Announced on-stage during Geotab Connect 2020, Drivewyze PreClear weigh station bypass service is available on the Geotab Marketplace integrates with Geotab’s telematics solution to help businesses improve fleet performance by providing bypass opportunities at weigh stations.
Weigh stations and roadside inspection sites provide a critical function by ensuring trucks are compliant with the size, weight and safety standards set by Commercial Vehicle Enforcement (CVE) agencies in state and provincial jurisdictions throughout North America. Requiring all trucks to stop however, may increase freight costs through decreased driver and fleet productivity, while putting a potential burden on roadside CVE stations which may not have the resources to screen every vehicle.
Drivewyze, one of North America’s largest weigh station bypass service providers, helps fleets and drivers save time and money by providing bypass at more than 800 sites in 47 states and provinces. Depending on their safety record, carriers may reach a bypass rate of more than 90 percent in some locations.
“Not needing to stop or slow down at weigh stations helps fleets save fuel and maximize on-duty drive time,” said Brian Heath, President of Drivewyze. “We are excited to join the Geotab Marketplace with a driver-centric, single sign-on integration that gives drivers full access to our service network. We are confident that this partnership will help make it easier for safety-focused commercial vehicle operators to access the largest electronic pre-screening and clearance services network in Canada and the United States without the need to install additional equipment in their trucks.”
