A Revenue Ton (RT) is a shipping term describing the measurement on which the shipment is freighted. If cargo is rated as weight or measure, whichever produces the highest revenue will be considered the revenue ton. Weights are based on metric tonnes and measures are based on cubic meters.

1 RT = 1 tonne or 1 m3.[1]
