The classic Business of Shipping (now in its ninth edition) remains North America’s most comprehensive industry-focused book that explains and analyzes marine transportation and related industries, both domestic and international. This is an authoritative text that is required reading for a newcomer looking to understand basic shipping operations, regulations, and international cargo movement, or a specialized professional seeking insight into other industry segments. Revised and fully updated, the ninth edition reaffirms its status as the cornerstone text in marine transportation education.
