Omnitracs partners with PrePass Safety Alliance on integrated solution

Omnitracs and the PrePass Safety Alliance announced a new partnership that allow fleets to bypass weigh stations through the Omnitracs One platform. Weigh station bypass information will be available with all other fleet activity, on a converged platform, the companies say.

Per the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, preliminary inspections cost a fleet five minutes of drive time and 0.4 gallons of fuel per truck. More importantly, secondary inspections cost 30 minutes of drive time and raise the risk of potential violations and out-of-service notifications. According to the Alliance, PrePass trucks bypass an open, working weigh station, on average, 12.3 times per month, saving a typical 100-truck fleet more than $128,000 each year, PrePass shares.

With the PrePass application, drivers are informed of an upcoming weigh station when crossing a geofence threshold two miles out. PrePass then verifies the carrier credentials, safety scores and vehicle weights, where available, to determine the bypass decision. Drivers receive notification on Omnitracs One to bypass or pull into the weigh station, all while the truck travels at highway speed. In addition, fleets receive mobile safety Alerts for work zones, traffic congestion, crashes ahead, brake checks, runaway ramps, traffic incidents, rest areas, gusty winds, steep grades, truck parking, weather alerts and no commercial vehicle areas, according to the companies.
