New Book from Kelvin Hughes

Friday, May 07, 2004
Kelvin Hughes, part of Smith Marine Systems, has for many years been a world leader in the supply of nautical books and publications. They have recently been appointed exclusive worldwide distributor [outside of the Netherlands] for an important new book from Sdu Uitgevers in Dan Haag.

This brand new book Tankcontainer Guide is written in English in an easy-to-use format, and provides transparent information to users of tankcontainers. It comprises the latest developments in technologies, working methods, and most important of all, the latest changes in the worldwide IMDG Code and the European ADR/RID/ ADNR.

The Tankcontainer Guide can therefore be used as a reference book, a study book, a user manual and as a manual in the logistic chain of port and transport of Bulk Liquids, Solids or Gases.

The Tankcontainer Guide can also be of great importance in dangerous goods training courses that teach the use of the European legal systems RID, ADNR, ADR and the global legal systems: IMDG Code and ICAO- TI. The Shippers, transporters, forwarding-agents and even the NVOCCs (Non Vessel Operating Common Carriers) need to have knowledge of the proper handling of tanks.

The authors Rob Kruyswijk and Loek Maagdenberg, have over 20 and 40 years of experience in transport education and more specific: tank container operations. Over the years they both come to the idea of writing a Tankcontainer Guide combining the mutual practical, technical, chemical and safety knowledge.

This book can be obtained through Kelvin Hughes Chart Services and their depots around the world; shops in Southampton, Glasgow or through their e-commerce web site. www. bookharbour.com.
