GE's Trailer Fleet Services business has signed agreements with both Great Dane Trailers and Hyundai Translead to begin performing factory installations of VeriWise Asset Intelligence systems. The units will be installed on current model year trailers GE has ordered at the request of its lease customers.
Once the new trailers are installed with VeriWise, they can be remotely activated to transmit a variety of information using the optional sensor array also available from GE. This includes cargo and door sensors.
Cargo sensors virtually “show” customers the inside of their trailer via a web interface. By enabling fleets to monitor shipments in transit, and generating reports when cargo status changes from loaded to empty, or vice versa, they can help improve trailer utilization and increase security.
Door sensors enable event reporting with location, time, and date of a trailer's door opening or closing. They can provide more detail about trailer activity and improve security. Sensors are compatible with both swing and roll doors.
GE's web and XML-based data analytical features also speed decisionmaking for asset and logistics managers.
