The weight that is shown in the bill of lading should be the Cargo Gross Weight which is also the same as the Container Net Weight. Cargo Gross Weight – is the weight of the raw cargo (example – Peppadews) + the weight of bottles or cans that it is packed in.. If the bottles and cans are further packed into cartons which are placed on a pallet, then the weight of the peppadews + bottles + cartons + pallets = Cargo Gross Weight. Container Net Weight – is the Cargo Gross Weight after it has been packed into a container – but excluding the tare weight of the container.
