Why Wait for Weights?
By Emily Kozubwski
Household Goods drivers are some of the hardest working men and women on our roadways. They put in long hours each day caring for our customers’ most important belongings and then long hours on the road getting those special belongings to their new home. All this while managing equipment safety, maintenance, local labor and tight deadlines for paperwork. Electronic logs are here, and digital inventories are quickly making their way into our driving fleets every day. Why not introduce digital weight tickets at the same time?

CAT Scale has created a free app called Weigh My Truck for fleet owners and professional drivers to revolutionize the transmission of weight tickets. The app can be used on Android and IOS devices. It provides locations of all available CAT scales for your drivers. The drivers don’t even have to get out of the truck to complete the transaction.
There are no additional charges for using Weigh My Truck. Pricing for U.S. locations is $13.00 for a first weigh and $3.50 for a reweigh. Pricing for Canadian locations is $23.00C for a first weigh and $6.00C for a reweigh.
We’ve heard from several customers that they are seeing a time savings of 20 minutes per weigh, which gets your drivers back on the road and making money that much quicker. Professional drivers and fleet owners can set up REF#/GBL# fields in their account and set up secondary email accounts for the immediate receipt of scale tickets to reduce the administrative burden.
