Updated and expanded to include new equipment and also new documentation relating to bills of lading and charter-parties, this new edition of Peter Brodie’s dictionary provides a reference tool for all of those who use or operate cargo ships, both tramp and liner, or who are concerned with their use. This includes ship operators, forwarding agents, chartering agents and port agents as well as importers and exporters.

The principal areas covered are:

  • voyage and time charters
  • documentation, including bills of lading
  • ship types and their gear; ports, their equipment and facilities
  • cargoes and their packing
  • geographical and weather features.

With few exceptions, standard charter-parties and bills of lading are in English, as are a great number of textbooks. Consequently, French speaking students following the various college and university courses in Shipping and Shipbroking are expected to find this dictionary of great practical use.


We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
