Many if not all of our customers require that we have mobile communication systems on our trucks. Whether it’s Qualcomm, PeopleNet, or another type of device, these systems are used to run our business more efficiently. The goal here is not to catch a driver doing something wrong. Instead, the goals are to provide 100% satisfaction for our customers, provide security and communication for our drivers, reduce empty miles, and properly price and account for the freight movement throughout the company.
The use of mobile communications on our trucks has many benefits, such as the following:
You will experience fewer dead spots than on cell phones.
It reduces the need to leave the truck to make a phone call.
All dispatch can be done with mobile communication.
It provides quick emergency communications support at any time.
It reduces fuel tax payments by establishing accurate fuel tax mileage reporting.
Drivers can obtain critical weather and directional information anywhere in North America.
It provides FREE email capability right from the cab of the truck.
It offers after-hours monitoring for emergencies through the Extended Services Dept. in Tampa.
Driver managers and drivers can share real-time information through the use of mobile communication. Drivers can quickly obtain or share a host of information, such as work order information, directions, weather reports, equipment problems, and emergency situations, right from the cab of their truck.
