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.


Blackwell North Amer
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. 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, abbreviations and acronyms included this is the most comprehensive dictionary of its type currently available. It will prove valuable to readers from all sectors and 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.
