About the Publication

This essential guide to the safe carriage, loading and storage of cargo encapsulates the full range of potential issues and dangers around the transporting of bulk cargoes, from the characteristics and risks inherent in specific goods, hold preparation and hatch covers, to best practice when loading and unloading.

A near exhaustive range of cargoes are covered within the guide, including timber, gases, grain, steel and other metals, bulk goods, refrigerated goods, liquid bulk cargoes, packaged cargoes and more. Use of this book will assist in reducing both the possibility of expensive cargo damage and the number of tragic incidents and personal injuries that unfortunately continue to occur.

Updated to reflect the most recent regulatory changes, this edition highlights the most current thinking in the industry and is a compilation of renowned international cargo experts working alongside claims and loss prevention specialists from the UK Club.
