Being able to locate, track, and manage your trailers translates into many tangible benefits for your business.

Reduced risk

With better visibility and insight, your risk of losing or having a trailer stolen is reduced. MiX Asset Manager lets you set tamper alerts and then replay your trailer’s movements, the distances it travels, and other events that may cause damage to it.

Maximize revenue

Knowing where your trailers are at all times, and when they are available, can help to improve planning, efficiency, and utilization.

Minimize costs

MiX Asset Manager devices are easy to install, and you will see little-to-no downtime at all. In devices that are battery operated, the batteries have a good lifespan and require no maintenance. With these devices installed on your trailers, you can also reduce the costs of manually checking where each one is.

Streamline processes

The solution offers the functionality to manage various aspects relating to an asset’s day-to-day running by electronically capturing asset details, service and licensing information, and fuel entered.

Quick Recovery Rate

Everyone, even your most reliable, trusted, and responsible employees make mistakes. When these mistakes result in a loss of your business’s property, they can end up costing you money. GPS trailer tracking devices do more than just show you where your property is.

By installing a GPS tracking device on your trailers, you will know if they are moved when they shouldn’t be or when they move outside a geographic boundary or geofence that you define. If these events occur, you will be alerted by email, text message, or another preferred method. This lets you quickly identify your trailer’s theft and let the authorities know exactly where it is, and if it is on the move, making the chances that your trailer will be recovered undamaged much more likely.

We do more than show you where your trailers are, we give you improved visibility and peace of mind. By alerting you to potential theft, fraud, or misuse, these devices do more than assist in the recovery of lost trailers, they help keep them from getting lost in the first place.

Monitor Usage and Location

When your trailers are on the road, it isn’t easy to track mileage. Using GPS tracking for trailers allows you to monitor driver activity, speed, distance, and mileage traveled by your trailers. This gives you information you can use to find ways to reduce labor, conserve fuel, and cut costs. It also helps you to bill clients more efficiently.

Protect and Monitor Trailers with GPS

Do you worry about your trailers and the equipment they contain? You are not alone, vandalism and theft of unattended equipment occur all too often, costing you time and your business money. Every business that uses trailers knows the risks of leaving them unattended, where they may be stolen or used without our permission. With MiX Asset Manager, you get the peace of mind that comes with knowing exactly where your trailers are and knowing that you will be alerted of any unauthorized use.

The power of a trailer GPS tracker puts you in control of your non-mobile assets. Imagine what you would do if your trailer was stolen and you had no way to find it. Chances are, it would be stripped, painted, and the VIN number removed before you had a chance to do anything about it.
