Transparency within the supply chain

Kögel Telematics– the benefits at a glance!

  • Reduce operating costs
  • Increase efficiency
  • Transparency and optimisation of logistics processes
  • Transparency of vehicle status and availability
  • Checking and monitoring of loads, e.g., temperature of the goods
  • Important data from the trailer is displayed visually on the web-based telematics portal
  • Trailer monitoring for theft as a result of timely alarms or location tracking of the trailer

High level of economy, transport efficiency, quality and security

Kögel Telematics = Kögel Trailer telematics module + Kögel Telematics web-portal

With Kögel Telematics, you benefit from a low-cost, contemporary and reliable trailer telematics system. It provides real-time access * to GPS, cooling, trailer and EBS data to a clear and easy-to-use Kögel web portal. The Kögel trailer telematics module combines the telematics of the semi-trailer with the diagnostics of the brake system, while integrating other vehicle data into the evaluation.

The Kögel web portal or a fleet management system can be used to retrieve the following real-time data, in addition to the standard

„PosControl“ telematics data such as position determination, driving times, track routing and geofencing:

„EBSControl“ provides information from the electronic brake system (EBS) regarding RSS interventions, the kilometre reading, the speed, axle load, tyre pressure and brake wear.

„TrailerControl“ shows the current coupling status, the opening state of the doors and the battery status, as well as whether the ignition of the tractor unit is on or off.

„TempControl“ helps to monitor and control the temperature inside the refrigerated box vehicle and continuously monitors and documents the cooling chain, while also providing information about operating and service cycles.

* Depending on the transmission rate and technical requirements

How Telematics functions:

  • Trailer Telematics: the intelligent Kögel-communication-head office
  • Position data: tracking via satellite
  • Mobile radio data: Transmission of available trailer data via mobile radio towers
  • Mobile radio tower: Transmission of mobile radio data to the database server
  • Database server: Transmission and management of data on the web portal
  • Web portal: Important information in user overview, for example, the dispatcher or the administration of data in an ERP analytic database system or forwarding software
