The Business of Shipping, 9th Edition 2018
The Business of Shipping (9th edition) is substantially revised and updated to make timely and relevant this classic volume. New chapters analyze ever changing domestic shipping operations, environmental rules and regulations and supply chain software that monitors and controls cargo routing, providing a comprehensive and contemporary view of this dynamic and essential transportation mode.
These enhancements mean this book remains North America’s most comprehensive industry-focused volume that explains and analyzes (in an historical context) marine transportation and related sectors, both domestic and international. Two dozen new photographs illustrate important trends.
This authoritative text is required reading for a newcomer looking to understand basic shipping operations, regulations, and international cargo movement, or a specialized professional seeking insight into disparate industry segments. Given the substantial upgrade, the ninth edition reaffirms its claim as the cornerstone text in marine transportation education.
