Transform Your Trailer Management Today!
Trailer tracking has grown more prominent over the years, as technology expands and prices decrease. Many commercial companies have already taken advantage of the benefits trailer tracking solutions can provide. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to adopt GPS trackers for your trailers, let this be your sign that the right time is now!
What Trailer Tracking Devices Can Do For You
Trailer tracking devices can do so much more than just give you the location of your trailer, especially when paired with advanced software technology. Some devices also contain sensors that can alert you to doors opening and closing, occupancy %, temperature changes, and much more.
By linking the devices to a software platform, such as CallPass’s LANA Asset platform, you get instant access to all this data right at your fingertips. View the current location of every trailer in your fleet through the map on your computer. Get alerts for significant events sent straight to your phone, whether through email or text message. Give all your managers access to the platform and you’ll be well-covered in the event anything goes amiss.
The Consequences of Waiting to Purchase Trailer Tracking Devices
Do all these benefits make you think that investing in trailer tracking is a good idea? We hope so. But, are you also thinking that you’ll wait to make the purchase until you have a little more cash on hand, have more staff to manage it, or have a bigger fleet? Take some advice from this case study about Custom Pine Straw, a pine straw producer/distributor for the South East Continental United States.
The team at Custom Pine Straw has built a reputation of high-quality customer service. This has led to major growth for the business, which unfortunately made a certain risk more visible. From their central location in High Springs, Florida, their fleet includes tractors, trucks, and trailers. Although the tractors and trucks were already equipped with GPS asset tracking, they had another 900 unpowered trailers with no tracking at all. When these trailers went missing, got stolen, or were misplaced, it took a lot of time and money to relocate them and get them back.
To mitigate this situation, Custom Pine Straw invested in CallPass’ LANA Asset platform. By attaching trailer tracking devices to each unpowered trailer, they were able to view every trailer’s location in real-time on a map through the software which included detailed reporting and intuitive alerts allowing their management team to always stay connected to their operations. With real-time updates, the team never had to wonder where a trailer was and if it was going to arrive on time or not.
The addition of LANA Asset also aided other departments within Custom Pine Straw. Accounting could now make weekly payroll much more seamless. With highly accurate data, no mistakes were made. For the Sales department, each trailer load that’s delivered could be confirmed by viewing the information on the platform.

Equipment Management Software Capabilities
While every asset tracking solution comes standard with essentially basic capabilities, that might not be enough for your specific business and what’s needed. Locating trailers and other assets is to be expected with every solution, though some asset tracking systems offer more features, such as reporting on maintenance, driving behaviors, optimizing the best routes, providing data on asset conditions and so much more.
Be sure to keep an eye for those additional capabilities that are designed to provide in-depth data on an asset from the moment it begins tracking. An example of this type of added feature from CallPass’ LANA Asset Tracking Software is that it will alert fleet managers if of geozone crossings and an array of other fully customizable alerts & notifications. This type of information allows you to always hold the grips of not only each asset in your fleet, but a better overall picture of your operations.
