“DRIVERS FEEL A LITTLE BIT MORE COMFORTABLE BEING ABLE TO GLANCE OVER AND SEE THEY ARE GOING TO BE ABLE TO BYPASS A WEIGH STATION.”
In addition to time and fuel savings, Butcher said, D&H benefits from having alerts displayed in the truck cab. He said drivers can quickly and easily see or hear bypass notifications, similar to a transponder, allowing them to keep their attention on the road ahead.
“Drivers feel a little bit more comfortable being able to glance over and see they are going to be able to bypass a weigh station,” Butcher said. “The sooner the driver can determine whether they need to slow down and pull in or continue at their current speed, the better. It all helps improve safety for our drivers and others on the highway.”
While saving time, money and fuel, plus improving safety for drivers, is important to Butcher, PrePass ultimately helps D&H Transportation keep its deliveries on time while helping with driver retention and recruitment.
“As for recruiting drivers, PrePass is one of the enticements, or carrots, we use along with having Geotab for hours of service logging and being a family-owned business.”
