Today is October 25th, 2017. Two stolen trailers recovered quickly on the same day by using trailer GPS tracking units. Two different customers contacted GPS and Track letting us know their trailers were stolen. Because the stolen trailers were protected with GPS tracking units, we were able to put the trailer GPS tracker into aggressive tracking mode. Within a few hours, our customers were able to contact the authorities and recover both stolen trailers the same day.
The first stolen trailer was located just a few miles from where it was stolen. The second trailer stolen was actually a few hundred miles away in a different state. This is pretty unique. Typically the stolen assets recovered are within a close perimeter. The stolen trailer was taken to Pennsylvania and hidden behind an hold barn. It’s difficult to hide from GPS signals. The signals pinpoint the exact location which allows a quick recovery of the trailer.
The question we get all the time is, “won’t the thieves just take off the trailer tracker?” This scenario rarely happens because the device blends into the trailer and is very easy to conceal. It attaches almost anywhere.
The TTU-720 trailer tracking unit is manufactured by Cal-Amp. This tracking device is unique because it has a 5 year battery life and no wires. The device is easy to install and was created to handle any weather conditions. It updates daily and can be put into aggressive tracking mode if a trailer is stolen. It makes protecting and monitoring assets easy. As long as you have the ability to access the internet, you can track your assets.
