For many fleets, truck weighing is a frustrating, time-consuming process. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that there are 177 million truck weight inspections each year. To help prevent long waits, the Federal Highway Administration is studying the feasibility of building unmanned “virtual weigh stations” across America.

Truck Weigh StationFor many fleets, truck weighing is a frustrating, time-consuming process. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that there are 177 million truck weight inspections each year. To help prevent long waits, the Federal Highway Administration is studying the feasibility of building unmanned “virtual weigh stations” across America.

But you don’t have to wait to enjoy innovation at the scales. Comdata has been added as a payment method on the CAT Scale Weigh My Truck app. It’s an easy, automated way for drivers to pay for CAT Scale transactions without ever leaving the truck—reducing weigh time (and wait time) by 30 minutes or more, time that could be spent driving.

A driver can now pull onto the scale, open the Weigh My Truck app on a mobile device, select payment through the Comdata Card, and the transaction is complete. The payment is automatically processed and the weigh certificate is emailed.

Using the Weigh My Truck app with the Comdata Card increases driver productivity by making transactions efficient and automated. That in turn increases fleet profitability due to improved compliance, record-keeping and cash management.

Here are some of the benefits of using the Comdata Card with the Weigh My Truck app:

Convenience – Combines one of the most widely accepted payment solutions in the fleet industry with the power of North America’s largest scale network and its more than 1,600 locations throughout the United States and Canada.

Higher productivity – With this solution, drivers don’t need to get out of the cab or walk into the office to pay. They’re out of the weigh station in a flash and back on the road.

Greater transparency – More purchases are now captured and viewable on a single invoice.

Minimizes need for driver reimbursement – All transactions can be pre-approved, with payment authorized through the Comdata Card.

Using the Weigh My Truck app with the Comdata card boosts your fleet’s productivity by speeding and simplifying every scale transaction.
