The gross weight will include all aspects required for shipping. It includes the actual product, its packaging and any other packaging required to enable the shipping of the product. Different aspects will add up to the gross weight for each transport method: Gross weight for air transport is calculated as the product weight plus the packaging weight plus the weight of the crew and passengers, fuel and aircraft. Gross weight for transport by road or rail is the product weight plus packaging (tare weight) plus vehicle or wagon’s weight. Gross weight for transport by waterway is calculated as product weight and package or container weight (tare weight).
