in Freight specifically, does NT (Net Ton) not *also* mean Short Ton? I.e., Net Ton could be the Register Ton of 100 cubic feet, as described here, but sometimes refers to Short Ton of 2000 Lbs... I don't know the correct answer to this, but think that a reference to Short Tons should be appended. Thanks! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 15:33, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Modern net tonnage is an unitless index (see gross tonnage)) and thus there is no such thing as "net ton". The difference between NT and NRT should be more clearly stated. Tupsumato (talk) 15:35, 14 October 2011 (UTC)
