Business Law Analysis: Carriage of Goods by Sea
C. TYPES OF VESSELS
<Tab/>The vessels are classified in three major types: Cargo ships, container ships and tankers (SEE APPENDIX 3&4)
<Tab/>Cargo ships carry packaged goods, unitised cargo ( in which a number of items are consolidated into one large shipping unit for easier handling) and some amounts of grain, ore and liquids. Also in the cargo ships few passengers are accepted on some cargo liners (MICROSOFT ENCARTA 96).
<Tab/>Container ships are capable of carrying up to 1,600 containers. They are designed to deliver cargo even to undeveloped ports, without the need for berthing (MICROSOFT ENCARTA 96).
<Tab/>The types of containers that are being used are two. The 20 feet and 40 feet containers. In order to send the goods with a container you have to book a space on the transport mean. This can be done either by hiring all the container which is called FLC (Full Loaded Cargo) or by hiring only a space in the container, which is called LCL (Less Container Loaded).
