Omnitracs, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Qualcomm Incorporated and a provider of integrated wireless systems, applications and services to transportation and logistics companies, announced new features for its Trailer Tracks 210 (TT210) platform.

The new features, Trailer Specifications and Fleet Mapping capabilities, are designed to work with fleets equipped with both TT210 and the Mobile Computing Platform 110 or 200 (MCP110 or MCP200) to further streamline operations and more effectively manage assets, the company says.

When integrated with Omnitracs’ MCP110 or MCP200, the TT210 will automatically transmit trailer connect/disconnect time, date, location and trailer ID directly to the in-cab display. This will enable drivers to quickly identify incorrect trailer pick ups as well as helping enhance customer service with near-real-time insight into delivery status.

“We are able to arm fleets with unique and valuable connect and disconnect information—both to the driver and back office—to help run their businesses more efficiently,” said Vikas Jain, vice president of product management and software as a service at Omnitracs.

The Trailer Specifications feature offers a number of default specifications, such as trailer type, length and VIN. It also enables customers to add three custom specifications with distinct labels and values to each trailer to fit their unique operational needs. Additionally, with the new Fleet Mapping feature, organizations can view the location of trailers and tractors on a single map.

“As one of the earliest adopters, we look forward to taking full advantage of the enhanced fleet mapping and trailer specs functionality to further improve remote and in-cab visibility,” said Mike Gabbei, chief information officer at Celadon Trucking. “We’ve already come to rely heavily on the TT210’s location and status tracking, geofencing capability, cargo sensor and immediate connect/disconnect information to reduce out-of-route miles, ensure on-time delivery and more efficiently manage trailer inventories, and are excited about the additional benefits we will now enjoy.”

The new features are now available for TT210 and MCP customers at no additional cost.
