Security trailer curtain launched by WABCO and Sioen Industries16 April 2020

Vehicle component supplier WABCO is fighting the issue of trailer cargo theft incidents with the Detector solution with Belgium-based Sioen Industries.

Sioen has upgraded its Dynatex Protector technology to produce a smart, multi-layered tarpaulin with conductive layers that can be fitted to trailer doors and sides. WABCO will power this technology via its advanced Fleet Management Solution (FMS), TX-Trailerguard. An alarm will be automatically triggered should the tarpaulin be tampered with. Drivers are alerted through an audible warning or an in-cab notification. An alarm is also sent to the fleet back office in real time through WABCO’s TX-Connect solution.

The new technology can also be combined with WABCO’s wireless electronic door lock, OptiLock.

Detector has been tested in the field by a number of fleets. Belgium-based Soncotra was the first to include the new technology within its trailer fleet that provides more than 15,000 full truck and groupage loads annually across Central and Eastern Europe, the Balkans, the CIS countries and the Middle East. Half of the fleet consists of box trailers.

“Our fleet is already equipped with WABCO’s telematics, so the addition of a reinforced and connected curtain-sider tarpaulin enables us to significantly increase the security we offer to our customers’ cargo,” states Isabelle Lamaire, CEO of Soncotra.
