Previously published as Kemp & Young's Cargo Work, this new edition has been fully revised and expanded to comprehensively reflect unit load containerised systems that are now used in the majority of cargo shipping, while retaining the necessary detail on transporting key classes of cargoes safely, efficiently and profitably. This is an essential reference for merchant seamen internationally.
The book covers general principles and the latest international regulations that affect all cargo work, including cargo types and key characteristics of a wide range of cargo classes. It also details Roll On - Roll Off cargo handling, containerisation, equipment and offshore supply.
