ERoad, a global transportation technology services company, and Phillips Connect, a provider of smart trailer technology, plan to bring Phillips Connect devices, sensors, dashboards, and reporting to ERoad customers.
ERoad will offer the full line of Phillips Connect devices for powered and non-powered assets, along with sensors, harnesses, and accessories for advanced monitoring of cargo status and trailer health.
ERoad recently launched its Clarity Dashcam and ERoad Go, a driver workflow, pickup-and-delivery and truck-friendly navigation solution, which launched in fall of 2020. With the addition of ERoad Asset Tracker powered by Phillips Connect, the ERoad platform provides end-to-end visibility and management for today’s data-driven fleets, according to the announcement.
Phillips Connect solutions allow fleets to locate assets, maximize productivity, and give their own customers a live view into their trailers, containers, and chassis, according to the announcement. In addition, Phillips Connect solutions are offered in various form factors and are expandable, allowing customers to integrate multiple sensors that help them monitor cargo status and add visibility of health status in real-time.
ERoad and Phillips Connect are integrating their systems so that information about drivers, tractors, fleet assets, and geofences entered in ERoad is available in the Phillips Connect solution to make deployment and management easy.
