Xtra Lease adds Qualcomm trailer tracking

Xtra Lease, a provider of over-the-road trailer equipment rental and leasing in North America, and Qualcomm, a provider of wireless enterprise applications and services, announced that Xtra Lease is expanding its service offering to include a customized version of Qualcomm’s T2 Untethered TrailerTracs asset management system for its trailers.

The two companies have collaborated to create a new Web-based user interface that will improve Xtra Lease customers’ ability to manage their fleets through trailer tracking. The new trailer-tracking interface provides dashboard features that enable Xtra Lease customers to quickly hone in on fleet dormancy, utilization, history and mapping results. Qualcomm also has incorporated the enhancements into the T2 system for wider use; all customers using the Web-based T2 asset management system are able to use the new features and functionalities.

Xtra Lease plans to add Qualcomm’s T2 system to most of its dry van trailers by August. Xtra Lease customers will receive expanded tracking coverage into Mexico, in addition to the United States and Canada.
