OXCART Permit Systems Coming March 13, 2017

Starting March 13, 2017 the Elk Grove Village Police will be changing the way we process our overweight/oversize permits.  We will be using an online-based permitting system via the website, www.oxcartpermits.com.  Once the software is implemented, the older system of processing permits (via fax and/or email) will be discontinued.  Any of the old permitting forms submitted after that time will not be accepted and/or approved.

Any company wanting to apply for an overweight/oversize permit in Elk Grove Village will have to use the Oxcart permitting software.  Registration is easy and can be completed on the Oxcart website under the Trucking login/sign up link at http://www.oxcartpermits.com. Once registered, companies will then be able to reap the benefits of the following via Oxcart:

  • Access a simple to use online interface for requesting local permits
  • Paperless permits downloadable to your computer or any mobile device
  • Eliminate tedious paper processes, faxing and phone calls
  • Speed the process of permit approvals
  • Features an online, interactive mapping solution to assist in route selection
  • Online permit approvals pushed to your email inbox
  • Provide an easy, online payment system (Credit Card Only – see below)

Local Fees

  • $50.00 one-way (5 days); $80.00 round trip (10 days); $200.00 unlimited (90 days)

Processing and Credit Card Fees

In addition to the Elk Grove Village permit fees, Oxcart will require a nominal processing fee for each permit. Oxcart will also assess a credit card fee for each permit processed.  Those charges are as follows:

  • Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Diner’s Club – 2.9% of total permitting fee (permit & processing fee combined)
  • Plus a $.30 transaction fee for ALL permits

If you should have any questions please contact Sergeant Matt FioRito at mfiorito@elkgrove.org or 847-357-4180.
