Drivewyze has announced the addition of weigh stations in Wyoming for bypass opportunities.
With Wyoming, Drivewyze PreClear is now in 48 states and provinces – providing bypass opportunities at more than 800 locations. Two sites – one along I-25, and the other on I-80, will be activated by the end of August. Three more sites are being planned for future activation.
Drivewyze PreClear customers will now receive uninterrupted bypass coverage along I-25. Drivewyze’s first site is northbound in Cheyenne – the major port of entry for those entering the state from Northern Colorado. The interstate, which starts in New Mexico and goes up to Buffalo, Wyoming (where it intersects with I-90) connects Denver, Colorado Springs, and Albuquerque. Along both directions, a trucker could see 10-12 bypass opportunities along I-25.
Going west to east, Drivewyze has added the weigh station in Evanston on I-80 – just 80 miles east of Salt Lake City. “I-80 is a major artery connecting California, going all the way through to New Jersey,” said Brian Heath, president and CEO of Drivewyze. “More than 6,500 trucks travel I-80 through Wyoming each day. We’ve got I-80 well covered coast-to-coast, so drivers originating in San Francisco could have up to 32 bypasses during their round trip.”
That all adds up, according to Heath. “Based on an industry average of five minutes per weigh station visit – and up to an hour or more, if you get inspected, Drivewyze customers can enjoy a meaningful cost advantage over their competitors. Reduced on-route delays, and more productive drive times go straight to a carrier’s bottom line.”
