Are Ton and Tonne the same..??

No, they are NOT the same..

  • Ton is an imperial measurement and equates to about 2240 lbs (pounds) = roughly 1015 kgs..
  • Tonnes is a metric measurement and equates to 1000 kgs.. This is more commonly used all over the world..

So watch out those of you that deal with charges per ton or tonne.. Know the difference and charge accordingly..

Simple yet important..
