To meet the challenges of fleet management, operators are turning to mobility solutions to recruit, retain and manage drivers on the road.

Many drivers use mobile devices in their personal lives, so it makes sense to provide smartphones and tablets that align with what the drivers are already comfortable with. Drivers are adopting mobile devices for navigation, route management and to meet the Electronic Logging Device (ELD) mandate. These technologies help with retention by removing one of the biggest compliance headaches for drivers.

Fleet managers value mobility solutions that deliver navigation and route management functionality, with the ability to customize routing based on parameters such as load type, vehicle height and weight to find the most efficient route.

The Samsung Knox security platform allows fleets to customize and personalize devices so that drivers can use them for business and personal purposes, enabled by a secure work container to protect corporate data.

Samsung partners with an array of mobility solutions providers for software and hardware accessories. Samsung Business Services provides comprehensive support, including customer app development, mobile device management and tech support based on user strategies.
