Breakbulk is a comprehensive manual about the treatment of breakbulk cargo. The book covers various aspects of breakbulk such as machinery, hoisting and stevedoring tools, terminal planning and logistics, customs, loading and unloading and securing breakbulk, including ro-ro transport.
The book is suitable for port education as it addresses the theoretical and practical aspects of breakbulk. In addition it deepens the knowledge of anyone who works in the port.
