Merging of major operators continues to produce economies of scale but to maintain market share each operator needs to ensure that cargoes are carried safely and are delivered in prime condition. Thus, the principles of stowage written by Captain R.E. Thomas nearly 100 years ago are still as relevant today as they were then in ensuring a satisfactory outturn. Thomas’ Stowage has always endeavoured to make that task simpler for the ship’s officer and, in recent years, the terminal manager and container packer. 

As with previous editions of Stowage, revisions will be found in all parts of the book. Part 2 has revised and / or expanded sections while Parts 3A and 3B contain both new commodities and revisions of others. Similarly, there are additions to Appendix 5 (Solid Bulk Cargoes Which May Liquefy or Have Hazardous Properties) and Appendix 8 (A Glossary of Cargo Handling and Shipping Terms). 

The value of Thomas’ Stowage continues to lie in being able to draw on the wisdom and experience of colleagues, experts, contacts, organisations and friends to ensure that the information contained in the book reflects current knowledge and good practice.

If you live in a remote area, a ‘remote area surcharge’ may be applicable when booking your order on with a courier service for dispatch. A remote area surcharge is an additional fee that is added by a courier service for delivery to a remote location. We will always contact you about this should it ever happen, as it is not a fee that applies during the checkout phase of the online ordering process, but you will be expected to pay it should you wish to receive your order.

Orders placed with us will be dispatched within one to two working days. Dispatch is dependent upon the time when the order is received and provided that all goods ordered are immediately available. If any items are temporarily out of stock, we will endeavour to dispatch the complete order within 7 working days. We always endeavour to ship complete orders and try our best not to ship part orders as a general rule, but on occasion this rule may have grounds for it to be broken due to the varying nature of orders received. We will always try our best to communicate the status of your order should any issue arise that we feel you need to be made aware of.
