Comdata is adding new payment capabilities for CAT Scale transactions within the Weigh My Truck mobile app.
Truck weighs are an important industry practice for over-the-road drivers needing to comply with stringent weight regulations and avoid potential fines associated with overweight or misbalanced loads. Unfortunately, these necessary stops can also be very time consuming, taking drivers off the road for 30 minutes or more as they weigh, pay and collect their paperwork.
The new solution from Comdata and CAT Scale combines one of the most widely accepted payment solutions in the fleet industry with the power of the largest scale network, allowing drivers to quickly stop, weigh and pay without ever having to leave their cab.
Drivers can complete the process and be back on the road in minutes. Additionally, Comdata offers unique controls for the transaction payment, validating that both the scales product and the individual weigh station location are open and approved for each transaction.
Using the Weigh My Truck app, drivers can now streamline the weigh station process at any of the more than 1,650 CAT Scale locations nationwide.
Kelle’s Transport Services, which operates more than 285 trucks and 400 reefer trailers from its headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah, has been using the payment solution with Comdata for their CAT Scale transactions.
In addition to saving drivers time, this new solution will reduce the need for the fleet to process driver reimbursements, while also their improving record keeping and compliance.
CAT Scale Company is the world’s leading truck scale network providing guaranteed, accurate weights at over 1,650 locations in the U.S. and Canada.
