What image automatically comes to mind when someone says 'Shipping Industry'?
Cargo or Passenger Ships? Men and Women in Uniform?
You are partially right.
This book has been written with a clear focus to provide youngsters, and their parents, who want to consider shipping as a career option, to gain a formal insight of all the roles that exist in the shipping industry, besides becoming a sailor on a ship.
Readers should always remember that ship owners, the ships themselves, and the personnel who sail on them, are the main reason for this industry's existence, and that the numerous support segments and roles mentioned in this book, exist only because of transportation of goods, and people, by sea.
