MINNEAPOLIS, Minn – PeopleNet, a provider of fleet mobility solutions, today announced a new partnership with Drivewyze for improving driver efficiency, regulatory compliance and safety. WhenPeopleNet’s GPS and mobile communication technologies are integrated with Drivewyze PreClear it offers hands-free delivery of the weigh station bypass service.
Drivewyze PreClear lets the driver know through the in-cab communications device when the vehicle is approaching a weigh station. If the carrier and vehicle pass criteria established by each state enforcement agency, including safety scores, registration and IFTA tax compliance, the driver receives permission to bypass the inspection site. If there is an issue, the driver is signaled to pull-in.
“PeopleNet’s decision to become a reseller of Drivewyze PreClear through this agreement demonstrates its commitment to providing fleets mobility solutions that can leverage their safety and compliance investments to reduce operating costs,” said Brian Heath, president of Drivewyze. “With PeopleNet’s integrated bypass service, fleets can eliminate the need to manage multiple vendor accounts and costly transponders, while accessing a more comprehensive service site footprint including temporary inspection sites. An FMCSA study demonstrated that one weigh station stop made formeven 5 minutes can save a carrier $8.68 in fuel and time. So, the ability to bypass unnecessary inspections generates tremendous ROI.”
