English term or phrase: dead-weight tonnage
There were 326 orders for new ships last year alone -- a total of 26.8 million dead-weight tonnage. The majority of orders were for tankers and bulk carriers, the markets that the Greeks are more prone to service, leaving out ships for niche markets like vehicle carriers, refrigerator vessels or multi-purpose ships.

Deadweight Tonnage is the maximum weight of the vessel's contents (its carrying capacity). It includes the crew, passengers, cargo, fuel, water, and stores. Like Displacement Tonnage, it is often expressed in long tons or in metric tons.

Dead weight tonnage
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
Dead weight tonnage refers to the weight, in long tons, that a ship can safely carry when fully loaded. It is a unit of shipping cargo capacity. It also describes the total weight of a ship if it has sunk as a sunken ship does not displace water, making the term 'displacement' incorrect.

Long ton
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
A long ton is the name used in the US for the unit called the "ton" in the avoirdupois or Imperial system of measurements, as used (alongside the metric system) in the United Kingdom and to some extent in other Commonwealth countries. It is equal to 2240 pounds (approximately 1016 kilograms). It has some limited use in the US, most commonly in measuring the displacement of ships.
The standard ton in the US measurement system is the "short ton", equal to 2000 pounds (approximately 907.2 kg). Both long and short tons are defined as 20 hundredweights, but a hundredweight is 112 pounds (which is equal to 8 stone) in the Imperial system and 100 pounds in the US system.
The spelling "tonne" denotes the metric tonne of 1000 kilograms (approximately 2204.6 pounds).
