Synopsis

Marine Cargo Operations clearly spells out the basic principles of cargo operations and acquaints merchant officers with the techniques of stowage and their application. Based on the authors' half century of experience, the book singles out the most practical methods, procedures, and philosophies and presents them in thorough detail. Each discussion is enhanced by photographs or drawings. The book provides a complete understanding of the shipping cycle so all associated personnel can work as a team in observing the three Cs of shipping: communication, cooperation, and coordination. The emphasis of the third edition is on containerization and the responsibilities of the ship's officers for the proper and safe carriage of their cargo. The chapter on cargo responsibility has been updated by an admiralty lawyer, and a new chapter, Stowage of Containers, has been written by a ship's master with thirty years of containership experience. The National Cargo Bureau furnished a chapter on stowage of grain bulk cargo. There are also discussions on breakbulk cargo since the same principles of stowage apply in a cargo hold or in a container. A whole chapter is devoted to how the ship's officer can prevent condensation or moisture damage, the most common cause of cargo damage claims. This edition provides vital information as well as questions and answers for candidates taking a U.S. Merchant Marine license examination, and it is an important refresher for those who received their license some years ago.
