This dictionary covers both the economic and engineering aspects of ports, waterways and shipping. Its centre of interest is the use of the ship in commerce, traffic, transport and economics rather than the ship itself. The engineering aspects are related to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of harbours, channels, waterways, canals, locks and bridges and all types of facilities and navigational equipment. The terms have been derived from the most recent relevant literature, written by scientists in their native language. Where appropriate, short explanations have been added and the gender of all nouns has been indicated. The dictionary is intended to enhance understanding and communication between people of different nationalities working in the realm of ports and shipping.
