WCS Permits & Pilot Cars will be exhibiting at the 2021 project cargo and breakbulk industry trade show, Breakbulk Americas in Houston, Texas.
The in-person trade show takes place at the George R. Brown Convention Center September 28 – 30, which brings together providers of breakbulk and project cargo services.
WCS Permits looks forward to visiting with customers in-person while showcasing its services, including oversize load permits, logistics consulting, trip & fuel permits, pilot cars and truck safety equipment.
This year, the team will be at booth M42 located in Hall D & E, and will also be showing off their technology.
WCS developed and maintains, the Permit Portal on Google Play at the App Store. This app allows for drivers and dispatchers to receive instant automated text message notifications when oversize permits are approved and ready for download, print or email. With each permit, the app allows for viewing of any required state attachments, which will also be available for download.
For years, WCS’ online permit system has allowed customers to place orders, and view and download permits, which has proven to be a valuable tool for drivers and dispatchers. Now the Permit Portal app brings even more convenience and ease, eliminating the exchange of numerous emails and phone calls.
WCS also 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. In early 2018, WCS added a new feature of the Oversize Load Assistant, 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 per state. 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.
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.
The George R. Brown Convention Center is located at 1001 Avenida De Las Americas, Houston, TX 77010.
