The Maryland One Integrated Hauling Permits System DELIVERS - No Waiting, No Fees
With the advent of the new Maryland One System, hauling permit applications are auto-issued, saving time and money.
Everyday commercial vehicles travel on our highways to bring consumers everything they want and need. To keep Maryland open for business, MDOT SHA works hand-in-hand with commercial truck drivers and trucking companies to deliver - literally. Hauling permits allow businesses to move oversize and overweight load throughout the state. In the past, permit processing could take weeks. Thanks to a new automated, paperless system called Maryland One, Maryland businesses save money and commercial drivers save time.
In the past, the hauling permit process involved manual paper processing, which could take anywhere from a few days to weeks depending on the specifics. Maryland receives nearly 140,000 overweight/oversize permit applications each year. That's a lot of paper processing.
Thanks to Maryland One, hauling permit processing is now automated, meaning the tedious process that once required bridge engineers and motor carrier experts to analyze individually each overweight move to determine the safest route, speed and overall impact to road infrastructure is now much, much easier. Now, 99.1 percent of all applications are issued within 48 hours or less. Not to mention, Maryland One's monetary savings are tremendous: in Fiscal Year 2017, the new electronic processing system saved the State $2,169,840, while commercial industry savings reached $19,570,340.
