The book also covers all forms of shipping documentation, ship types, trade routes and ports. In providing an authoritative assessment of global shipping, Introduction to Shipping is suitable not only for personnel within the industry but also for those in other professions who wish to expand their general understanding of this exciting and dynamic industry.
