The present publication is aimed not only at seamen but also at the marine surveyors and ship superintendents, as well as the riggers, cargo operators and all other workers engaged in handling the shipboard cargo. The author has managed to cover literally all aspects including but not limited to the materials commonly used for cargo lashing, utilizing ISO containers, cost calculation, welding procedures, conversion factors, and many others.
In fact, the number of the factors to consider is huge, making the task quite complex. The people assigned with the responsibility for cargo handling shall possess sound knowledge of the behavior of the various cargo lashing systems under different circumstances, meaning the loads applied. There are seven main chapters in this volume, covering all required areas, starting with the general information on deck cargo handling, followed with the introduction to the generally used lashing materials.
The strength/lashing arrangements are discussed in the third chapter, while the fourth one is devoted to the timber deck cargo. The remaining chapters cover the ro-ro ships, vehicle carriers, lashing costs and other valuable information.
