The latest arrivals replace older Schmitz Cargobull trailers in the operator’s 25-strong trailer fleet, most of which are built by the German manufacturer.
TrailerConnect provides real-time location and component condition monitoring via a web portal or mobile app.
The system alerts operators when maintenance may be required, and helps to protect the payload by sending security warnings to the driver and fleet manager by SMS or email if unauthorised activity is detected.
Martin Kelly, the haulier’s managing director, says: “TrailerConnect will help us make informed fleet maintenance decisions and maximise our uptime. And by tracking our trailers in real time, we’re also able to keep our customers updated on delivery progress and security, which gives them complete peace of mind.”
As well as the telematics system, the trailers are equipped with a Joloda walking floor, and a sliding roof which can be raised on one or both sides.
The trailers are supplied on an Executive Plus package, which includes a five-year, full-service maintenance contract.
