River Plate Shipping Guide

This book is dedicated to all those interested in foreign trade in the River Plate basin and in the southeast coast of South America, particularly in connection with the multimodal shipping transport. The book was first published in 1932 and since then it has undergone periodic updates and corrections which make it the most comprehensive and up to date handbook on the subject. It covers everything from general information and statistics of the country to the most detailed characteristics of each port in the region. It also contains technical information on navigation, information on regulations, cargoes, tariffs and taxes and other various aspects of the industry. It's organization in subjects and detailed indexes allow for easy browsing and the information is presented clearly and with good graphic solutions. The River Plate Shipping Guide is the most consulted reference handbook in foreign trade - both by local and international operators - and the only one endorsed by a centenary institution like the Centro de Navegación.
