What is a Net Ton versus a Gross Ton?

A Net Ton is based on 2,000lbs and a Gross Ton is based on 2,240lbs.

  • For example if you have a 2,500lb load and are quoted 150NT you would receive $187.50. If you were quoted 150GT you would receive $167.40 because it takes more weight to make the Gross Ton. So when you are calling around for quotes, make sure you know if it is a Net or Gross Ton
