Q. What is Hendrickson’s position in the trailer telematics world?

A. Of course, as fleets begin to use telematics to move from traditionally reactive to more proactive maintenance strategies, it is important to emphasize that preventative maintenance and predictive maintenance are not the same. While sensing technology can provide a way to detect potential issues early to avoid downtime, a good preventative maintenance program can help minimize fleets’ exposure to these potential issues in the first place. Hendrickson believes sensing technology is not a replacement for a good preventative maintenance program; rather, it should complement a pre-established preventative maintenance routine.

From our perspective, we understand the value and benefit that component monitoring can bring, and we are working with fleets to understand the technical and logistical challenges that arise with the process of tracking, collecting, transmitting, and consuming big data.

As part of our development initiatives, we are striving to create sensor hardware that interfaces flawlessly with data collection software to ensure that information is processed and disseminated in a meaningful, usable way. In addition to understanding system integration, we have invested considerable time and effort in tackling concerns related to the durability and life of the physical sensor itself: battery life, exposure to the elements and other road inputs, and transmissions capability.

As the trailer industry moves inevitably towards a new age of on-demand connectivity, Hendrickson will move with it by providing robust sensor technology solutions to help fleets achieve their goal of increased productivity, efficiency, and uptime.
