Truck News

HALIFAX, N.S. — On-board weigh scale manufacturer TruckWeight has developed free software that allows customers to display and record axle and vehicle weights in real-time on laptop or desktop computers.

Virtual Weigh Station, available for download from, allows customers to monitor weights via their computer from up to 500 feet away as a truck is being loaded/unloaded or arriving/departing from the yard. Customers can use the software in an office at a loading site or on a laptop computer in the cab.

The software is enabled by a TruckWeight received with a USB cable that connects to any Windows-based computer. Customers can track the weights of multiple vehicles and generate reports in an Excel format.

“Now fleets and owner/operators can record and monitor weights as rigs are loading, unloading, leaving and entering their home base,” said Peter Panagapko, president of TruckWeight. “Loaders can select one or as many rigs as they have and see and record the weights as the trucks are being loaded.”

Panagapko said the software will be particularly useful for logging and refuse operations, where multiple rigs are often loaded at one job site. Fleets can also use the software to track their loading history.
