Book Description

April 26 2011 Reed's Professional

This book gives a complete picture of the Maritime Transport Industry so that those involved with shipping can see their own specific field of interest in perspective and understand how the basic model of this mode of transport operates.

The sixth edition of Reeds Sea Transport has been updated reflecting recent changes in the industry. It includes new data and statistics, new advice on safety, a review of ship types including the growth in tonnage and the increase in container ship sizes, as well as the effect of the 'depression' over recent years, all of which make esssential reading for professionals as well as students on courses concerned with Shipping Ports and Transport.

Modern transport professionals must be able to adapt to and anticipate the implications of changes in their industry; this book gives an insight into how management has coped with change over the last century, and enables the reader to see how this essential commercial activity has developed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Handful Book Jan. 19 2013
By Alexandre Winkler - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The book covers a wide range of subjects and it is not limited to sea transportation. A potential reader should examine the book beforehand by taking a look inside where he or she will have an idea as to the above subjects. I just regret that the author mainly cites examples and data regarding the UK reality, including a number of legal provisions and quite specific issues. At any rate, most of the concepts presented throughout the book apply to every professional into the sea transportation and port operations areas.

The first chapters look into very basic concepts, whereas the final ones are more specific. Chapter 13 (named "Safety") covers an up-to-date subject that has been of great concern all around the world. Chapter 15 (namely,"Ports") was of great interest to me, particularly because very few books cover such subject. It is the type of book for a reader to purchase and keep shelved for future reference.

When I was taking a Diploma course in Logistics this book came in very handy. To this day I still read it.
