GW – Gross weight is simply the weight of the vehicle, when fully loaded, and is an indication of the total weight of everything on the bridge, including the vehicle.

GVW – Gross Vehicle Weight Tare Weight is the weight of the vehicle after the load has been removed.


Axle Weight means in relation to an axle of a vehicle, the total weight transmitted by the wheels attached to that axle to the surface on which the vehicle rests.

The Axle Weight of a wheeled vehicle is the total weight bearing on the roadway for all wheels connected to a given axle. Axle load is an important design consideration in the engineering of roadways and designed to tolerate a maximum weight-per-axle. Exceeding the maximum rated load will cause damage to the roadway and result in fines for overloading.
