Contract Extension Maintains Drivewyze Bypass Service

We’re pleased that our application will help J.B. Hunt Transport Service drivers keep their trucks rolling and making money after the company extended its contract for telematics services with PeopleNet. Drivers will continue to receive bypasses based on the strength of J.B. Hunt’s CSA scores and FMCSA safety record through our weigh station bypass service.

As reported in the November 2016 issue of Commercial Carrier Journal, J.B. Hunt chose to extend its electronic logging device contract with our friends at PeopleNet for another two years to meet the federal ELD mandate. J.B. Hunt announced the extension at the recent PeopleNet User Conference held in Nashville, Tennessee. Drivewyze is offered as an integrated optional service on PeopleNet devices.

That’s great news for J.B. Hunt drivers who’ve come to count on Drivewyze to stay productive. We’re heartened that companies like J.B. Hunt recognize that by reducing delays, they can improve driver satisfaction. Time and time again, we’ve heard this not only from fleets, but also from drivers. We’re also pleased that J.B. Hunt will be providing its drivers in-cab navigation with CoPilot Truck from ALK Technologies to help them find and plan the best routes.
