keus & Mollink, who recently equipped their entire fleet with TX-TRAILERGUARD, already benefit from this new solution.
“As a transport company specialized in livestock, Keus & Mollink has to fulfill several legal obligations”, comments Didier Nulens. “Therefore, they need a system that does not only enable real-time monitoring of their entire fleet but also allows the company to provide required data to regulatory bodies. With the installation of TX-TRAILERGUARD, Keus & Mollink now obtains valuable information on truck, driver and trailer which can all be easily requested from one and the same back office platform within a few clicks.”
Via Transics’ on-board computers, the drivers also have direct access to relevant data such as the actual temperature in the trailer and thus can respond quickly when needed. The Transics solution provides Keus & Mollink with a direct link between trucks, drivers and its home office.
Gert Aman, dispatcher at Keus & Mollink: “We were searching for a better and more reliable technology to improve our trailer management system. Thanks to the upgrade of our fleets with TX-TRAILERGUARD, we now have a complete fleet management solution which also fully integrates into our existing planning software. TX-TRAILERGUARD enhances both our daily operations and productivity.”
