Belgium: WABCO Holdings’ TrailerGUARD telematics system with remote diagnostics technology for trailer fleet management has won the 2012 Telematics Award for logistics and transport. It was awarded at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2012, an industry tradeshow.
TrailerGUARD’s new remote diagnostics function comprises a trailer’s electronic braking and air suspension control system. It enables remote diagnosis by offering information about the trailer’s technical status in real-time. TrailerGUARD telematics also enables fleet managers to remotely monitor the vehicle’s various operating data such as brake wear, mileage, axle load, tire pressure, temperature inside a refrigerated trailer and door status, among other operating functions. TrailerGUARD telematics is part of WABCO’s Intelligent Trailer Program, a suite of applications for safer, more efficient and more innovative operation of all types of trailers.
Nick Rens, WABCO Vice President, Trailer Systems and Aftermarket, said: “We are proud to be honored with the 2012 Telematics Award. It recognizes that WABCO’s TrailerGUARD sets the transport industry’s standard to further optimize utilization of trailer fleets and to reduce operating costs. Powered by our passion for innovation, WABCO continues to help transport professionals to increase vehicle safety and efficiency while also enabling them to assess their current assets and future investments.”
