I believe that Port of Baltimore used to have a designated route for
overweight trucks.  Perhaps check with Planning Director there.

 Check with Port of Singapore                                                                                           
 They have been monitoring their containers and haulers for 15+ years so that they get rid of a lot of queqing at the   
 gate and Just-In-Time delivery                                                                                         
 At HK Maersk had a system without much year at all with telemetric queqing of trucks for direct load dock to ship -    
 like the rail systems sometime - 2M teus for one berth and a 12 storey truck park

              From monitoring this thread thus far, it would be straight forward to track designated route compliance   
              with permitted overweight drays (or any other permitted vehicle) by requiring said vehicles to be         
              equipped with telemetry and having the per vehicle telemetry bread crumb routinely reported. This         
              technique allows designated route compliance, as well as nuances (time of day restrictions, etc) to be    
              monitored. It can also be done in an anonymous manner (e.g. fleet owner not explicitly identified) or on  
              an identified per truck basis, depending upon sensitivity of the stakeholders to privacy issues. The Port 
              of Long Beach already requires telemetry for drays in and out of there.                                   
              If the permitted vehicle is regularly dead heading back to pick up another load (typical dray activity),  
              the pattern of "full" verses probable empty trips can be accounted for. More complicated scenarios can be 
              accounted for too, but they generally require close planning prior to implementation. Beyond compliance   
              monitoring, the aggregate data can also be used to monitor general freight flows, idling issues and       
              related planning support activities.  If anyone is interested in learning more details for leveraging     
              commercial vehicle telemetry in this or similar deployments (such as border travel time monitoring),

 I am trying to identify the various working models for a port area overweight                                          
 truck corridor program.   These programs recognize the unique need for                                                 
 overweight cargo drays in the vicinity of ports and use ideas such as corridor                                         
 designation and permits to manage this activity.   The programs I have                                                 
 identified to date are Los Angeles, Long Beach, Oakland, CA, and Tacoma,                                               
 WA.   These all follow a similar model so I am hoping this post will lead to                                           
 other kinds of working models.
