Rugged mobile computers are ideal for transportation and distribution logistics—including planes, railroads, ships, trucks, and warehousing—by functioning seamlessly and withstanding harsh environments that would destroy commercial plastic laptops. The applications and benefits of rugged devices throughout the transportation and distribution industry casts a wide net. Truck drivers, for instance, can use rugged laptops to communicate with each other, streamle deliveries, and send arrival and departure information. Warehouse management, too, is turning to rugged tech to increase efficiency and accuracy.

Commercial mobile devices are no longer cutting it, as these industries are continuing to further rely on advanced applications and new digital technologies. Additionally, consumers and businesses alike are beginning to demand transparency and faster service, which rugged tech helps businesses accomplish. The lightweight, tough, and easy-to-use computers and gateways available from Group Mobile revolutionize the way the transportation and distribution industries operate.
