    Practical loading of merchant vessels, 1st edition published 2017.

     

    The loading of merchant vessels has changed drastically over the years. The big shore gangs have been replaced by cranes and conveyer belts and only a foreman and a crane driver load the vessel. In some cases, the vessel’s crew is expected to conduct loading operations themselves.

    ‘Practical Loading of Merchant Vessels’ – a mixture of theory and practice – applies to younger maritime students who are just starting their careers. At the same time it expands the knowledge of experienced workers looking to maintain their professional knowledge or advance their careers. This book is about their everyday planning of stowage plans, loading and discharging of cargo – including lashing the cargo in a more efficient and organized way and dangerous goods. ‘Practical Loading of Merchant Vessels’ is written by Captain Tom Abbenhues. After finishing his training as a maritime officer at the STC-Group in Rotterdam, he has worked for twenty years on various vessels, with a wide variety of cargos. During his time at sea Captain Abbenhues had the pleasure of working along many dedicated and passionate seafarers as well as professional office based personnel.
