The new TL4 door locking system

Offers safety for cargo and drivers
June 2022 – A trailer with an electronic door lock control system ensures that the goods are protected against unauthorised access. This smart safety function enables users to automatically control the door locking system, increasing process and transport safety. This is available exclusively in combination with the networked TrailerConnect® telematics solution from Schmitz Cargobull. 

The new TL4 door locking system offers safety for cargo and drivers 

Via the TrailerConnect® portal, users can define loading and unloading locations where the door locking system automatically unlocks the trailer on arrival or locks it when leaving. Geofence-areas only need to be configured once, simply and conveniently in TrailerConnect® portal. Furthermore, once the trailer door has been closed, a general automatic lock can be activated at the touch of a button in the TrailerConnect® portal or beSmart app.

The system offers a high standard of safety due to automating of the locking and unlocking processes. Once configured in the TrailerConnect® portal, risks are minimised and manual work as part of the transport process is reduced. This results in a higher level of control for dispatchers and lowers the demands on drivers. All of the locking and unlocking processes are fully documented and can provide proof that the trailer was locked continuously during the entire transport.
