For those who still believe that the transport of cargoes is a static study, think again. New products arrive on the market each year. Traditional products that have been in decline suddenly receive a commercial impetus only to find that the hiatus of several years, even generations, since they were transported in volume has interfered with our knowledge of important truths. New trade routes are constantly developing. All of this calls for great care to be exercised in the rotation of products in cargo tanks and ships' holds.

Although a primary aim of this book is to assist the safe, accident- and incident-free carriage of goods by sea, and another the drafting of comprehensive carriage contracts as between traders, shippers, receivers, shipowners and charterers in an effort to lift what might be otherwise turgid text, the reader will find snippets of interest covering the history and geography of certain products, accompanied by details of their production and end-use. Readers will be able to understand the purpose of the product movement and its geography, as well as its safe carriage.
