Trailer manufacturer Schmitz Cargobull will be cooperating with Trimble, a leading provider of high-precision positioning technology, mobile communication and software, on the development of data management solutions. Integration with the Schmitz Cargobull Data Management Center provides Trimble customers with a clear, detailed overview of important truck and trailer data on one platform without the need to install additional hardware. This allows important truck and trailer data to be automatically transferred to and displayed on Trimble’s platform.

“Transparency along the entire logistics chain is the basis for our customers to design their processes individually and as efficiently as possible. The cooperation between Schmitz Cargobull and Trimble is another step towards digitally supported, high supply chain transparency,” commented Adrien Nivard, Channel Manager EMEA and Sören Danielsen, Manager Strategy & Business Development at Schmitz Cargobull.

“With the Data Management Center, hauliers have full control over their data and can pass on selected data to third parties in an efficient way. By intelligently linking information on the vehicle, tour and order, more than just position and temperature data can be selected, processed and transmitted to third-party systems at the touch of a button in future. The TrailerConnect Data Management Center stands for connectivity and transparency. Everyone involved along the supply chain benefits from this”, added Danielsen.

Since 2018, Schmitz Cargobull has been equipping all box semi-trailers and curtainsiders with the TrailerConnect telematics system as standard. If a customer uses a so-called third-party system, it is possible to securely transfer the data to third-party systems such as Transport Management Systems (TMS) or Real Time Visibility Platforms (RTVP) via the Data Management Centre (DMC).
