Fleet news logo

Tracker is incorporating Red Forge technology into its Fleet Plus telematics system to provide optional weight alerts to customers, helping them to meet legal requirements and reduce vehicle damage.

Red Forge’s Axle Load Indicator has been designed to provide the driver of a vehicle with information to help prevent exceeding their legal weight limit.

Working closely with Red Forge, Tracker’s systems now transfer the vehicle overload data back to the fleet manager via the Tracker Fleet Plus system.

Staff receive an SMS or on screen alert, helping businesses stay in control of their fleet.

Phil Bridge, sales manager at Red Forge, said: “By joining forces we are delivering to Tracker customers vital weight information and alerts which will reduce the risk of fines and penalties and increase overall efficiency. 

“This is also an opportunity for us to bring our own customers Tracker’s telematics solution, enhancing our own fleet offering.”
