Chris Gillis of American Shipper, writes, “The state of Maryland has fully implemented what it deems to be a “first-in-the-nation” automated truck permit system for state, toll and Baltimore’s city roads, eliminating the former paper-based process altogether.”

The “Maryland One System” is what they will call it.  Not only will it provide a paperless solution, but they system is also expected to end review fees and lower processing time for overweight hauling permits.  For example, “the Maryland Department of Transportation receives over 140,000 overweight/oversize permit applications each year.”  According to Gillis’ article, the governor’s office said, “At this point, 97 percent of these permits are issued within two days or less, while it previously took up to 10 or more days.”

There are many benefits to the Maryland One System.
