The Trucks Screen

Taring Trucks


When a truck arrives at the scale, you can capture the truck's empty weight (its tare) from the Trucks screen.

  • Choose a truck by clicking the gray plus [+] sign next to TRUCK.


Or you may simply type the existing Truck ID and press Enter on your keyboard.

  • Click the TARE WEIGHT field and enter the weight in the field by A] simply pressing Enter on your keyboard (the weight from a connected weight indicator will load in the field automatically) or B] you may type the weight in by hand.
  • Click Save. Your truck has been tared and is ready for ticketing.

Adding New Haulers and Trucks

Before new Trucks can be added to your Fast-Weigh 10 system, you must have one or more Haulers to attach them to. In most cases, the Hauler is a carrier, trucking company, or customer who owns the truck(s) you will be ticketing. You can also think of each hauler as a folder that one or more trucks belong to.

Tips to remember:

  • All trucks must be assigned to a Hauler.
  • One Hauler can have an unlimited number of Trucks attached to it.
  • Even if a truck stands alone and does not belong to a larger trucking company, you will still need to create a hauler for it first and then create the truck.
  • When adding a new truck on either the Web Portal or the desktop scale application, choosing a Hauler for that truck is a requirement.
  • All Hauler IDs and Truck IDs must be unique. Hauler IDs can be up to 20 characters in length. Truck IDs can be up to 10 characters. Please use the Name field for the full hauler name.

    Example:

    Hauler ID:
    JWILLTRUCK

    Hauler Name:
    Jay Williams' Trucking

    Various Truck IDs attached to that Hauler:
    JWILL109
    JWILL210
    JWILL3
    ...etc.
