PHOENIX – August 31, 2021 – PrePass Safety Alliance today announced that PrePass® weigh station bypass service is now available on the Geotab Marketplace, a go-to source for organizations seeking to better manage their fleets. This integration provides qualified motor carriers with a trusted and reliable option to expand bypass opportunities and help improve fleet safety and efficiency.
With the PrePass integration, drivers can now access bypass and safety alerts from within the Geotab Drive application.
