Cargo weight distribution

Distribution of cargo weight over the length and width of an object (e.g. truck or container) - no more than 60% of cargo weight should be concentrated in one half of a container’s length 

Payload = 12,000kg Tare = 2,000kg
Gross weight = 14,000kg
Cargo (payload) distribution 60% of 12,000kg = 7,200kg
                                             40% of 12,000kg = 4,800kg
