This title is designed for those whose professional activity is related to the carriage of goods. Whether it is for the purpose of loss prevention, the assessment of risks or for handling a claim, a better understanding of how different goods are affected by the dangers of transport and how they should be packed, conditioned and treated to endure the transport is often necessary. Author Christiaan Brans draws from his own experience as a surveyor in the daily practice of cargo surveying. This book offers an accessible and understandable description of the characteristics of a variety of goods, the type of damages expected and, most importantly, the way to react if and when damages occur.
