Today, there are so many title available covering the shipping industry as a whole and port activities in particular, and containing tons of useful information and data on the important aspects of these industries. Taking into account that these two actually complement each other, the author decided to prepare a compact volume that would provide a valuable insight in each of them and provide readers with the essential understanding of how they contribute into the national economy.
However, the number of books devoted to the port industry is considerably less that those covering the shipping. That is why the author concentrated on the port activities in order to cover fill in the gap. The main objective of the present publication is therefore to give newcomers some general knowledge to these industries, providing him with the necessary background which will serve as a foundation to build the further studying.
The material is arranged in two big sections covering the port operations, including the types of ports and techniques involved, pilotage and cargo handling, port management structure, charging etc. and maritime transport, where such information as ship types, certification, terminology, economics and other critical aspects are covered.
