This sixth edition of Thomas’ Stowage retains the format of previous editions, thus providing quick reference to procedures and individual commodities. Part 2 and Part 3 have been extensively revised. In particular, entries in Part 3 have been amended where necessary with particular attention given to dangerous goods and bulk cargoes, the rationalising of entries has also been progressed.
Thomas’ Stowage continues to be regarded as the definitive reference on the subject and is recommended by many organisations with an interest in the safe handling and carriage of cargoes.
It is an essential source for ships’ officers; the freight operations and insurance departments of ship owners and operators; ship agents; terminal operators; freight forwarders; container packers; maritime lawyers; training schools and marine insurance companies.
