TotalLink The Game Changer
An TotalLink RF tag is placed on every trailer or container, and a TotalHub with an TotalLink module is installed in every truck. In addition to sending the GPS position, driver behavior and via the air engine diagnostics the Piccolo Plus is also communicating wirelessly to the TotalLink placed on every trailer. The range of the RF communication is up to 250ft (70m) and is configurable for shorter range as needed. The TotalLink is sending attach and detach data to Fleet.Net via the Piccolo Plus that is adding to it the current date, time and GPS location data and sending it to the Fleet.net server so you know what asset was picked up and dropped off when and where and by what truck and/or driver. At the Fleet.net server you will have a view and can generate a print out of the last know location of every container and for how long it has been parked at that place.
