Process in Cargo Handling

£9.99

Product description

From the blurb;

"This book is one of the most important contributions to the literature of cargo handling yet published. It contains 23 papers presented at the Second Technical Conference of the International Cargo Handling Coordination Association, held at Naples in June 1954 and attended by delegates from over 25 countries. The fundamental object of the Association, which is a young but vigorous product of the post-war years, is to co-ordinate discussion and provide information at an international level about methods of moving cargo in and out of ships and ports, and it has given full co-operation to the publishers in the production of this volume.

The book contains an introduction outlining the aims and programme of the conference, and there are special forewords contributed by the President of I.C.H.C.A and the President of its Executive Committee.

Operating methods in the ports of the world have until recent years been very diverse, partly as a result of the varying physical characteristics of individual ports, partly because of a lack of any standardization, in their equipment, and partly because of regrettable lack of interchange of information between those concerned. The rapid development of materials handling equipment and the ever-increasing mechanizations of port working in general opens the way to improving the efficiency and prosperity of ports of all types, as well as of port users, and it is with this prospect that the book is largely concerned.

Fifteen of the papers discuss different aspects of the main theme of the conference "The Ideal Port". The remainder deal with various specialisation matters in the wide field of cargo handling. The authors include representatives of ship-owners, civil and marine engineers, port authorities, shipping agents and brokers, stevedores, and labour and educational organizations; all are experts in their respective spheres."

Excellent pages with some edge-wear. Does have a small inscription on the front flyleaf. Includes dust-jacket in good condition.
