How to leverage technology to stay connected with your family while on the road

by | Mar 5, 2019

The Transportation industry is a 24/7 business, and it’s up to the drivers to keep our industry moving and growing. In today’s professional workspace, technology has opened many communication possibilities to keep you connected with your family, friends, and coworkers. Nowadays, truck drivers can drive long distances, run more miles and stay in touch with their loved ones while they are out on the road. If leveraged correctly, technology has the powerful ability to influence, support and improve communication with your family and friends. It can help engage, recognize and protect those we care about and the people who work in the same organizations.

New technology makes it easier to keep in contact with family members, so it’s possible to have an extended connection with them regularly. Holding a cellular phone is essential to the job for reporting problems with the truck or delivery, keeping in contact with dispatch, and for contacting the shipper. Trucking companies like Mesilla Valley Transportation understand the importance of having a balance between your personal and professional life.

Social Media channels were designed to keep people in touch regardless of distance, platforms like Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Youtube and Twitter allow our drivers to stay in touch with family, friends, and co-workers.  For example, Facebook enables truck drivers to message, video call and send pictures using cellular data or WiFi for free.

The constant digital growth creates endless opportunities for truck drivers to interact with their families on social media and us. Being present where drivers are present is an essential element in our communication strategy, we utilize our social media channels to promote services, driver’s appreciation day, and valuable content for both clients and employees.

At the same time, these platforms allow our truck drivers to meet and network with others and talk and share experiences with other drivers who understand the trucking lifestyle.
