Abstract : The handbook accents the nature of transportation and related domestic and international business activities. Its objective is to provide basic information for the 'newcomer' to the field. It contains such topics as mechanics of exporting and importing; role of physical distribution; services and assistance provided by various United States government agencies; regulatory bodies and regulation; financing; insurance; documentation; packing; marking and packaging; warehousing and storage; containerization; carriers; ports and airports; and services of international specialists. The handbook is intended for use completely independent of the educational program discussed in Part One, but it could very easily be used in conjunction with that program. (Author)
