Manac collaborates on tech solution

North American trailer manufacturer, Manac, has collaborated with vehicle technology developer, ZF Group, to develop a new trailer telematics solution.

The two companies have launched transport solution, SmartHorizon, which they say creates seamless communication between trailers and third-party accessories.

“We’re excited to partner with Manac to take trailer technology to the next level,” said Vice President Key Account Management and Head of Trailer & Digital Sales for ZF Group, Benjamin Brown. “ZF and Manac are committed to offering high quality products and services and share a common vision to simplify the trailer telematics user experience for our valued fleet customers.”

SmartHorizon, Quebec-based Manac said, provides compatibility and real-time data exchange through advanced telematics and integrated sensors and can include, for example, cargo monitoring systems, tire pressure sensors and temperature control devices.

Fleet managers will be able to optimise operations, enhance safety and reduce downtime by integrating their preferred accessories. SmartHorizon offers:

  • Collection and analysis of data.
  • Alerts regarding maintenance.
  • Customisable interfaces.
  • Eco-friendly features
