Now in its fourth edition, this illustrated dictionary gives readers a visual representation of all elements of maritime transport which relate to the handling and movement of cargo. This is particularly for the benefit of shore-based personnel who often do not get the opportunity to see first-hand how the cargoes they are working on are handled and moved.
The book covers:
- every major commodity
- how it is loaded
- how it is discharged
- what equipment is used to handle and store it
- any specialised terminal required
This new edition not only includes many new definitions, it also benefits from several photographic sequences showing cargo loading and discharging processes in action from start to finish. This book is a valuable reference to any professionals working in the shipping and cargo handling industry.
