4. One type carries dry cargo, the other carry liquid cargo, however, an OBO ship is designed is designed to carry both.
5.A traditional dry cargo ship is the multi-deck vessel.
6. Her holds are divided horizontally by one or two ‘tween decks, because these make stowage of individual packages easier.
7. Dry bulk cargo is carried in bulk carriers.
8. These do not have ‘tween decks as cargo is carried loose.
9. The most modern type of dry cargo carrier is the container ship.
10. They carry containers of standard dimensions, consequently stowage is easier.
11. Fruit, meat and dairy produce are carried in refrigerated ships.
12. Oil tankers are the most common type of liquid cargo carrier.
13. They are often very large, because huge quantities of oil need to be transported and one large vessel is more economical to operate than two smaller ones.
14. Two other types of liquid bulk carrier of growing importance are the liquefied natural gas (LNG) carrier and the chemical carrier, although chemicals can also be carried in drums in general cargo ships.

29. Liquid dry cargo is carried in tankers.
30. Most are designed to carry crude oil, which is transported to the refineries, or its refined products, such as fuel oils.
31. The oil is carried in tanks which are connected by a system of pipes to a central manifold.
32. The cargo is pumped on board at the loading port by shore pumps.
33. At the discharging port the ship pumps the oil ashore using her own pumps, which may be of the reciprocating or the centrifugal type.
34. Dry cargo is carried in bulk carriers.
35. The cargo, which includes grain, iron-ore, coal and sugar, is carried in self-trimming holds.
36. It is unloaded automatically by buckets on a conveyor belt system or through large tubes.
37. Although the cargo stows itself, it is important to maintain the ship’s stability and to make sure that the cargo will not move during the voyage.
38. Dry bulk cargo is unloaded by huge grabs on cranes or by giant suction tubes which are called elevators.
39. General cargo can be divided into containerized, non-containerized and refrigerated cargo.
40. Cargo which is not in containers presents the greatest stowage problem, because each commodity has its own type of packaging and characteristics.
41. Goods may be in bags, bales, cases or steel drums.
42. Individual pieces of machinery which are large and awkward may not be packaged at all.
43. Cargoes which have a strong odour, such as tabacco and rubber, will taint delicate cargoes, such as tea and rice.
44. Cargoes which re dusty, such as cement and fertilizers, leave a residue behind them.

46. This can cause problems if the heavy cargo has to come out first.
47. General cargo which is not in containers is carried in multi-deck vessels.
48. To help with problem of stowage many types of general cargo are now being put into containers of standard dimensions.
49. Containers, which are 8 feet high and 8 feet wide (2.44 m x 2.44 m) and 20 feet or 40 feet (6.1 m or 12.2 m) in length, are carried in specially designed container ships and loaded and unloaded by special cranes from the quayside.
50. The containers are stowed both above and below deck.
