Resumen del libro

Written by Nigel Draffin, acknowledged bunker industry expert and past Chairman of the International Bunker Industry Association, this book is a highly respected and invaluable introduction to the bunker industry. It provides clear answers to complicated questions and its useful, up-to-date data and illustrations will help anyone in the maritime industry to understand exactly what bunkering is all about. It is just as relevant to vessel charterers, ship operators, marine lawyers and port agents as it is to buyers and sellers of marine fuel.
