Product Description

The 3rd Edition of this book 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:

  • Ship types and the parts of ships relating to the handling and stowage of cargo
  • The cargoes themselves (including many bulk cargoes and heavy lifts)
  • Dedicated terminals and their equipment and accessories
  • Cranes
  • Container types
  • Port equipment, such as forklift trucks and accessories
  • Other handling equipment.

Author: Peter Brodie FICS, has authored many well-respected shipping books and dictionaries; he has extensive experience in shipping, marine insurance, export and banking and is highly regarded in the industry
