Bestpass has launched a toll by plate solution as a supplement to its nationwide transponder-based toll coverage. Toll by plate coverage includes both power unit and trailer license plates. It helps commercial fleets by consolidating nationwide coverage with tolling authorities and minimizing the impact of toll by plate transactions, which includes administrative fees and complications from delayed billing.
“The rise of all-electronic tolling across the United States has led to an increase in unplanned toll by plate for commercial fleets,” said John Andrews, president and CEO of Bestpass. “By combining our traditional transponder-based coverage with this new toll by plate solution, we are able to provide an even more comprehensive toll management program for our customers.”
In addition to administrative fees and delayed billing, each tolling authority has different business rules, and toll by plate can introduce significant complexity for fleets, including challenges related to trailer plates and leased equipment. Toll by plate adds expense and increases processing time for tolling authorities.
“Our toll by plate solution facilitates greater efficiency and less cost for both our customers and the toll facility operators, creating a winning situation for all parties,” said Andrews.
