Omnitracs launches new asset management solution


DALLAS, Tex.–Omnitracs, LLC has announced the release of Omnitracs Trailer Tracks 150 (TT150), a new solution for fleet managers to track trailers and cargo. The new solution is significantly smaller, easier to install, and more cost effective, the company said.

TT150 enables fleet owners to manage their trailer inventory, keep cargo safe, and drivers on the road. It helps keep track of trailers stored in set locations and allows for customizable alerts that signal if a trailer has been dropped at an unauthorized site.

“Fleet owners continue to struggle with a lack of real-time data related to their fleet, which results in the need to search for trailers, increasing their costs associated with driver time and fuel, as well as leaving them vulnerable to theft and misuse of trailers,” said Jeff Champa, Omnitracs vice president of product management. “The new TT150 improves visibility into both trailer location and status, eliminates the loss of trailers and cargo, increases utilization, and puts an end to wasted driver time and fuel searching for empty, usable trailers—all for a low price,” he said.

Omnitracs TT150 provides fleets with the following features, the company said:

  • Increased driver and tractor productivity and security with real-time monitoring of status and location of trailers and containers
  • Reduction of fuel, as fleet managers do not need to search for trailers
  • Better operations/planning and enhanced customer service through automated and customized reports
  • Increase asset usage, trailer pool inventory, as well as address unauthorized use of trailers for storage purposes through access to real-time data
  • Simplified installation process through mobile-friendly, peel-and-stick installation
