We are introducing the completely revised and significantly updated release of the famous Thomas Stowage publication first published many years ago with the ultimate intention to provide quick yet comprehensive reference to the established practices of cargo handling as well as to the common procedures, taking into account the very latest developments in this area.
We would treat this book as the essential reading for ship agents and owners, operators of the cargo terminals at ports, marine insurers, claims departments; the book is also perfect for training purposes. The book is divided into five parts addressing safety, then techniques and systems, commodities, damage and claims, and, finally, the procedures. The appendixes at the end of the publication provide some supplementary information. The aim of the book, as declared by it's author, is to provide the first-hand advice on the properties and stowage of the so wide variety of the transported cargo.
However, it may also be used as a reference source by people not directly involved in the carriage of such cargoes. The thorough research performed by Robert Thomas reflects his professional expertise and great experience in this field and makes this book so useful for everyone dealing with cargo transportation.
