BRUSSELS, BELGIUM—The TrailerGUARD telematics system with remote diagnostics technology for trailer fleet management has won the 2012 Telematics Award for logistics and transport. This industry honor was awarded recently at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2012, one of the industry’s most comprehensive tradeshows. TrailerGUARD is provided by WABCO Holdings Inc, a supplier to the commercial vehicle industry.

TrailerGUARD’s new remote diagnostics function is the industry’s first of its kind for a trailer’s electronic braking and air suspension control system. It allows remote diagnosis by providing information about the trailer’s technical status in real-time.

TrailerGUARD telematics also allow fleet managers to remotely monitor the vehicle’s various operating data such as brake wear, mileage, axle load, tire pressure, temperature inside a refrigerated trailer and door status, among other operating functions.

In 2010, WABCO’s TrailerGUARD won the Telematics Award for asset protection, in recognition of the system’s outstanding value.

TrailerGUARD telematics is part of WABCO’s Intelligent Trailer Program, a suite of applications for safer, more efficient and more innovative operation of all types of trailers. Trailer builders and fleet operators select those functions most relevant and cost-effective for their needs through separate or combined modules.
