Synopsis

Shipping has many hundreds of terms and phrases whose meaning is not always obvious, even for experienced practitioners. This comprehensive dictionary contains concise definitions of maritime terms and phrases, including those used in liner, tramp and bulk shipping. This sixth edition contains new terms and phrases which cover: * The latest technological and other improvements in cargo handling * Improvements in port equipment * Developments in the way freight charges and surcharges are levied * New documentation on bills of lading and charter-party clauses. This book will be an immensely useful reference tool for all professionals involved in maritime transport, including ship-owners, shipbrokers, freight forwarders, port authorities, average adjusters, and ship operators. Practitioners, students and academics of maritime law will also find the book of great value, as will those in related industries such as banking, commercial and insurance law.
