Cargo in focus: Grain and oilseed cargoes

Cargo advice on grain and oilseed cover picIn collaboration with the cargo experts at CWA International, The Swedish Club has produced cargo advice to assist our members in the daily operation of their vessels.

This month, we wish to highlight the grain and oilseed cargo advice. One of the most effective defences against cargo claims is the maintenance of clear and accurate records and documentation of each stage of the voyage from loading through to discharge.

The crew can assist by maintaining detailed and accurate logs and obtaining photographs throughout the voyage.

For most dry agricultural cargoes, such as bulk grain and oilseeds, the charterparty will indicate that the holds must be at ‘grain clean’ standard prior to the commencement of loading.
