ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA & PHOENIX, ARIZONA, August 13, 2018 – The American Trucking Associations has renewed HELP Inc.’s PrePass services as an Endorsed ATA Featured Product.
“In order to keep the economy running efficiently and ensure on-time deliveries, the trucking industry strives to reduce truck downtime,” said ATA President and CEO Chris Spear. “Being able to bypass weigh stations using pre-screening tools or streamline the toll payment task allows our trucks to maximize efficiency.”
PrePass is a weigh station bypass platform offered throughout North America. According to HELP Inc., PrePass allows qualified commercial vehicles with good safety scores and current credentials to bypass hundreds of inspection facilities using a secure, hands-free in-cab electronic device.
Within seconds of approaching a PrePass-equipped site, the service automatically pre-screens vehicles and notifies drivers if they are cleared to stay on the road and bypass truck scales or if they need to pull in for inspection.
HELP also offers electronic toll payment options though PrePass Plus. INFORM, included in both services, is a comprehensive data management suite that assists fleets in accessing and understanding their inspection, bypass and tolling data so that they can quickly take action to improve safety scores and reduce operating costs.
“In the age of the electronic logging device and rising fuel costs, the trucking industry needs to save time and money without sacrificing highway safety. Safe weigh station bypassing means significant savings that flow directly to a carrier’s bottom line,” said HELP Inc. CEO Karen Rasmussen.
A complete list of ATA Featured Product companies is available online or by calling 866-821-3468.
PrePass is provided by HELP Inc. a non-profit organization focused on highway safety and freight efficiency. Since 1993, HELP has invested more than $700 million to deploy its weigh station bypassing services along with other truck safety technologies.
The American Trucking Associations is the largest national trade association for the trucking industry. Through a federation of 50 affiliated state trucking associations and industry-related conferences and councils, ATA is the voice of the industry America depends on most to move our nation’s freight.
