Ship Operations and Management 2015
Foreword byTony Dixon, FICS
Past Chairman of the Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers
The thousands of ships, vessels and craft that are trading in
the world today all have to be operated and managed. For some
maritime operations, the task is a relatively straightforward one,
but it becomes more challenging as the venture increases in size
and complexity. Ship management and the operation of ships is a
crucial branch of shipbroking.
Anyone planning to study this complex subject with a view to
employment with a ship operator or a ship manager should read this
book as it covers all areas that are necessary for ship operations.
These will include the ship, its registration and classification,
insurance, crews and bunkers. The structure of shipowning and
management organisations is detailed in the book as well as the
ship manager's legal relationship with others. Voyage estimating
and accounting is also discussed.
Ship Operations and Management is also a valuable
reference to everyone who wants to broaden their general knowledge
of the shipping industry and its myriad facets.
