Irvine, CA (June 14, 2023) – Phillips Connect has assembled four powerful IoT: Internet of Trailers™ kits, allowing fleets of all sizes to seamlessly convert to Smart-Trailers. Smart-Trailer technology enables real-time diagnostics, fault detection, and trend reporting – increasing transparency and maximizing efficiency.
Jim Epler, executive vice president at Phillips Connect, has spent over a decade studying some of the largest fleets in North America with the goal of “future-proofing” their operations by equipping them with innovative tech products and telematics. As a result of that work, Phillips Connect has identified four Smart-Trailer kits designed to increase fleet efficiency, uptime, safety, and ROI even for smaller fleets that have limited resources to add telematics solutions.
Each kit has an average payback of twelve months and an average ROI of 500% after ten years. Phillips Connect Smart-Trailer kits save fleets money fast.
