WCS Permits & Pilot Cars, North America’s oversize load authority, is excited to be exhibiting at this year’s project cargo and breakbulk industry trade show, Breakbulk Americas in Houston, Texas the first week of October.
Breakbulk takes place at the George R. Brown Convention Center Oct. 2 – 4, and is the largest exhibition of its kind in America, which brings together providers of breakbulk and project cargo services.
WCS Permits looks forward to showcasing its services, including oversize load permits, logistics consulting, trip & fuel permits, pilot cars and truck safety equipment.
Exhibiting also allows team WCS to show off their technology. WCS owns and maintains The Oversize Load Assistant; an online permit manual with the ability to search by regulations, US state, Canadian Provence or a combination. This year, WCS has a new feature of the Oversize Load Assistant to demonstrate, the Permit Calculator. The calculator allows users to estimate permit fees based on their upcoming travel. By entering a few variables such as dimensions and estimated miles being traveled, the program calculates a permit total for the user. This feature is part of the premium membership option available. The basic plan allows users to search regulations such as pilot car regulations, oversize load dimensions, oversize night and weekend travel, holiday travel and more. The premium plan includes the calculator, plus all of what is included in the basic plan.
Booth visitors can also learn about the Permit Accompaniment app, also published by WCS. The app has city, county and state provisions listed for all 50 US states, as well as the 13 Canadian Provinces. Both a free and paid version are available on the App Store and Google Play. The free version includes state provisions and the paid version includes city and county provisions. WCS will provide demonstrations during the show.
For over 20 years, WCS Permits has been offering its services to transportation companies in the United States and Canada. In more recent years, WCS has also expanded its truck safety product offering to include in-house manufactured oversize load signs, FoxFire lights, safety flags, measuring poles and other truck safety products. WCS will show off some of the product line at the show. The company also sells all products online via their web store at store.wcspermits.com.
