Public transport is out of the question because it is a slower transport that takes more time to transport and therefore at the start is an option. Wondering what is the best option for taxi shipping? Sure, it’s Uber.

  2. Advanced features track the vehicle’s location as it moves – in addition to safety in terms of the application and its advanced features, Uber also boasts another advanced feature they have.  Wondering what it is?  This is the location monitoring of the vehicles. It is perhaps one of the smartest things that this company can do for its passengers, but also for its employees.  Thanks to the new technology, this company has successfully implemented smart GPS devices that always show and monitor the exact location of the vehicle. Initially, it is to always show the exact location for the passenger to know how far the vehicle is, and secondly to prevent loss of the driver in unknown areas or an accident such as a car accident so that the driver of the vehicle can be easily found.  This is a very useful option that is very helpful for the company but also good for the safety of the driver.

  3. Before a driver joins the Uber community, vehicle and driver reviews are done – it is very important for a company to set its operating conditions right from the start. Thus, it is important for Uber to make a thorough check of the vehicle and the driver at the very beginning before it starts driving passengers with the help of the unified application that this company uses. It starts with a driver review. The inspections are unified and specially designed for this company and are used with special techniques and technologies that help monitor the full and overall capacity of the driver.  Everything is checked from the aspect of health, psychology and of course from the aspect of other areas, which could give a complete picture of the driver. Next is an overview of the vehicle. Uber has a special computerized center where vehicles are checked to find out if everything is OK with the vehicle and if it is ready for the road and people can be transported with it. Once all this is done, a decision is made and if everything is in order, the driver can start driving passengers safely for himself and for them.
