Steps to establish the integration

  1. Contact your Frotcom Certified Partner to request a Connection ID for your fleet. You should share the VIN (chassis number) for each trailer, so that those trailers can be provisioned on Frotcom Platform;
  2. With the obtained Connection ID, you need to create the connection in TrailerConnect:
    1. Go to the DMC top-level menu option, Data sharing, and select Export accounts tab. Then, click the button + (plus button on the right) to add an export account. In the dialog box, provide a name for the Export account and select the provider Frotcom Fleet Manager. Then select the sensors that should be exported (we recommend all) and, in the Custom Properties > Account ID, enter the Connection ID provided by your Frotcom Certified Partner.
    2. Then, go to the Export endpoints tab and select the correct export account (using the name you defined before). In the configuration panel, select the data and vehicles to be shared.

For more information, please contact your Frotcom Certified Partner.
