J.B. Hunt installs Drivewyze throughout fleet

PeopleNet, a Trimble Company, and Drivewyze announced that J.B. Hunt Transport has chosen Drivewyze to deliver weigh station bypass services through the fleet’s in-cab PeopleNet platforms. The integration of the two technologies allows for hands-free delivery of the weigh station bypass service.

PeopleNet’s fleet mobility technology platforms are used by more than 2,000 fleets and 250,000 vehicles. Drivewyze, accessible through the PeopleNet platform, has its weigh station and mobile site bypass service active at 545 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 Transport. “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 percent bypass rate, all while eliminating the costs and management of transponders.”

“Our customers strive to outperform their competitors and Drivewyze helps them reduce delay costs, increase drive time, and retain drivers,” said Mark Kessler, general manager of Trucking at PeopleNet.
