DPL Telematics MultiTrack System for Trailers, Smaller Assets

DPL Telematics' MultiTrack is a portable, battery-powered GPS tracking unit that installs in seconds and requires no external power or wiring. It lets equipment owners wirelessly monitor and track any powered or unpowered asset to help recover stolen property, improve logistics and manage inventory. 


The MultiTrack allows managers to remotely monitor any asset accurately from an internet-based software package or mobile app. MultiTrack notifies whenever the host asset begins moving as well as on demand and alerts during customer-defined curfews whenever there is unauthorized activity. The unit features:

  • No external wiring or antenna; “slap and track" installation
  • Up to 16 weeks of internal battery life between charges; recharges in 3 hours via wall plug
  • Little to no sky view required
  • Rugged, SAE J1455 compliant waterproof design
  • Compact and complete portability so you can move it from asset to asset

For a semi-permanent trailer tracking installation, an optional wiring harness may be used to extend the battery life. As a trailer tracking solution, the system is wired to the tail light circuitry to automatically charge whenever the trailer is hitched. When disconnected from power the unit uses its internal battery to communicate location, speed, travel time, route, unauthorized movement and tow alerts. The resulting combination powers intelligent, real time fleet management decisions for superior dispatching with improved pickup and delivery logistics, while decreasing trailer theft and misuse.

“MultiTrack revolutionizes GPS tracking as it exists today, allowing anybody to easily track any asset, regardless of its power source. Since it is a true portable product, the unit may be moved between assets quickly and without any wiring,” said Tony Nicoletti, Director of Strategy and Business Development at DPL Telematics. “MultiTrack’s minimal install time now puts accurate location data within reach of those managers seeking to decrease their loss exposure, better manage asset inventories and improve logistics.”

“The market has been seeking an affordable, quick installing tracking solution for smaller and ancillary assets such as light plants, message boards, trailers, as well as older and smaller equipment that cannot accommodate an advanced telematics solution.” added Nicoletti. “With MultiTrack’s portability, a customer may easily transfer units within their fleet as needed rather than permanently mounting a dedicated system on every asset.”
