Certified Public Truck Scale

Public Truck Scale

The McAllen Foreign Trade Zone a state-of-the-art Certified Public Truck Scale at 6401 S. 33rd Street, between South Ware Road and South 23rd Street on FM 1016 (Old Military Highway). This Certified Public Truck Scale has easy access from 23rd Street and Ware Road and offers:
  • Automatic individual axle weights
  • Optional weight distribution services
  • Clean and secure facilities
  • $8.00 scale rate
  • Open 24 Hours 7 Days a Week
The McAllen Foreign Trade Zone will offer additional services including the weight redistribution of cargo onsite in order for trucks to meet the Texas Department of Transportation guidelines. The intention is to offer a scale facility closer to the border which allows truckers to verify their loads immediately after crossing the border. Before this facility was opened truckers had to travel to the next closest weigh station before they would find out that they were not legal. This would necessitate the truck having to return to the shipper to redistribute or unload their shipment in order to keep it in compliance.

Also, since the facility is certified legal for trade and is extremely precise, customers, produce companies, and other bulk commodity companies can rest assured that the weights provided to them are accurate.

Having a certified public truck scale on site is a strategic advantage to any company operating inside the McAllen Foreign Trade Zone. The ability to guarantee your trucks are legal before they even leave the premises saves your company time and money and prevents overloaded trucks driving on public roadways.
