This is the 3rd edition completely revised to reflect the major changes which have occurred since the publication of the 2nd edition.

The book presents some useful information on the terminology involved in the carriage and handling of cargoes.

The revision particularly covers developments in the handling of cargo in general, with particular reference to modern unitised handling techniques.

Similarly the basic terms involved in the handling of liquid cargoes of all kinds are included together with references to current Legislation and Codes of Practice relative to specific cargoes.

While primarily intended as a handy reference book for shipping personnel it is hoped that it will also be of assistance to all involved with the transportation of goods at all levels.
