Help keep your organization connected and on track with these rugged Samsung devices.

 

The transportation industry is a network of logistics. From picking up cargo at a warehouse, to hooking up a trailer to the truck, to the trip itself and its drop-off points, transportation companies need technology that helps them stay competitive and efficient. To meet electronic logging device (ELD) requirements, companies need reliable devices. This lineup of Samsung rugged devices (Tab Active Pro, Tab Active2, Galaxy XCover Pro) is durable and comes with defence-grade security, giving you solutions that can be combined with ELD software to help keep your team moving.

Reliable manageability of your device fleet

It’s a challenge for businesses to manage a fleet of devices on top of vehicles. The IT department needs to ensure drivers not only have the right equipment with the right software but that there is a convenient mass-deployment solution for their fleet of devices. With ELD required by government regulation in all commercial vehicles used for trucking, businesses in transportation have had to move away from pen and paper, to use tools that update log data accurately and securely.

Using Samsung Knox Suite (including Knox Manage, Knox Platform for Enterprise, Knox Mobile Enrollment, and Knox E-FOTA)[1] on the Samsung rugged lineup, IT admin can remotely enroll, configure, and manage the fleet of devices with consistency and ease. They can also help ensure that any important device software has been properly installed. Enjoy added peace of mind with Knox Security, a combination of overlapping defence and security mechanisms that better protects business data against intrusion, malware, and malicious threats. Plus, when you add Knox Manage,[2] your IT team can remotely wipe a device in the event it is lost or stolen.

 

Durable and rugged

Long hauls require equipment that can withstand harsh environments. Drivers need a device that is tough enough to keep up with them while conducting truck inspections at checkpoints, or going in and out of warehouses amidst heavy cargo and machinery. The Samsung lineup of rugged devices are tested against military standard MIL-STD-810G,[³] meaning they are able to withstand drops, shocks, vibrations, and extreme temperatures. Plus, the IP68 rating[4] makes these devices resistant to dust and water, to help your team work through inclement weather. With the enhanced touch sensitivity,[5] drivers can also scroll through delivery updates or directions with their gloves on, keeping warm in cold weather.

 

ELD requirements mean that data must be logged at all times on the route. When your ELD device stops working, drivers must also stop to get the device back up and running. That time loss can cost businesses – delayed ETA for the customer, insurance, salary, and general inefficiencies. The Samsung lineup of rugged devices come with long-lasting batteries[6] which can also be easily swapped out, so that drivers can have access to an extra battery on hand if their device runs out of power during a trip.

The Galaxy XCover Pro, Galaxy Tab Active Pro, and Galaxy Tab Active2 are available at Samsung Experience Stores in Canada, or online at shop.samsung/ca. Corporate orders can be placed through distributor/reseller channels as well as our online SMB store.
