Terion has announced that it has exceeded 100,000 installed FleetView trailer tracking units, a milestone that caps a year of significant sales growth, during which new installations increased by more than 60 percent.
Terion says FleetView 3 offers several exclusive tools and capabilities that help users increase trailer utilization, reduce trailer-to-tractor ratio, improve cargo security, reduce fuel costs and increase driver satisfaction. FleetView 3 exclusive features, according to the company, include:
Availability for multiple trailer types, including dry vans, flatbeds and refrigerated trailers. Also available for reefer monitoring.
External installation, which means rapid deployment whether the trailer is loaded or empty.
Patented Cargo Sensor that measures the entire length of the trailer.
Software enhancements that can be downloaded over-the-air, eliminating time and expense associated with taking trailers out of service to add features.
FleetView Tractor ID, which reports the tractor’s identification code and fleet code through the FleetView unit, minimizing misdirects and identifying trailer misuse.
High-bandwidth communication paths that allow FleetView messages to contain up to 10 events. Customers receive more critical information to better manage the trailer fleet — all at a lower cost.
A full range of solar charging options that provide significant improvement in battery performance and overall battery life.
“This milestone not only illustrates our commitment to providing the most comprehensive trailer management solutions to our customers, but also that our clients and the trucking industry are responding,” said Ken Cranston, president and chief executive officer of Plano, Texas-based Terion. “In the future, we will continue to enhance FleetView to ensure that Terion continues to meet the needs of the industry.”
