Who We Are
Founded in 1993, PrePass Safety Alliance, formerly HELP Inc., was the first non-profit public-private partnership (P3) dedicated to advancing the safety and efficiency of the commercial transportation industry. The Alliance’s flagship program, PrePass, allows motor carriers with solid safety ratings to bypass inspection facilities and helps enforcement and compliance agencies focus on trucks that may need attention. PrePass Safety Alliance is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of an equal number of public sector and trucking industry representatives.
PrePass Safety Alliance’s mission is making highways safer and more efficient through innovative data-driven solutions. Our services help increase safety, reduce delays and costs, and enhance the economic and environmental benefits that the freight sector contributes to the nation. The Alliance will continue to serve its customers by identifying and developing advanced technologies that increase transportation system interoperability and performance.
PrePass Safety Alliance reduces traffic congestion, improves carrier safety practices and promotes safer roadways by electronically screening and bypassing only the safest, most qualified fleets.
PrePass Safety Alliance fosters collaboration between government and the private sector to improve truck safety, providing measurable results for public policy and industry decision-makers.
PrePass Safety Alliance saves carriers time, fuel and billions in operating expenses over more than two decades, while helping to make regulatory enforcement and compliance more efficient.
PrePass Safety Alliance offers innovative technology and services focused on data reliability, security and actionable information for improved decision-making.
