Clear and absolutely simple identification of trailer axles via NFC.

With the help of Near Field Communication (NFC), an international transmission standard based on RFID technology, SAF axles can now be easily identified via smartphone.

Once scanned, you can retrieve all specific data of this axle, such as technical documentation or a specific part number for your spare parts order with just a few clicks.

For this purpose, the hubcaps of SAF axles are equipped with NFC chips which allow a unique identification of the axle.


  • SAF axle with NFC hub cap
  • NFC-enabled smartphone with installed SH Connect app (available free of charge in App Store and Google Play Store).
  • Personal registration in the SAF-HOLLAND I.Q. Portal

Technology Advantages

  • Simple and quick identification of the trailer axle
  • Specific product information
  • Simple spare part identification 
  • Time and cost savings through effective part identification
  • In the event of a lost / defective hubcap all axle information can be linked to the new hubcap in no time at all using the SH Connect App.
