Type of Vassel
A ship is a floating vessel used for transporting cargo across the oceans and through rivers. Ships come in different sizes and arrangements to carry different types of cargo. Ships have served mankind since pre historic times. Modern ships made of steel, equipped with very powerful engines, very large,
operate at different speeds though much slower than trucks, trains, and planes.
Importance of the role of shipping and ships can be appreciated from the fact that ships transport about 95% of world’s cargo (including that by road,rail, air, and other means). The economy of the world depends upon shipping. All attempts are made to make ships suitable and economical for carrying different types of cargo.
