TrackWare combines GPS and wireless messaging to track mobile assets. According to @Track, a TrackWare remote unit can be installed by one person in as little as 30 minutes. The remote unit mounts on the outside of a trailer.
The battery, which powers a unit for 30 to 60 days, automatically recharges when connected to a tractor. Units can report trailer location up to four times every 24 hours. They can also report location each time a trailer is connected or disconnected, loaded or unloaded, and when the door opens or closes.
Besides TrackWare, @Track markets the HighwayMaster mobile communications system.
Garner Transportation Group is a family-owned carrier with 80 company trucks and over 225 trailers.
