Danish FREJA Transport & Logistics has been using the TrailerConnect solution from Schmitz Cargobull for ten years now. A long lasting partnership, indeed, recently celebrated with a dedicated event in Münster. FREJA and Schmitz Cargobull have been cooperating for almost 20 years overall, and the TrailerConnect telematics system from Schmitz Cargobull had been in use on vehicles of the Danish transport company since 2012.
What then TrailerConnect system can do
As well as indicating the location of the trailer, the trailer telematics system provides intelligent networking and a rapid diagnosis of all the trailer components, together with reliable integrated temperature management in the refrigerated vehicles. The telematics system enables processes to be optimised and transport safety to be increased. Schmitz Cargobull states that currently over 2,000 trailers in the fleet are equipped with the TrailerConnect telematics system.
FREJA Transport & Logistics offers dedicated transport, logistics and warehousing solutions in Europe and around the world, including customised and personalised service as well as guaranteed quality. The company has been privately owned since its founding in 1985 and is one of Northern Europe’s leading logistics companies with branches in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Poland and China.
Defining the individual configurations
«We were among the very first customers to equip their vehicles with trailer telematics from Schmitz Cargobull. In intensive cooperation with the product experts from Schmitz Cargobull, we were able to define the individual configurations that were important for us. With the telematics application, we can plan our fleet even better and reduce CO2 emissions by avoiding empty runs», reported Lars Bakkegaard, Group CFO at FREJA Transport & Logistics.
