FedEx is testing a wireless system designed to free its drivers from having to return to their trucks to get information or receive new pick-up requests. The test includes AT&T Wireless' GPRS network and Bluetooth connections between a driver's handheld device and a smart phone, and will tell a driver about pick-up requests in a building in which he's making a delivery.
