Industry surveys estimate that roughly 60% of truck drivers use their mobile phone for work and they help to improve inefficiencies. Not only do they help us remain connected with our loved ones, but they can improve our safety and track our routes with weather condition updates and alerting capabilities.
Everything of course is very dependent on our personal mobile plans and service provider. We strongly recommend referencing your service plan and possibly negotiating with your provider for something financially suitable that fits with your lifestyle and allows you to use your phone wherever Your Lane takes you.
Here are some top mobile apps we are suggesting for truckers.
Skype is a free communication resource that allows you to chat, text, or video call with your family from anywhere in the world as long as you have a wifi connection. You can buy credits so you can make low-cost international calls.
TruckSmart is a free efficiency resource that allows you to pre-schedule work orders, check for parking availability with Plan2Park, pre-schedule showers with UltraONE, receive specials, directions, location amenities, and much more.
TurboScan is a free productivity resource that scans and organizes files, receipts, and any other documents that you may need high quality copies of for tracking or quickly emailing. The app easily imports to your laptop after scanning.
The Weather Network is a free resource that automatically updates current weather conditions and severe weather alerts. You can track up to 10 cities at once and will provide you with public safety warnings within those selected regions.
Hauler Challenge Journey to Homestead gives you the turn to drive your favorite NASCAR driving team and tractor-trailer to race for fastest time while keeping steady, driving smart and safely, and making every mph count.
