Hi there, in martime terms DWT includes the containers weight as well. What i dont understand is how is it achieved? All ships specifications of container capacty has higher weight than the DWT.
Even in that article, they mention multiple definitions for DWT. Those definitions can get very complicated and specific, just like the Plimsol Line and the other lines painted on the side.
It may be hard to find someone here at PF who knows the exact answer. But, be patient a few more days and see what other answers you might get.
The DWT is a rating not a limit. How they get to that point is a complicated process. I would recommend getting a little more understanding of Metacentric height or GM.All ships specifications of container capacty has higher weight than the DWT.
