Terion Launches FleetView 3T

Terion launched FleetView 3T -- a product line extension specifically designed for managing tanker trailers. The FleetView 3 technology platform was developed to accommodate all kinds of asset types and to support many different sensors. The product is designed to gather information from cargo sensors, door sensors, Tractor ID devices, tire pressure sensors, and gas pressure sensors. The product communicates real-time trailer location and event status when the trailer is tethered or untethered, and provides an accurate record of loaded or unloaded status by way of a patented Cargo Sensor.
