The truck and trailer rental business has seen a veritable boom in recent times and more and more transport companies are renting equipment to cover peak times or professionally outsource their fleets.
Rental companies are taking up the challenge by ordering a full range of vehicles with manufacturers such as Schmitz Cargobull and renting them out to carriers when they need them, either as long-term or short-term rentals.
At the same time, rental companies undertake to provide their customers with all kinds of services that to date manufacturers have provided them with – including the autonomous trailer telematics systems carriers need for various freight solutions.
Schmitz Cargobull Telematics has focussed on these needs and offers rental companies a customised trailer telematics system. The advantage for rental companies is that they can keep track of their trailers at all times and have rapid access to any data they require. They also have an edge over their competitors in that they can also present their telematics service to their rental customers as an added value.
Rentals are also about optimising trailer utilisation and trailer telematics promotes this goal by monitoring the trailer status – essential for preventative maintenance. Schmitz Cargobull Telematics – certainly ahead!
