SAFETY case study
TIP Trailer Services, a shareholder of Novacom Europe (provider of Trailermatics), is one of Europe’s leading equipment services providers, with more than 50,000 trailer, tanker, intermodal and truck units. Since implementing Trailermatics on their own trailer fleet, TIP Trailer Services identified that incorrect EBS brake coupling to tractors, overbraking by drivers and trailer overloading was driving a 10% increase in brake and tyre wear. Through educating drivers about safety and these important factors, they are now seeing a flow through of increased maintenance savings. In addition, installation of Trailermatics has provided TIP Trailer Services with an opportunity to approach relevant government bodies in some European countries, in an effort to decrease asset service cycle times – thereby saving on service costs and vehicle downtime.
