Agreement Extends Nextel’s Solution Portfolio to Long-Haul Trucking, Offers Advanced Wireless Solutions at Affordable Prices for Small and Medium-Sized Transportation Firms

LAS VEGAS, Nev., RESTON, Va., and BLOOMFIELD, Conn. – October 4, 2004 – Today at the annual ATA Management Conference and Exhibition, Nextel Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: NXTL) announced it has teamed with Prophesy Transportation Solutions, Inc. to deliver new, low-cost wireless dispatch solutions to the long-haul trucking market. The agreement underscores Nextel’s commitment to, and leadership in, providing wireless business solutions that enable transportation and logistics firms to synchronize and speed deliveries, increase productivity and accuracy, and reduce operational costs.

The two companies will bring to market new GPS-enabled mobile resource management solutions based on Prophesy’s top-selling Prophesy DispatchSeries™ software. Delivered over Nextel’s digital nationwide wireless network on Nextel handsets, these wireless data solutions enable drivers and dispatchers to share and update itinerary, load and job status information paper free, while providing real-time shipment tracking and route mapping, all at breakthrough price points.

“The combination of Prophesy and Nextel represents a technological breakthrough for the trucking industry, while also shattering the price barrier historically associated with ‘in-cab’ mobile communications solutions,” said William Ashburn, vice president, Prophesy. “Nextel is the carrier of choice for the majority of our more than 12,000 customers; its leadership in customer service, innovation and market understanding makes Nextel a natural fit for our solutions.”

Added Henry Popplewell, vice president of transportation, distribution and retail industries at Nextel, “Extending Prophesy DispatchSeries software to the Nextel platform will help small and mid-sized fleets ‘play big’ against the competition. Together, our companies are delivering a comprehensive mobile resource management solution that will integrate easily with back office systems, increasing the velocity of shipments and quality of customer service. Our combined efforts are helping turn the wireless handset into one of long-haul trucking’s most powerful supply chain tools.”
