Long acknowledged as the most comprehensive and authoritative book in its field, The Business of Shipping describes and analyzes the shipping business as it exists today. It will be useful to professionals who are currently specialists in one branch of the business, but only marginally knowledgeable about its other aspects. It will also familiarize transportation students and newcomers to the industry with the many facets of the shipping enterprise and the international movement of cargo. It can serve as the basic volume for any course in marine transportation. The topics covered include the significance of marine transportation; government involvement in regulating the industry; tramp shipping; liner service; the passenger cruise business; vessel management; cargo documentation; shoreside activities, such as terminal operations, ship husbandry, and bunkering procedures; and the actual functioning of the many segments of a shipping company operation. The book's scope is broader and more attuned to the working of the industry than most other books on marine transportation. While a good deal of the material from the sixth edition has been retained, new and up-to-date information has been added to reflect the many recent developments in the industry.
