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.

There are about 800 terms and definitions, including over 200 new or expanded terms since the second edition.
