Tonnage and displacement

Gross tonnage and displacement are not equivalent and vary depending on the type of ton (e.g. metric or imperial) and how they are calculated. How gross tonnage is calculated has changed somewhat over time, but has always been a measure of cargo space ( i.e., it is a measure of the volume of the cargo space), and figures for displacement also can vary because of different standards for loading.
