The throughput of goods, savings to the private sector, and emissions impacts can be directly measured from the automation equipment installed as part of this project. POE automation included installation of weigh in motion (WIM), automatic vehicle locators (AVL), and associated computer and communications equipment necessary to perform electronic credentialling.
PrePass™ allowed subscribers to bypass inspection stations if their credentials were in order. Evaluation data indicated that the automated system saved 48,200 gallons of fuel per month.
