One of the benefits of GPS tracking on trailers isn’t to STOP trailer theft, but it certainly does help in recovery for loss prevention. Trailer tracking devices hidden on a trailer properly will track the trailer as the thief travels down the road. Even if they do cut the wire, our devices have a battery backup device inside them and will report.
Imagine a stolen trailer full of cargo is stolen. Without tracking, you’re going to be relying on time frames, locations, peoples unreliable information to police, etc. If you have invested in GPS tracking, you simply call the police, log into our system, and point them to the location of the trailer or the direction its headed.
Even if your trailer is empty, the average cost of a new tractor-trailer is now estimated to range between $140,000 and $175,000, according to data analyzed by Frost & Sullivan. Insurance may cover some or all of the cost of your trailer, but who wants to deal with all that nightmare when you could simply recover the trailer?
Having an effect trailer tracking system in place before problems begin is the most effective way for trailer management.
