TMC’s Magazine Features Mobile-Based Weigh Station Bypass and Drivewyze
TMC members are finding that mobile technology like that found in Drivewyze PreClear can make all of their hard work in keeping vehicles well-maintained pay off through weigh station bypass.
The Fall 2013 issue of the American Trucking Associations’ Technology and Maintenance Council (TMC) magazine Fleet Maintenance and Technology features a technology profile on how mobile technology makes weigh station bypass opportunities convenient and more affordable.
“TMC members work hard to keep their vehicles ahead of the game in maintenance and repairs — to ensure safe and compliant trucks,” Drivewyze president Brian Heath says in the magazine article that’s published on pages 16-17. “Their investment in safety should be recognized and bypassing does just that. What’s more, it benefits our industry as a whole — it frees front-line inspection officers to focus their attention on the trucks that need inspections and reduces congestion at inspection sites.”
Commercial Mobile Radio Service (CMRS) transponder technology is a game-changer for the trucking industry, Heath adds. That’s because today’s trucks can stay connected with a host of internet-enabled devices already built-in or mounted to the vehicle including navigation, electronic logging devices, smartphones and tablets. In the article, Heath also describes Drivewyze’s core product, Drivewyze PreClear, the nation’s only mobile-based commercial vehicle subscription service for weigh station and roadside inspection site bypass that uses CMRS transponder technology.
