  1. aShares of delivery by ship type is the delivery of one vessel type divided by the total deliveries of three types (bulk, tanker crude and tanker product and chemical). Weighted conversion factor CGT/LWT is defined as where a i denotes the conversion factor CGT/LWT for a vessel type, and s i denotes the share of delivery for the corresponding vessel type.
