    Supercargo Operations: An Introduction

    £112.00
    If you’re looking for a broad overview of supercargo operations, this will certainly cover off the essentials. It’s of particular relevance to readers looking to direct their career towards a consultancy or supervisory role in this field, giving a good understanding of the industry and the position of a ‘supercargo’ in particular. While some form of shipping-related experience is expected, author Mike Wall does a commendable job of making the subject accessible to complete novices too. No easy task.

    The main object of the marine adventure is to safely carry cargo from its loading port to its discharge port so that it arrives in good condition and as intended. Clearly, to ensure this the cargo must be stowed and carried in an appropriate manner. There are many types of cargo carried aboard ships of different designs and no single person has all knowledge about all cargoes. However, there are some who have specific knowledge and experience to supervise such operations. These persons are usually marine consultants or superintendents who specialise in cargoes and are known as the 'Supercargo'.

    This book is aimed at helping those aspiring to this role in their career progression, choices and actions. Whilst becoming a Supercargo appears to be a natural progression for a cargo superintendent, it is not necessarily automatic. Whilst it might be expected that readers of this book will have some form of shipping related experience, the text is also aimed at those who may have no shipping experience at all. The book will provide a sound basis and knowledge of the many aspects of cargo operations particularly with respect to the supercargo’s role. It is not intended to be a comprehensive compendium covering all aspects of the subject, hence the title – an introduction. However, there is sufficient depth in the material provided to be able to gain a good understanding of the industry to be able to make informed views. You will gain a basic understanding of the role of the Supercargo and the reasons for such assignments. As there are legal implications related to Supercargo assignments these will be covered so that you will understand why you need to protect yourself.


    The various types of cargo and their hazards are covered with specific loading techniques.
    The book has a comprehensive table of contents, table of figures, list of tables and and extensive index.
