Ensure your goods are safe and transported in line with your company quality standards

Trailer & reefer management by Astrata will enable you to improve your business performance and increase profitability by:

 

  • Remote monitoring of trucks, trailers and their contents. It works without any driver intervention and whether or not the trailer is connected to a truck.
  • FleetVisor provides information on trailer and reefer locations and pre-sets alerting both driver and the back-office if thresholds are reached.
  • Trailer & Reefer management helps prevent trailer theft, which is estimated as a €8 billion/year business in Europe alone.
  • Eliminates the time wasted in locating 'misplaced' trailers, even when the trailer is being pulled by a subcontractor.
  • 1% improvement in overall trailer utilisation can contribute up to 15% in margin improvement.
  • The system automates driver vehicle inspection reports, eliminating paper reports and making it easier for drivers to record inspection information. 

Trailer & Reefer management solutions enable full asset control from your back-office

With trailer and reefer management solutions you’ll see improved fleet efficiency, a reduction in idle assets and less down-time. You will also experience improved delivery timeliness and fewer asset and cargo thefts, while ensuring the optimal condition of temperature-sensitive loads. This is how:

 

  • Find trailers and expedite deliveries through knowledge of trailer arrivals.
  • Ensure the quality of your cargo by accurate real-time temperature monitoring throughout the journey.
  • Avoid disputes over spoilage by identifying exactly where and when temperature problems occurred - using objective information.
  • Deter, detect and delay crime, through physical asset and freight protection.
  • Identify contributing factors affecting brakes and tyre wear.
