SuperShuttle, ExecuCar Leverage Samsung Galaxy Tab

— September 22, 2011

Veolia Transportation has selected the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab on the Sprint network to be embedded into 1,000 SuperShuttle vans and ExecuCar sedans to support the communication efforts of Veolia’s 24/7 operation.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab will be preloaded with the Veolia Software Suite, giving managers access to analytical and reporting tools to track status of pickups and drop-offs, keep in constant contact with shuttle and sedan operators, ensure timely pickups using the available vehicle navigation, and provide customers with their vehicle’s location using built-in GPS.
“Today’s announcement is an exciting step for Samsung, Veolia and the future of transportation logistics,” Tim Wagner, vice president and general manager of enterprise sales for Samsung Mobile, said in a statement. “Veolia’s choice in selecting the 7-inch Samsung Galaxy Tab preloaded with customized content is illustrative of Samsung Mobile’s dedication to offering real-time enterprise solutions built to answer a variety of business needs.”
Veolia Transportation is the largest private sector operator of multiple modes of transit in North America, providing bus, rail, paratransit, shuttle, sedan and taxi services. SuperShuttle currently serves 33 airports, including Los Angeles, New York, Dallas/Fort Worth, Washington, D.C., and Miami, providing door-to-door ground transportation to more than eight million passengers per year.
