The Dictionary of Transport and Logistics
Freight transport and logistics operations have become so technically sophisticated that a whole language of generic terms, jargon, abbreviations and management buzzwords, to say nothing of legal terms and definitions, has been generated. The aim of this dictionary is to identify these terms and, in unambiguous English, provide accurate descriptions and definitions. The volume is endorsed by the Institute of Logistics and Transport, and covers both UK and EU terms.
