THERMO King is expanding its Connected Solutions portfolio with ‘Trailer Assist’, a new technology that collects and presents a range of insights related to a trailer’s operational condition designed to extend the user’s ability to view fleet performance beyond refrigeration units.

Trailer Assist offers a range of operational and maintenance data points by which fleet and service managers can monitor day to day trailer conditions and enhance vehicle uptime through proactive maintenance as well as analysing weight information via axle loads, extending the lifespan of tyres and optimising fuel consumption by tracking their pressure.

Trailer Assist collects data from a trailer’s various electronic sensors and processes them in real time, offering alarms and events logs via email, text or apps. This information can be accessed via a smartphone or online via the Thermo King TracKing platform.
