Webfleet has launched a trailer management solution designed to support transport and logistics companies with trailer fleets operating long haul.

Webfleet Trailer is a monitoring and reporting tool integrated into the Webfleet telematics platform, giving fleet operators a one-platform-solution for their fleet vehicles and trailers. It is said to connect to all leading Electronic Braking Systems (EBS).

The solution helps to improve safety and security by monitoring the trailer’s health via EBS connectivity to trailer fault systems, such as braking and stability. With real-time visibility of load data, it also helps fleet managers with compliance for permissible cargo weight and reduces the rollover risk from overloading.

According to Webfleet, fleet operators can improve trailer utilisation and limit empty runs via actionable insights, such as load status.

Webfleet Trailer is also said to reduce the risk of breakdowns and disruption to schedules by detecting tyre issues early. Tyre pressure monitoring system equipped trailers have access to live and historical data with notifications of abnormal tyre pressure or temperature. Collecting tyre pressure information can help extend tyre life, improving fuel consumption and limiting carbon dioxide emissions.

By flagging trailer malfunctions and maintenance tasks, the trailer solution is expected to help businesses save costs through downtime reduction.

Taco van der Leij, vice president of Webfleet Europe at Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, said: “With Webfleet Trailer, we are offering a proactive monitoring and reporting tool that goes way beyond 'track and trace’”.

“Trailers are the backbone of long-haul goods transportation but managing a trailer fleet can be challenging. By providing a one-platform-solution for all a transport fleet’s vehicles and trailers, with real-time data insights and actionable intelligence, we are supporting these businesses in their quest to maximise trailer performance, save costs and improve safety and security.”

Webfleet Trailer is available across the following European regions, DACH, UKI, Benelux, Spain, France, Italy, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Hungary, Portugal, Czech Republic and Poland.
