The longest communication gap in trucking, the saying goes, is the gap between the trailer and the tractor. Class 8 tractors are putting vast amounts of real-time data into the hands of maintenance managers, safety teams, dealerships, and OEMs. But getting a signal from the trailer following behind that tractor has proven to be a maddeningly slow process.
That’s not to say that trailer telematics haven’t been gaining ground. In fact, trailers have made tremendous strides in communicating their overall health, location, and critical operating data for many vital components and systems. And that list is growing. But there remains an elusive lack of integration, coordination and simplicity with trailer telematics.
Nevertheless, many fleets have been pioneering the use of trailer telematics and finding it incredibly useful in day-to-day operations, with very real return on investment. And, these fleets say, the technology is improving at a rapid rate, and getting easier to use, integrate and coordinate with other telematics systems every day.

Today’s fleets require increased asset visibility, ease of software integration, and the knowledge that their units are operating safely as one.
A calling to improve maintenance and move to the next level
Extraordinary intelligence - Drov Technologies' innovative AirBoxOne connectivity turns tank trailers into smarter, safer, more efficient vehicles.
Drov Technologies offers multiple wheel sensors that integrate on its AirboxOne telematics solution for trailers.
“The trailer has been the forgotten asset in the telematics world until recently,” says Lisa Mullen, CEO, Drōv Technologies.
Drōv Technologies, a leader in the smart truck and trailer movement, partners with SKF Vehicle Aftermarket.
Drōv Technologies, a leader in the smart truck and trailer movement, is out to make tank trailers smarter with its AirBoxOne.
It was a little over two years ago when we wrote the days of calling dry van trailers “boxes with wheels” were numbered. After last month’s Technology & Maintenance Counc
Using wired and wireless technologies, the AirBoxOne platform relays diagnostics, operational, and safety information to the fleet and driver.
The benefits of the system include safety and financial ROI. There are fuel efficiency savings that come with standard tire inflation and management.
With the introduction of this new technology, the company is hoping to revolutionize the trucking industry.
