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 third edition emphasizes containerization and the responsibilities of the ships 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 ships master with thirty years of containership experience. The National Cargo Bureau furnished a chapter on stowage of grain bulk cargo. Also included are discussions on breakbulk cargo and how the ships officer can prevent condensation or moisture damage, the most common cause of cargo damage claims. This edition provides vital information and questions and answers for candidates taking a U.S. Merchant Marine license examination, and is an important refresher for those who have already received their licenses.
