Dictionary of Transport and Logistics by David Lowe

Book Description

This unique, single volume dictionary aims to make sense of the language of generic terms, jargon, abbreviations and management buzzwords, to say nothing of the legal terms and definitions, that has grown up around the transport and logistics industries. -Provides clear, unambiguous definitions of some 3,000 terms, -Endorsed by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport. -UK and EU terms covered; -A work of reference for everyone in the sector, from newcomers to senior management David Lowe has been actively involved in the road transport industry for more than 40 years, gaining 'hands'on' road haulage and logistics experience and a detailed knowledge of UK and EU transport law. He is the author of The Transport Manager's and Operator's Handbook now in it's 31st year of publication, and has written many other books, guides, study manuals and magazine articles on transport and logistics. He is an active member for the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport and is Champion of the Institute's Freight Transport Special Interest Group. He is also a Liveryman of the Worshipful Company of Carmen and a Freeman of the City of London. Freight transport and logistics operations have become so technically sophisticated that a whole language of generic terms, jargon, abbreviations and managements to say nothing of the legal terms and definitions, has been generated. Vehicle manufacturers now strive to find new terms to describe technical achievements and new products, while legislators give such long titles to new regulations that they have to be identified with acronyms. Furthermore, recent developments in logistics and supply chain concepts have spawned a plethora of management concepts and new IT terms, initials and acronyms. The aim of this dictionary is to identify these terms and, in clear unambiguous English, provide accurate descriptions and definitions. With some 3,000 terms and abbreviations and acronyms included this is the most comprehensive dictionary of its type currently available. It will prove invaluable to readers from all sectors and at all levels from students and junior staff to top management, all of whom may need to source the meaning or relevance of industry terms not generally found in standard English language dictionaries.
