PeopleNet, a Trimble Company (NASDAQ: TRMB); and Drivewyze Inc announced that J B Hunt Transport Inc has chosen Drivewyze to deliver weigh station bypass service through the fleet’s in-cab PeopleNet platforms.
Integration of the two technologies allows for hands-free delivery of the weigh station bypass service. The decision follows the 2014 activation of Drivewyze PreClear Analytics on more than 8,000 company-owned trucks using PeopleNet in-cab platforms.
PeopleNet is a provider of fleet mobility technology platforms that serve more than 2,000 fleets and 250,000 vehicles to increase safety and efficiency while reducing cost per mile by integrating connectivity across an organization’s entire fleet. Drivewyze, now accessible through the PeopleNet platform, has become the largest provider of weigh station and mobile site bypass services in North America, currently offering 545 service sites in 34 states.
“J B Hunt drivers will experience increased bypasses and time savings as a result of Drivewyze’s geographical presence, as well as PreClear’s many inspection sites. In-depth analysis has supported a data-driven decision to adopt the Drivewyze service,” said Greer Woodruff, senior vice-president of safety, security, and driver personnel at J B Hunt. “Delays affect both the driver and the fleet, having a significant impact on drive time, operational costs, and productivity. PeopleNet and Drivewyze offer us a simple, fully-integrated solution with a 98% bypass rate—all while eliminating the costs and management of transponders.”
Brian Heath, president of Drivewyze, said, “J B Hunt is a recognized leader in the industry, and we are proud to support their drive for excellence in operations and safety. The Drivewyze PreClear service will give them an edge in their efforts to recruit and retain drivers, improve safety, reduce costs, and improve productivity.”
