With the popularity and rise in real-time text-based communications, such as Facebook, Twitter, and instant messaging, came a new text language. This text language is designed for quick and compact communication.

The trucking industry has incorporated the use of this technology to help run fleets. It has made communication between drivers and the home terminal quicker and easier, but it has caused a great deal of confusion and questions. ¬†Using the text abbreviations doesn’t work unless both parties are familiar with the language.

Here is a list of regular, daily use text abbreviations to get started with learning the language of texting.
