PAR Logistics Management Systems (PAR LMS), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PAR Technology Corporation, announced new dry van and flatbed trailer management systems designed specifically for these vehicle types.

Customized reporting from these new systems allows fast data-driven decisions about operations and planning, the company says. Reporting options include excessive trailer dwell time, geofence arrival and departure notifications, door open and close alerts, yard and trailer pool management, and turn-time per location.

The new DT200 is designed exclusively for dry van trailers and is quickly mounted inside the trailer with a small remote antenna on the roof, the company says. The DT200 sends real-time alerts on trailer status, location history, geofence status and door activity. Users select the alerts and set the frequency. They can choose to receive regular updates or manage by exception, getting alerts only when status is outside preset limits.

The new FT200 flatbed trailer management system, designed specifically for flatbeds and chassis, is mounted on the frame rail with a small remote ruggedized antenna on the bulkhead or nose rail. The FT200 provides information needed to reduce fleet sizes, lower trailer repositioning efforts, cut intermodal chassis write-offs and eliminate manual yard checks, the company says.

“We continue to see significant demand for both our standard refrigerated container and trailer product as well as a solution for customers with mixed fleets,” said John Sammon III, President, PAR LMS. “These customers are looking for a sole provider of a trailer management solution for reefers, dry vans, and flatbeds. With the DT200 and FT200, PAR can now provide that complete solution.”
