Bypass Weigh Stations with the PrePass app
PrePass provides states a proven tool to preclear qualified commercial motor carriers to safely bypass ports of entry and weigh facilities at highway speeds. The benefit of legally passing weigh stations without stopping minimizes delays in freight movement while saving PrePass carriers time, fuel and money. Over 700,000 commercial vehicles from more than 80,000 fleets utilize PrePass services, based on their safety compliance and up-to-date credentials.
Well before approaching a PrePass-equipped inspection facility, PrePass’ electronic pre-screening quickly lets drivers know whether they’re cleared to stay on the road and bypass the weigh facility at highway speed, or if they need to slow down and pull in. The PrePass app on the Geotab Drive platform uses a cellular connection to provide carriers and their drivers with weigh station bypassing as well as in-vehicle driver safety alerts.
Get More Features with PrePass
PrePass ALERTS is a passive notification safety feature that supports existing road signage. Commercial drivers receive ALERTS indicating work zones ahead, gusty wind areas, steep grades, no commercial vehicle roads and more.
Customers using the PrePass app with Geotab have the option to add electronic toll payment services with PrePass Plus, an RFID-based service available only through PrePass. All PrePass services include access to PrePass INFORM™ software. INFORM helps motor carriers analyze bypass and toll activity to spot trends, improve safety scores, reduce the risk of toll fraud and provide new data insights into their operations.
“As for recruiting drivers, PrePass is one of the enticements, or carrots, we use along with having Geotab for hours of service logging and being a family-owned business.”
