Spireon Launches Next Generation IntelliScan Cargo Sensor, Introducing a New Perspective on Load Status and Available Trailer Capacity
IntelliScan ProView calculates the trailer’s volumetric fill and remaining floor space with benefits for TL, LTL and Private Fleets
IRVINE, Calif. & WESTLAKE, Texas–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Spireon, a Solera company, is introducing the next generation of IntelliScan cargo sensor under its FleetLocate® product line: IntelliScan ProView. The enhanced cargo sensor changes the carrier’s view of available cargo space with 99% accurate load status plus the trailer’s used cubic volume and floor space percentages. Images from inside the trailer are also available for download, with the proven ability to retrieve images at scale.
“It used to be enough to just report accurate trailer load status, but today, with higher freight volumes and the lack of trailers, all carriers are looking for more trailer capacity,” said Roni Taylor, Senior Vice President of Strategy, Spireon. “Spireon is giving carriers the ability to be more efficient and haul more freight with the trailers they have today.”
Using IntelliScan ProView:
- Truckload carriers can see open space in their trailers for additional back haul opportunities and more revenue
- LTL carriers can better plan their trailer load cube and move more freight per trailer while educating the dock team to learn best practices for loading
- Private fleets can manage inventory in storage trailers and identify backfill opportunities for incremental revenue
Each ProView cargo sensor is equipped with state-of-the-art optical recognition and proprietary machine learning technology producing the highest accuracy in the industry. It takes periodic measurements of the surrounding trailer space and sends “percent full” and “percent of used floor space” readings back to the fleet manager’s FleetLocate interface.
“IntelliScan ProView helps us cut costs and that’s the name of the game,” said Brian Morris, Operations Asset Manager, Magnum Less-Than-Truckload. “Now we know if the trailers are fully loaded or if there is an opportunity to add more freight so we can eliminate unnecessary trips. We also see how the freight is being loaded and make sure we’re using the proper tools to secure it and eliminate damage.”
The ProView cargo sensor is mounted at the rear of the trailer and provides a complete view into the trailer during the loading process. When combined with cargo load status detection and downloadable images, ProView provides a comprehensive picture of every trailer’s capacity. This makes it easier to fully utilize all available cargo space.
“ProView is in part a response from what we’ve been hearing from our customers and trailer fleet managers,” said Taylor. “With today’s trailer shortage, utilizing every trailer to its fullest is more important to them than ever. So, we’ve expanded on our technology to deliver more detailed information about a trailer’s floor space. The better the data and visual information, the easier it is for them to get the most out of the trailers they have.”
