We initially started using Axscend TrailerMaster about 3 years ago.  We have been so happy with the complete system, that we have continued to have this fitted to all of our trailers.  The downtime saved is immense, with not having to wait for loaded brake tests.  We will continue to have this system fitted going forward until our entire fleet has it.  Giving us the peace of mind that the brakes are working.

”We are a business that is centred around delivering industry-leading technologies and compliance for our customers, therefore we felt incredibly aligned with TrailerMaster and what they had to offer through their telematics solution. The implementation of the TrailerMaster EBPMS System into our trailers will provide our customers further peace of mind when it comes to their vehicle fleet. Our highly rated, customer focused approach is embedded in the way we work. We understand that trust is vital to achieving success.
Now we have the ability to check the performance of our brakes in real-time, whenever we need to, which I believe adds to this trust.”

Assessing braking performance is a key part of any fleet maintenance regime – so when presented with the opportunity to do so on an on-going basis, as opposed to roller brake testing, for significantly less cost – we were incredibly pleased to say the least. We were particularly impressed with not only how user-friendly the system was, but that I could examine each and every braking event, in great detail, providing me with an incredible level of insight. This insight allows greater compliance and safety among my fleet, which is the most important thing.

Taking Trailermasters’ EBPMS system was an easy decision for us. It helps us to stay compliant & removes the need for roller brake testing.
After trialling the TrailerMaster system we were really impressed with its functionality, particularly how intuitive & user friendly it was to navigate.
Upon placing the order, the response times were fantastic and we were up and running in a matter of days.

“TrailerMaster gives us a wealth of information about our trailers and our trailer utilisation. I can track the vehicle, see when it was loaded, how long it was idle for and when it has reached its destination. Another key feature for us is the real-time information on trailer weight which means we can see when a trailer is loaded/unloaded and ensures we remain compliant on payload.”
The theme of compliance is one which Nick Waller singles out as a primary benefit of using the TrailerMaster system, “For me it’s proven invaluable from a compliance point of view”, he says.
Waller continued, “Every morning we can run a report which gives us a snapshot of all key trailer information: weights, brake efficiency, trailer condition. I can identify faults before the driver notices, get them into the workshop sooner and get it sorted. It has reduced our downtime, because it gives us the reliable information needed to localise and identify issues before they occur. I can get ahead of the problem rather than behind the problem.”

TrailerMaster EBPMS® or Electronic Brake Performance Monitoring System forms a key part of this reliable information by providing dynamic, live monitoring of trailer braking performance. EBPMS has been included in the DVSA’s Guide to Roadworthiness, which was written in association with Axscend, the company behind TrailerMaster. Nick Waller remarked, “For us we want every job to be as safe and efficient as possible and with TrailerMaster we can go above and beyond. We are looking forward to a long and successful partnership with them.”

”The Axscend TrailerMaster portal is really easy to navigate. Providing us with real-time tracking information and Electronic Brake Performance Monitoring means we always know where our trailers are, and we have peace of mind when it comes to the safety of the trailers brakes. It also means we are saving time & money by not having to roller brake test all our trailers yet still remain compliant with DVSA.

After an initial trial we also opted for Tyre Pressure Monitoring sensors, this has proven to be very cost effective.
The system alerted us to a sudden loss of pressure and upon inspection we found sidewall damage that we just wouldn’t have picked up previously. This would have resulted in a roadside blow-out and been very costly, as it was we replaced the tyre and the trailer was back in use.

The team at Axscend have been great to work with, In particular Duncan Ryan (Engineer) is a great lad and really helpful, he worked with us to get all the trailers fitted and made sure we knew how everything worked. I’m really pleased with our investment in the TrailerMaster system so far.”
