Best Selling Motorola Radios for the Forestry Industry

It comes as no surprise the forestry industry is one of Canada’s largest employers, providing nearly 900,000 direct and indirect jobs.

Not only does Canada’s forestry sector rely on two way radios to power in-the-bush communication, but forestry plants and operations – including wood, pulp for paper, industrial round wood, and more – rely heavily on portable two way radios for both enhanced productivity and safety in factory settings.

Forestry Communication Demands

This sector has both technical and physical requirements, ranging from operations in remote regions where commercial wireless systems are not available, to high-tech offices in metropolitan areas.

Facilities that handle and process forest products rely on radios to communicate, enhancing productivity and improving efficiency among employees. Safety is always top of mind with forestry plants. With dangers at every turn, communications is essential to keep the forestry workforce safe and to respond quickly when an incident happens.
