Phoenix, AZ – Fleets of all sizes can now take advantage of the nation’s only one-stop-shop for bypassing and tolls — PrePass Plus.
HELP Inc., the non-profit public/private partnership that provides PrePass® weigh station bypass and other truck safety services, announced today it is expanding its money- and time-saving PrePass Plus service to all fleets.
Formed in 1993, HELP Inc. is the only provider of one-device bypassing for qualified fleets, along with electronic toll payments. Today, over half a million qualified trucks from more than 45,000 fleets are enrolled in PrePass services.
The PrePass Plus system includes most tolling locations in almost two dozen states and on lanes where hundreds of thousands of trucks travel.
“In an industry like trucking where every minute equates to dollars, owner/operators and small fleets can now enjoy consolidated invoices for both bypassing services and tolls, saving them time and money like never before,” said Karen Rasmussen, President & CEO of HELP Inc.
In addition, PrePass customers enjoy access to their toll transactions 24-hours-a-day, seven days week and as often as needed so that toll costs can be billed to shippers in real-time.
“Perhaps the most exciting feature of PrePass Plus for carriers is that all toll disputes are handled for them by our customer service team,” added Ms. Rasmussen. “When you are traveling across country or through numerous states and utilizing numerous tolling systems along the way, it’s nice to have a team behind you that can handle violations and disputes in all jurisdictions.”
HELP Inc. is nearing a milestone of 670 million actual weigh-station bypasses since 1997, resulting in cost savings of nearly $4.8 billion to motor carriers. With new PrePass sites consistently being added to the program and new weigh-in-motion (WIM) scales being built by HELP at many existing PrePass sites, compliant carriers will enjoy the savings and safety that come from bypassing weigh stations and electronically paying their tolls without having to stop at toll booths.
