A commercial trailer tracking system uses a small GPS tracking device that is attached to the trailer. This device emits a GPS tracking signal that records its current location at scheduled intervals. These GPS coordinates are then sent to a fleet management system via a cellular connection where they are displayed on the map. The dashboard will often provide additional information such as the trailer type and size, whether the trailer is moving, and if it’s tethered to a vehicle.
The battery life of a GPS tracking device for trailer depends on the device, the amount of GPS transmissions and if it connects to the trailer power or not. Wireless Links provides a trailer tracking device that operates for 5 years off its back up battery.
The best trailer GPS trackers monitor and protect your trailer by giving real-time GPS data and alerts on unauthorized use such as geofence exits or door open/close.

Wireless Links specialty is temperature monitoring and we provide a number of solutions for refrigerated trailer temperature monitoring. You can monitor temperature of multiple compartments and receive alerts on temperature deviations.
The trailer GPS tracker can track in real time. When externally powered (tethered to the power of the trailer), the Piccolo Hybrid+ operates in real-time vehicle tracking mode sending GPS in high frequency, for example every minute.
Once power is disconnected,meaning the trailer was disconnected from the cabin, the Piccolo Hybrid+ automatically switches to Asset Tracking (AT) mode, sending an alert on trailer disconnect. Now the device will report once a day when parked (user-definable).
Sure, you have a live location sharing feature and if the trailer is on the move, you can also share accurate ETA’s.
Yes. All reports are customize-able to your needs. The inventory report contains your asset name, last activity, in-active days and so on, providing you the visibility you need for maximum inventory tracking.
The best way to prevent cargo theft from a trailer is to install a GPS trailer tracking device. Without a GPS tracking unit, recovering your lost or stolen trailer and cargo is difficult.
In 2010, CargoNet, a trailer cargo theft prevention and recovery network, performed a self-insured impact study and found that cargo theft costs 10 times the goods stolen. According to their study, “You have to reimport [the product] or rush shipment. You’ve got to do air freight and that’s more costly. Then you have drayage from the port, so if you lose $200,000 in cargo, you need to generate $2 million in sales to offset it.”
