In that same article, Drivewyze president Brian Heath said that mobile-based weigh station bypass service, which also runs on permanently installed in-truck devices, is a game-changer for the trucking industry.

“ROI for Drivewyze PreClear is one of the best in the industry” Says This Month’s Food Logistics Magazine

The latest issue of Food Logistics features an interview with Drivewyze President and CEO Brian Heath, on the “game changing” nature of CMRS transponder technology. “An FMCSA (Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration) study showed that a weigh station stop, made for as little as five minutes at a time, costs the operator $8.68 in fuel and lost time,” notes Heath. “The ROI for Drivewyze PreClear is one of the best in the industry.” Thanks to working with partners such as PeopleNet, XRS and Zonar, Heath says the future is exciting. “We started by having our technology available on smartphones—downloaded from App stores.
