2018 MarketWaves Conference – Drivewyze

Weigh Station Bypass is increasingly becoming an integral part of the trucking industry. But how did weigh station bypass start?

Charles Buffone, Director of Product Management at Drivewyze, had the pleasure of introducing and examining weigh station bypass during the 2018 MarketWaves Conference in Grapevine, Texas. Weigh station bypass debuted twenty years ago in an effort to decrease costs associated with weigh station pull-ins and to help scale commercial vehicle enforcement. The original transponder-based technology made weigh station bypass a reality, however the associated costs for infrastructure changes made the technology expensive and less scalable compared to modern weigh station bypass technologies.

Constant environmental changes and an increasing competitive market allowed for more technologies to be introduced into the trucking industry. In 2012 Drivewyze launched its App “Drivewyze PreClear” and has since become the nation’s largest weigh station bypass service in North America.
