This is a very useful glossary providing any people involved in cargo handling with the good explanations of the basic terminology. The cargo handling process is a complicated process that would not permit simple definitions. That is why is it very important to know and understand all of the terms commonly used during the cargo handling activities.
All of the terms selected by the authors for inclusion on the glossary have been listed in alphabetical orders and accompanies with the brief but clear explanations. Having this book readily available at all times will allow avoiding any undesired situations that would otherwise be arising as a result of improperly used wording. There are some normally accepted variations in the use and meaning of some of the terms from one port to another, depending on the established and traditionally followed practices.
That is the main reason why it is not possible to list absolutely all terms in a single volume. There are so many processes involved in any cargo handling operation that come and go and the associated terminology changes from one generation of the professionals to another. Have a copy of the glossary available at all times as a good reference source.
