DALLAS – (COMMERCIAL THREAD) – Omnitracs, LLC, a Solera company, today announced that it has partnered with PrePass Safety Alliance to deliver PrePass on its Omnitracs One platform. Fleets that access the PrePass app will be able to bypass weigh stations, improving driver satisfaction with fewer inspection stops and exceeding customer expectations with faster delivery of loads, while lowering net costs associated with idling time and fuel consumption. Directly integrated with Omnitracs One, the weighing station bypass information will be available along with all other fleet activities, on a converged platform.
According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration, preliminary inspections cost a fleet five minutes to travel and 0.4 gallons of fuel per truck. More importantly, secondary inspections cost 30 minutes of driving time and increase the risk of potential violations and out-of-service notifications. According to the Alliance, PrePass trucks bypass an open and functioning weigh station, on average 12.3 times per month, saving a typical fleet of 100 trucks more than $ 128,000 each year.
“We are delighted to offer our customers the PrePass app through Omnitracs One,” commented Mick Milnark, vice president of product management at Omnitracs. “By providing this essential information through the easy-to-use app on our Omnitracs One platform, fleets do not need to install additional equipment in their cabins, and drivers benefit from an integrated app to access crucial information that helps them achieve their goal. one-off goals. The ability to add the PrePass app is further proof demonstrating the adaptability of the Omnitracs One platform, giving customers the flexibility to choose the apps that best meet the needs of their individual fleet.
With the PrePass app, drivers are notified of an upcoming weigh station when they cross a geographic fence three kilometers away. PrePass then checks carrier credentials, safety scores, and vehicle weights, if applicable, to determine the bypass decision. Drivers receive a notification on Omnitracs One to bypass or enter the weigh station, all while the truck is traveling at highway speed. In addition, fleets receive mobile safety ALERTS for work areas, traffic jams, upcoming collisions, brake checks, ramps, traffic incidents, rest areas, gusts of wind , steep slopes, truck parking, weather alerts and areas closed to commercial vehicles.
“This partnership between Omnitracs and PrePass Safety Alliance brings together two US-based organizations known for providing efficient and cost-effective solutions to help fleets make safe and on-time deliveries to their customers. We are delighted to deliver PrePass on the Omnitracs One platform, ”commented Mark Doughty, President and CEO of PrePass Safety Alliance. “With more than 650,000 commercial vehicles from prequalified fleets currently benefiting from our service, we know that integrating PrePass with Omnitracs One will save motor carriers even more time, fuel and money. ”
