The tracking technology in Foretrack TRAILER works with flatbed, drop-deck, or refrigerated trailers.
Tracking trailers can present some difficult technical challenges. Power is normally provided by the cab or tractor unit, so when trailers are disconnected and standing idle – the time when you need to know where they are most – no power is available for the tracking devices to use.
We have a number of different ways of addressing the power issue. Our devices have high capacity batteries and smart power management so they can operate autonomously for up to 6 months, recharging automatically when the trailer is hooked up to a cab or tractor unit.
Our solar powered units also have rechargeable batteries and use the sun to keep them topped up so they continue working indefinitely.
Tracking devices also need to be robust and waterproof, as they're typically installed externally. Our devices are small and IP-rated, so they can endure the harshest of conditions. Our solar powered units are even designed to fit within the corrugations of standard shipping containers.
Our analytics functionality can help you understand your utilisation, identifying trailers that are surplus to requirements or those that might be better deployed at a different depot.
Knowing where your trailers are helps with planning maintenance and inspections.
See when doors are opened and closed, and potentially identify criminal activity.
