Schmitz Cargobull and Trimble partner up to provide seamless data integration


Schmitz Cargobull’s Trailer Connect concept combines the advantages of trailer telematics with proven vehicle equipment to create an efficient transport solution. Combined with Trimble’s software, key truck and trailer data can now automatically be transmitted to and displayed in Trimble’s portal.

The integration thus offers Trimble customers a clear, detailed overview of important truck and trailer data in one platform without having to install extra hardware. 

The integration also offers the possibility of sending the data to the end client’s Transport Management System which enhances their logistic and dispatching processes. This is, consequently, an ideal solution for mixed fleet scenarios. 

Partnering with the best of the transportation industry is of critical importance to Trimble and our transportation customers. This integration is yet another important step in the process of digitizing the transportation industry.
