What can Intelligent Trailer Program Load Optimization provide?

The weight and distribution of cargo on the trailer has implications for safety, driver comfort, fuel efficiency and maintenance. This suite of trailer functions helps to prevent trailer overload and also to optimize cargo distribution and vehicle stability throughout the journey for the best possible performance. ​



Automated load control to avoid overload on the fifth wheel
  • Measures the weight on the trailer axles and automatically lifts the last axle of the trailer if the first and second axles are not fully loaded
  • Automatically respects the total permitted weight per trailer axle
  • Helps to optimize load distribution to its maximum allowed capacity
  • Reduces risk of damage to the truck's drive axle caused by overload
  • Helps to avoid penalties from overload on truck’s drive axle
  • OptiLoad is integrated in Trailer EBS
  • Can be retrofitted with Trailer EBS E Premium version 1 or higher
  • Unique solution when used in combination with OptiTurn

Overload Indicator

Increases operating efficiency and safety by measuring the load on axles
  • Continuously measures pressure in the air suspension at low speed and standstill to ensure it remains within programmed values
  • Increases operating efficiency and safety by measuring axle loads and warning of overload
  • Overload alert indicated on an external lamp or on SmartBoard
  • Trailer axle load levels are displayed on the SmartBoard, via OptiLink or in the TX-TRAILERGUARD telematics portal
  • Maximizes trailer load while avoiding overload penalties
  • Monitor loading status from the safety and comfort of the truck cabin

Air Bellows Protector

Keeps the wheels of your tag axles on the ground
  • Helps avoid damage to air bellows by keeping the wheels of your tag axles on the ground
  • Leverages Trailer EBS to maintains residual pressure helping avoid tire bounce and wear while increasing component life
  • A pressure sensor positioned at the tag axle continually measures the actual pressure in the tag axle bellows
  • Helps to save repair costs by avoiding bouncing, oscillating and cramping of air bellows
  • Reduces the number of components required to monitor and maintain pressure levels
  • Can be retrofitted up from Premium TEBS E2

Forklift Control

Enhances trailer stability while driving and detaching forklifts
  • Keeps the load balanced on central-axle trailers when a forklift is coupled or uncoupled
  • A switch detects the docking status of the forklift
  • Balances the cargo load on central axle trailers by moving the wheelbase backwards or forward
  • Provides a more stable and comfortable drive as the central axle trailer does not force the truck up or down
