Gerry Mead, Executive Director of Innovation for Phillips Industries, recently wrote an article for Fleet Service Technology on the emergence of digitization and smart technology as they apply to trailers.
He talks about how modern advances in smart trailer technology are critical in monitoring your fleet and addressing industry challenges including driver retention, rising costs, equipment breakdowns and growing customer demand for faster and more efficient fleets.
“To make progress,” Gerry says, “fleets need to come together to voice their needs, recommend best practices, define a system that best suits their needs, and set standards for the future of smart trailers. This approach will help suppliers to get back to task to deliver what fleets really need – a single network that collects data from each sensor, regardless of supplier, and feeds it back to fleets with a simplistic and prescriptive narrative. Such progress will deliver bottom-line savings and increased profitability for fleets of all sizes.”
