By providing real-time visibility of load data and fault systems, such as braking and stability, Webfleet Trailer improves safety and ensures compliance with permissible cargo weight, reducing the risk of rollovers due to overloading.

This innovative solution empowers fleet operators to optimize trailer utilisation, minimise empty runs, and limit breakdowns by detecting tire issues early. Trailers equipped with the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) receive live and historical data, along with notifications of abnormal tire pressure or temperature. This information extends tire life, boosts fuel efficiency, and reduces CO2 emissions.

Moreover, the trailer solution plays a crucial role in cost savings through dynamic, proactive maintenance. By flagging trailer malfunctions and maintenance tasks, businesses can reduce downtime and extend the trailer's lifespan.

Taco van der Leij, Vice President of Webfleet Europe at Bridgestone Mobility Solutions, emphasised the significance of Webfleet Trailer, stating, "With Webfleet Trailer, we are offering a proactive monitoring and reporting tool that goes way beyond 'track and trace'," said Taco van der Leij, Vice President of Webfleet Europe at Bridgestone Mobility Solutions.

"Trailers are the backbone of long-haul goods transportation but managing a trailer fleet can be challenging. By providing a one-platform-solution for all a transport fleet's vehicles and trailers, with real-time data insights and actionable intelligence, we are supporting these businesses in their quest to maximise trailer performance, save costs and improve safety and security."

Available across all European regions where Webfleet provides services, Webfleet Trailer empowers businesses to maximise trailer performance, save costs, and enhance safety and security.
