T HIS VOL U M E has been written to explain the company part of a business whose box is the complete civilized global. traditionally, the idea and information of transport administration, as amazing from the sensible talents of seaman send, were transmitted from one new release to the following via notice of mouth. Little has been wear paper, basically as the best exponents of the paintings of steamship administration were too busy with their daily matters to take action. The "working point" body of workers usually are fantastically useful, yet hardly qualify as liter ary craftsmen. it's been my objective, in getting ready this research of the foundations of the "business" of business delivery, to explain that which trans pires within the a number of divisions of a shipowning and working organi zation. Insofar as attainable, the tactics within the workplaces were defined and defined, in addition to the underlying prin ciples of administration during which their judgements are reached. within the strategy of studying the rules and practices which are set forth in those pages, i've got spent ajoy-filled lifetime in associa tion with ships. it's been my luck to paintings in huge and small American steamship workplaces, to function a tremendous shipment termi nal, to take part in developing and placing into impression the rules of a world-girdling American steamship association, and to educate younger males those rules realized from adventure in addition to from precept.
