Bypassing Tolls and Weigh Stations with Technology

How much can you save from something as simple as being able to bypass a weigh station? Try $8.68.

The cliché “time is money” is a hard truth in the world of trucking. More than one company is ready to help fleets save time and money with bypass and automated toll technology.

According to a 2007 study sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation, a single bypass can save fleets approximately $8.68. This number represents the estimated time savings per bypass times the documented heavy-duty truck operation costs per minute. The total net benefits associated with the study’s 10-year analysis ranged from $3.2 million to $219.4 million per company.
