Commercial Vehicle Operations (CVO) in Wyoming are among the safest and most efficient in the United States. In the next ten years the truck volume in Wyoming will increase 50%. While the current system serves the current volume well, this Business Plan outlines a path to serving the increasing volume of trucks as well, or better, with the same manpower and resources. This Business Plan recognizes the successes of Wyoming CVO and proposes seven elements to keep Wyoming a trucking leader. These seven elements are : 1. Local Information Server, supplementing the functions currently performed by the Wyoming State mainframe with additional capabilities served from a local server; eventually many functions performed by the mainframe can be performed by the local server, saving the Motor Carrier Division some of the $400,000 annual mainframe cost, 2. More Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) 3. Expand PrePass, 4. Pre-Clearance Program, 5. Increased authority for port of entry special officers, 6. Joint Facilities, encouraging the development of working relationships with all of Wyomings neighbors to assess the feasibility of additional cost-effective and efficient joint ports, and 7. Electronic Credentialing. The Plan was developed with the Highway Patrol Motor Carriers Division, the Motor Vehicle Services Office, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) Office of Motor Carriers (OMC), and the Wyoming Trucking Association (WTA)
