This Guide was developed and released by the professionals of the Wallenius Wilhelmsen company, one of the world leaders in the field of the marine cargo transportation. The booklet is divided into three basic parts, namely Handling, Static Cargo, and Equipment.

The Company carries huge volumes of static cargo all around the world, including machinery items, which require very careful hndling fue to the electronics fitted. The cargo to be transported is usually stowed on rolltrailers; however, the bolsters are also in use for the relatively small cargoes. In turn, bolsters and rolltrailers are secured to the ship's deck. The transporters must give due care and consideration to the details of cargo securing in order to avoid any possible mechanical stress since this can easily result in the damage to the cargo. Please note that this publication shall not be treated as the textbook; this is rather the booklet describing the company's experience and outlining some major static cargo transportation techniques.

However, it will definitely be useful for people involved in marine transportation of cargoes since the techniques contained in it are worth having a look. It also addresses such issues as moving the cargo across land and sea, and bringing distances from shore to the sea
