Truck-Lite Europe have entered into a partnership deal with Axscend enabling them to supply a complete “intelligent trailer” solution for their Trailer OE’s and fleet customers.

Axscend’s TrailerMaster system is a complete trailer management system that can monitor everything from braking performance and tyre pressures to the trailer location and the load. Furthermore, their unique portal provides a complete multiplatform fleet management tool which can even be integrated into existing systems.

Truck-Lite Europe will be supplying TrailerMaster units thus allowing them to incorporate the very latest in telematics technology with their trailer kit solutions. The TrailerMaster Junction Box will be able to be integrated into the standard lighting configuration or can be upgraded to the TrailerMaster Function Box; which adds a number of trailer safety and telematics enhancements such as Easy-Docking and Lamp monitoring to name just two.

“Truck-Lite is pleased to be able to expand its portfolio to offer the TrailerMaster range. Utilising the synergies and industry experience of both our companies will enable us to offer a complete fleet solution unique to the market. Axscend have shown themselves to be a forerunner in developing telematics and fleet management and partnering with Truck-Lite will enable a one-box solution to cover all lighting, harnessing and management integration.” Paul Lucchi, Director of Sales and Marketing said.

The TrailerMaster Junction Boxes will be available in Truck-Lite Europe trailer kits from June 2017.

“Our unique technology integrates and rationalises a number of electronic systems commonly fitted to trailers, reducing cost and complexity. We are especially proud of our Electronic Brake Performance Monitoring (EBPMS) feature which will reduce the challenge (and cost) of compliance whilst actually enhancing visibility over braking performance. We are delighted to partner with Truck-Lite Europe, a market leader in trailer lighting systems.” Tim Steer, Managing Director Axscend said.
