UPT2021 Win in Indiana with New OS/OW Permit System
(May 8, 2019)
- Managing heavy and wide-loads on Indiana roadways will become more user-friendly thanks to an upgraded permitting system provided by the Indiana Department of Revenue Motor Carrier Services Division. The new Indiana Oversize/Overweight Permitting System promises to be easier to use and more accurate while reducing processing times. OS/OW carriers will be able to enter specific destinations rather than just city names, choose among up to four pre-approved routes (where available) and immediately download permits without waiting up to 24 hours for a manual review.
More details and a user guide will be available before the system goes live. Special thanks to Indiana State Sen. Brian Buchanan; Gary Langston, Indiana Trucking Association; Geary Buchanan; and Jeff Fleming for their outstanding leadership on this issue.
Uniform Permit Transport 2021 (UPT2021) is an SC&RA initiative to establish harmonization between all 50 states. Two of the primary goals for UPT2021 are to encourage all states to allow minimum weight thresholds, and to analyze and issue permits via automated permit systems, 24-7. Upon implementation of Indiana’s system, 37 states will use a system that auto-issues single-trip permits. The aim is to gain 100 percent compliance across the country by the year 2021.
