Ten Push To Talk Features Successful Transportation Companies Use Everyday

Transportation companies keep things moving. Whether it’s a bus company moving a group of people from one city to another, a long-haul trucking company transporting goods across the country, or a taxi company picking up a fare at the airport, these companies are relied on for nearly every aspect of life.

The key to keep things running smoothly for these transportation companies is fast reliable communication. Dispatch needs to communicate with their delivery drivers, taxi and ride share companies need to communicate with their passengers, trucking companies need to communicate with their warehouses and list goes on.

Transportation companies have been using push to talk technology for years. The problem with traditional two-way radio communication has always been its geographic limitations. Traditional LMR systems only have a range of 10 – 20 miles at most. Push to Talk over 4G LTE technology solves this problem by keeping companies connected to their fleets wherever there is a cellular signal, across the country or around the world.

The benefits of a nationwide push to talk solution don’t stop there. We have assembled a list of the top ten features of our push to talk platform that transportation companies use every day to increase productivity, improve driver safety, reduce costs and much more.
