What does Weighted Out mean?

In shipping, weighted out refers to the process of weighing a shipment after it has been loaded onto a truck or other transport vehicle. This is done to determine the total weight of the shipment, which is necessary for calculating freight charges and ensuring compliance with weight restrictions and regulations.

If a shipment is found to be overweight, carriers may impose additional fees or refuse to transport the shipment altogether.
