Rein in Your Truck Toll Costs

Toll changes happen on the fly, but the actual bills often arrive weeks or months later. By then, most fleets lack a good way to reconcile toll data with dispatch data. As a result, fleets pay more for tolls than they should. Doing so can have a massive impact on the bottom line.
