How Webfleet Trailer works

Webfleet trailer tracking system

LINK 350 connects directly to the trailer’s EBS system and collects trailer load, braking and trailer system data.

Data is then transferred to Webfleet where fleet managers and drivers receive trailer monitoring and reporting insights.

LINK 350 device relays the trailer’s EBS and TPMS data to the Webfleet platform.

Tyre pressure and temperature data is collected from strap mounted sensors and sent to the LINK 350’s embedded TPMS receiver. Data is then transferred to the Webfleet platform.

All you need to know about trailer tracking

What is trailer tracking?

Jump to content

With trailer tracking, fleet operators gain insights on the location and status of every single trailer in their fleet. This information helps fleets calculate the optimal number of trailers, reducing unnecessary investment. Trailer tracking also simplifies the management of trailer utilisation, maintenance and safety.

What is a trailer tracking device?

Jump to content

A trailer tracking device is essentially a GPS device for trailers. By attaching these GPS devices to trailers, fleet operators can always know the locations of their assets, not to mention the avail­ab­ility and roadwor­thiness of the trailers. The trailer trackers used by Webfleet customers are designed for the toughest of weather and road conditions.

How does trailer tracking work?

Jump to content

A trailer tracking system gives fleet managers visibility on every trailer in their fleet. The system uses GPS trackers to locate trailers, whether they’re on the road or parked at a customer’s business. The tracking system also sends alerts about overloading and issues with braking, helping prevent road incidents.

Who can use trailer tracking?

Jump to content

Trailer tracking is ideal for HGV fleets that rely on trailers to deliver goods. With features like automated coupling status, fleet operators can always identify which trailers are connected to vehicles. Trip details drawn from GPS provide data such as speed and position, so trailer tracking can occur in real time.

Why is trailer tracking important?

Jump to content

Trailer tracking is important for a few reasons. For one, it enables fleets to cut costs and boost productivity by optimising trailer and tyre maintenance. With trailer tyres kept at appropriate pressure levels, fleets can maximise their fuel efficiency while limiting CO2 emissions.

What are the benefits of trailer tracking?

Jump to content

A trailer tracking system helps fleets improve utilisation of their assets. As a result, fleet operators can keep their trailers productive and avoid empty runs. Real-time insights on trailer locations make it possible to maintain cargo security. Another benefit of trailer tracking is the ability to monitor brake systems and tyre conditions, both of which contribute to fleet safety.
