ConMet Digital partners with Stephens Pneumatics to supply telematics for new tank trailer builds
Vancouver, WA January 10, 2023 – ConMet Digital is pleased to announce a partnership with Stephens Pneumatics, a manufacturer of highly customized tank trailers, transporters, and vehicle beds, to supply fleet telematics systems for new tank trailer builds. Starting immediately, fleets have the option to add any ConMet Digital data solution to new tank trailer orders from Stephens Pneumatics.
The partnership is built upon a foundation of shared goals and values. Both companies are known for a unique focus on making the roads safer through a combination of high-quality products, attentive and customized service, and innovative solutions.
“We are excited to offer our customers the added visibility and safety benefits that ConMet Digital data solutions provide,” said Stephens Pneumatics President, Stan Stephens. “The ConMet Digital services complement our high level of expertise, reliability, and service that our clients have come to associate with the Stephens name.”
The ConMet Digital suite of products provides fleet managers, drivers, and dispatchers with real-time visibility of a vehicle, including critical component condition and asset location:
The PreSet Plus® SmartHub™ telematics solution provides fleets visibility into the condition of the wheel end ecosystem, including hubs, tires, and brakes. Real-time alerts of any abnormalities give drivers or maintenance managers a chance to act before roadside repairs, thermal events, and wheel-offs happen.
SmartTrack™ asset management provides accurate, up-to-the-minute GPS location to maximize productivity and monitor driver behavior. This solution provides insights such as asset speed and elevation, total distance traveled, and custom geofence alerts. The GPS location can help quickly find drivers that have been in an accident and aid in theft recovery, elevating safety and security.
The SmartAir™ TPMS sends alerts when tire pressure falls outside of a predetermined pressure range, helping fleets make more informed tire maintenance decisions to extend tire life, improve fuel efficiency, and increase safety.
SmartAir™ line pressure monitoring from ConMet Digital provides real-time visibility into emergency brake air pressure status. With this solution fleets and drivers can easily view alerts and analyze trend data during pre-trip or maintenance checks and, while in motion, take quick corrective action to optimize emergency brake performance.
The SmartAir™ axle load solution provides real-time air-suspension-based axle load monitoring. Alerts enable pre-trip load adjustments to reduce over-weight fines and violations.
Fleets are seamlessly connected to actionable intelligence through a single-screen experience, accessible through the user’s preferred dashboard on computer, tablet, or smartphone. The ConMet Digital dashboard allows fleet managers, maintenance managers, or dispatchers to access real-time insights, notification history, and historical trends of multiple assets in one location, while the ConMet Digital Driver Mobile Application assists with pre-trip inspections and sends drivers real-time alerts when action is needed on the road. Users can also set alerts to distribute via email and SMS text message.
“Our goal at ConMet Digital is to help fleets make data-driven decisions that lead to improvements in utilization, uptime, safety, and maintenance,” said Paul Washicko, Vice President and General Manager of ConMet Digital. “We’re proud to partner with Stephens and together be able to meet the unique needs of the tanker trailer segment where safety is a top priority.”
