T HIS VOL U M E has been written to explain the company aspect of a business whose box is the full civilized international. traditionally, the idea and data of delivery administration, as exclusive from the sensible abilities of seaman send, were transmitted from one iteration to the subsequent by way of be aware of mouth. Little has been wear paper, basically as the best exponents of the artwork of steamship administration were too busy with their day by day issues to take action. The "working point" group of workers usually are fantastically powerfuble, yet hardly ever qualify as liter ary craftsmen. it's been my goal, in getting ready this research of the foundations of the "business" of industrial transport, to explain that which trans pires within the numerous divisions of a shipowning and working organi zation. Insofar as attainable, the strategies within the places of work were defined and defined, in addition to the underlying prin ciples of administration wherein their judgements are reached. within the technique 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 huge shipment termi nal, to take part in constructing and placing into influence the rules of a world-girdling American steamship association, and to educate younger males those ideas realized from adventure in addition to from precept.
