WCS Permits to Focus on Tech at Transportation Symposium

2020 will be a busy year for the WCS Permits’ staff with several trade shows and symposiums on the calendar, including guest speaking and sponsorship.

WCS to Showcase Services at Several Shows in 2020

To kick off the year, WCS Permits & Pilot Cars will be involved in a customer event showcasing products and services to owner-operators from across North America.

One of the main products to showcase at all events includes the Permit Portal app. The app allows for instant text message notifications as soon as permits are approved and ready to be downloaded and shared. Drivers and dispatchers across North America have opted in to receive instant automated text message notifications when oversize permits are approved. The latest version of the app, took it a step further and links all required attachments with state and local permits.

The Permit Portal app has been live on both the App Store and Google Play for almost a year and has stellar reviews for its simplicity.

Specialized Transportation Symposium

Then it’s straight to the 2020 SC&RA Transportation Symposium in Charlotte, NC Tuesday, Feb. 18 – Friday, Feb. 21 where hundreds of heavy haul peers across the OS/OW industry gather to communicate about the industry’s latest products, services, challenges and perks. Individuals involved in various aspects of the specialized transportation industry gather, from permit agents to pilot car operators to heavy haul operations managers.

WCS Permits participates both as an exhibitor and as a symposium sponsor. 

During exhibiting day on Thursday, Feb. 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., WCS will showcase its services, including OS/OW permits, pilot car dispatching, logistics consulting and truck safety equipment.

The WCS team will also demonstrate the Oversize Load Assistant, which includes a look into the online permit manual and the Permit Calculator which estimates oversize fees. Demos of the company’s online permit portal – the WCS Permit Portal – will show customers how they can use the program to quickly re-order permits and find what they need by searching different sets of criteria such as origin, destination, height, width, object and more.

WCS President & CEO, Wes Mollno will also be a speaker at the 2020 event. Mollno will be one of several speakers that will discuss future changes to the permitting industry, including how technology in the industry will influence the next decade.
