East Manufacturing has announced that the Road ready trailer telematics system from Truck-Lite is now an optional feature available on all East flatbed, dump and refuse trailers.
Road Ready provides fleets with remote visibility into a trailer’s location, freight and equipment health in real time. The Road Ready’s hardwired master control unit serves as the telematic brain of the system, as well as the Light-Out Detection System nosebox and ABS warning sensor.
New for 2020, East trailer models now have an option of the Truck-Lite Master Control Unit, which sends regular updates to the Road Ready user interface and provides real time location via GPS. Data plans and additional sensors will be available through Truck-Lite.
“Truck-Lite is pleased to continue its long-term partnership with East, first through harness and lighting systems, and now through trailer telematics technology,” said Jon Stineman, vice president of OEM sales for Truck-Lite. “Truck-Lite provides the most dependable electrical products to the heavy-duty market and we’re proud to deliver this technology to East customers.”
