Gross Combination Weight

Gross Combination Weight (GCW)


Gross Combination Weight (GCW) — the value specified by the manufacturer as the maximum loaded weight of a truck/tractor plus the trailer or semitrailer designed for use with the truck tractor. In the absence of a value specified by the manufacturer, GCW will be determined by adding the gross vehicle weight (GVW) of the power unit and the total weight of the towed unit and any load thereon.
