Surely the Metric X-Tons are smaller than their "American Traditional Units" namesakes??🤔 And should they be spelled Metric X-Tonne??

Also I think you've missed Shedload (which is bigger than a Load) and also Truckload (which is bigger again). I guess a Truckload must be getting close to a Ton...

I believe you are right. A metric ton is equal to 1.102311 ton

I know it's a little old fashioned but the next in line from a truck load would be a boat load.
