The book covers: ship types and the parts of ships relating to the handling and stowage of cargo * the cargoes themselves (including many bulk cargoes and heavy lifts) * dedicated terminals and their equipment and accessories * cranes * container types * port equipment, such as fork-lift trucks and accessories * other handling equipment. There are about 800 terms and definitions, including over 200 new or expanded terms since the second edition, all listed in alphabetical order. The book includes over 150 illustrations, nearly double the previous edition. Captions provide additional information on other relevant objects in the photo, where, for example, the term being illustrated has been photographed surrounded by other equipment ISBN: 9781850443407
