Schmitz Cargobull and TIP to share digital trailer data

Trailer data from standard Schmitz Cargobull TrailerConnect hardware can now be transmitted automatically to TIP’s Insight system.

This enables operators using Schmitz Cargobull telematics and from TIP Trailer Services can decide on which which system the data should be displayed.

“This uncomplicated and convenient solution is made possible by a cooperation between Cargobull Telematics and TIP Insight,” according to Schmitz Cargobull.

“The use of the standardised TrailerConnect hardware in the Schmitz Cargobull Trailer is the most sustainable and economically sensible decision to respond to the increasing demand for digitalisation,” Marnix Lannoije, managing director, Schmitz Cargobull Telematics says.

“The TrailerConnect hardware enables continuous analysis of real-time trailer data and forms the basis for networked services, significantly increasing sustainability and competitiveness.

“Smooth data provision requires both standardisation of data and interoperability of systems as elementary building blocks.”
