Cargo crime is omnipresent and offences are numerous. Especially in the area of refrigerated transport, valuable cargo - e.g. from the pharmaceutical sector - needs to be protected. If necessary, have goods transported and monitored in accordance with the Trucking Security Requirements (TSR) of the Transported Asset Protection Association (TAPA). 
With the new TAPA mode in the TrailerConnect® portal, you receive predefined and relevant TAPA security messages at a shortened reporting interval.

Overview of the TAPA-relevant messages: 
o Door lock activated / deactivated
o Trailer coupled / uncoupled
o Alarm system activated / deactivated
o Coupling status
o Movement status
o And many more 

All functions are included in the new TAPA TSR1 telematics tariff.

  • 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.
