Now available on demand!
In freight transportation, smart phones and tablets are not just commonplace but inevitable. For both drivers on the road and managers in the office, you’re not likely to see such a person without one, the other or both.
Join Fleet Owner on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 2 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT, to learn about the essential nature of mobile communications for drivers and fleet managers.
For drivers the appeal is easy. They can use phones and tablets to keep in touch with people at home and, with the same device, help make their professional lives more efficient with the swarm of applications now available.
Managers are finding they can do almost as much with a phone or tablet as with a laptop or desktop. They’re no longer glued to their desks but can wander around a terminal or meet with customers and still keep the fleet rolling.
