Proactive monitoring through the TrailerConnect® trailer telematics system

Available for individual vehicles and the entire fleet
September 2022 – Identifying problems and abnormalities in the cooling unit and solving them quickly before they affect day-to-day transport operations or disrupt the cooling chain – this is the aim of proactive monitoring.

As part of the process of digitalising Full Service solutions, the experts from Schmitz Cargobull have now revised proactive monitoring for the Schmitz Cargobull cooling unit S.CU. Failure of the cooling unit is critical as the carrier has to ensure that the cold chain is maintained and that goods arrive at their destination in good condition. With the new proactive monitoring functionalities, error escalation for the Schmitz Cargobull S.CU cooling unit intervenes much earlier and provides the customer with specific instructions if the unit is at risk of failure.As such, the driver is informed before the cooling unit fails, and is able to take suitable action to keep downtimes to a minimum. 


Available for individual vehicles and the entire fleet

The new “FleetHealth” dashboard in the TrailerConnect® portal also offers all information relevant to the cooling unit at a glance. Traffic-light statuses provide visual information on the state of the cooling unit fleet. Furthermore, any upcoming maintenance work is displayed at an early stage around the clock. This provides customers with complete planning security in day-to-day operations, improving and increasing the transparency of vehicle fleet management. 

Cargobull Euroservice offers additional support under a Full Service Contract. The speedy arrangement of workshop appointments helps to ensure even quicker response times in the event of problems and makes sure the vehicle is soon back on the road.
