Fleet managementTrailerConnect® intelligently links information about your fleet. Data on all trailer components, including cooling unit, running gear and sensors, is recorded chronologically. Service-relevant real-time warning alerts prevent your semi-trailer from standing idle. All technical events are documented with the date and location, along with their rectification.Read more
Pro-active monitoringWith the central monitoring of the Schmitz Cargobull S.CU cooling unit, breakdowns can be avoided. You are proactively informed about critical states of the cooling unit. Service Partners receive all the necessary information in advance, can order spare parts and schedule in the work. This restricts workshop visits to an absolute minimum, saving you time. Participation in the system is of course voluntary.Read more
Safe refrigeration chainThe smallest temperature deviations can have an impact on the storage life and quality of foodstuffs and pharmaceutical products. TrailerConnect® lets you control temperature specifications of the cooling unit. The system delivers information about the temperatures and humidity in the cargo area, the fuel level in the fuel tank and the operation of the cooling unit. Real-time data lets you document a complete refrigeration chain for the entire journey in accordance with DIN EN 12830.Read more
Vehicle managementTrailerConnect® offers your customers a versatile, state-of-the-art trailer. You can monitor all your semi-trailers at all times and access all relevant fleet management information. Equipment monitoring lets you arrange preventative repairs to avoid unplanned downtime. Usage-based charging models available, due to the complete transparency offered by the system.Read more
Transport safety in multimodal transportTrailerConnect® lets you remotely monitor and control the trailer during multimodal transport involving rail and ferry transport or intermediate stops in transshipment transport, ensuring that the freight arrives safely at its destination. Key functions can be controlled remotely, enabling you to reliably handle matters from the forwarding desk if no driver is available to intervene. Alarms can be issued when setpoints are reached.Read more
In geofencing, you configure areas that you want to monitor specifically. TrailerConnect® transmits the current trailer position data and provides real-time information when trailers enter or leave the configured areas. You also receive an alarm if vehicles spend an unreasonable amount of time in the area. You can also open and close the TL3 door locking system in the S.KO COOL SMART automatically using the geofencing function.Read more

Why does TrailerConnect® telematics represent such innovative equipment, particularly in the S.KO Cool Smart?Because telematics in the trailer helps to make many monitoring and control processes for the semi-trailer and load more efficient and transparent, permitting considerable optimisation.
What benefits does an OEM system offer?All components are ideally connected to each other in the trailer and professionally installed in line with automotive standards. This creates a high level of quality and maximum system availability.
What should my trailer telematics system do in addition to giving the position?As well as specifying the location of the trailer, a trailer telematics system provides intelligent connectivity and fast diagnosis of all the components of the trailer, combined with reliable integrated temperature management. The right telematics systems enables processes to be optimised and transport safety improved.
