Shipment Gross Weight

As the name implies, this is the cumulative weight of all the goods in the shipment. In mathematical terms, it can be interpreted as: Gross weight = Net weight + Tare weight.

This is therefore the sum total weight of the shipment, which means that the gross weight is the combined total of the tare weight as well as the net weight. It is normally necessary to be aware of the three weights of the shipment.
