A very popular and very useful publication on cargo handling, this is a guidebook containing tons of the information about the loading and handling, securing and stowage, and finally maritime transportation of different types of goods. Note, however, that the content of this book does not cover liquid cargoes and gases.

The opening chapter of the publication tells readers what the cargo is in general and what kinds of cargoes are there; it also covers the parameters to be taken into consideration for successful transportation of cargoes including planning, stowage and distribution.

Particular attention has been paid by the author of the volume to containerized cargo, lashing materials and arrangements for such cargoes, reefer containers together with the associated cooling technology, stowage and planning of the reefer cargoes, various bulk cargoes and procedures for their loading and distribution, design and construction of the bulk carriers, categories of the vessels transporting cargo in bulk, cargo liquefaction, grains and various grain products, general cargo, etc.

The responsibilities of the ship Master and Shipper are covered in the separate chapter. Two other sections have been devoted to the transportation of the heavy lift cargo, forces commonly acting on cranes, hoisting devices, steel and timber cargo, ro-ro vessels and so many other aspects of maritime cargo transportation and handling making this volume an excellent one for every single person working in the maritime industry.
