Monitor

All their trucks were already equipped with a modern tracking system, enabling their dispatchers to monitor the cargo in real-time. However, Transport Th. Wouters still saw more potential to optimize their transportation process. In order to run even more smoothly and cost-effectively they wanted to equip their fleet of 125 trailers as well with a GPS and IoT tracking system. One of their most difficult requirements was to find a partner that could seamlessly integrate with their existing software systems. This is what brought them to Suivo.

125 Trailers

Their previously installed tracking system used an on-board computer system. The problem however, was that it could not detect exactly which trailers are connected to which truck. The innovative trailer tracking system from Suivo helps them close exactly this gap. 125 trailers will be equipped with the battery-powered asset tracker Hydrogen. This smart tracker will help to track the location of the trailer as soon as the trailers move. It also determines a status like ‘free’ or ‘connected to a truck’. Once a trailer is connected with a truck, it detects via a tiny IoT tag – which is plugged to the back of the truck – to which truck it’s connected. As soon as the trailers detects which truck is nearby a link is made between trailer & truck. This linked information will be sent through the Suivo IoT Cloud platform and gets visualized in the dashboards of their own software. In the tracking platform trucks and trailers are visualized as “occupied”.

Cost-effective

This very simple process, with easy DIY-installable trackers enables Transport Th. Wouters to have a real-time overview on the free capacity of trailers, follow-up transport loads in real-time and run their transportation process even more smoothly and cost-effectively.
