At Smith Transport, we like to keep our drivers happy and on the road making money. A good way to do just that is to keep up-to-date with new technological advances. We use an advanced maintenance schedule and top-tier diagnostics to keep our fleet rolling strong, while utilizing the latest forms of communication and tracking to stay on time. But what about truck drivers themselves? What’s the best way for them to stay in touch with one another and in tune with developments on the road?
One great way for drivers to stay in touch is the use of mobile apps. We recently came across Truck Chat. This application is simple to use and contains all sorts of solid tools for truck drivers.
Particularly, it offers the opportunity to communicate with other users to share information on road accidents, best rest stops, places to eat, and even calls for help. Of course, this isn’t for use while you’re driving. Safety is first and foremost, so taking a look at Truck Chat before a trip or during a break can help you best optimize your routes.
It offers tools similar to the good ole CB, but more advanced. It goes with you everywhere and it’s not limited by range. All you need is a decent connection to your favorite wireless network. What’s even better is that the app is free! The reviews we’ve seen say it’s easy to use and super useful in action. Check it out and see what you find to make your driving experience the best it can be.
Speaking of trucking at its best, you’ll drive with top trucking professionals when you drive for Smith! If you’re looking to join our fleet, we’re always looking for good talent from reliable drivers. Just take a moment to give us a shout at 866-265-3718 or mosey over to our website to apply online.
