Technical Report On Sea-Shed Conversions Available From MarAd

The Maritime Administration has released a four-volume technical report on the Sea-Shed 'tween-deck, modular conversion system that allows containerships to carry loads too large or too heavy to be shipped in standard containers.

The Sea-Shed concept was developed to allow the increasingly containerized American merchant marine to transport outsize cargo such as heavy industrial machinery and military equipment without sacrificing the economic benefits of unit handling. The decline in the number of U.S.-flag breakbulk vessels, and the trend toward the construction of full c o n t a i n e r s h i p s , has deprived American commercial shippers and the military of ships capable of a c c e p t i n g oversized cargo, while at the same time worldwide demand for such items is growing.

The report was prepared by M.

Rosenblatt & Son, Inc. of New York. Copies will be available from the National Technical Information Service, 5285 Port Royal Road, Springfield, Va. 22161.

Order numbers and prices will be published at a later date.
