Bill of ladings - IMB untangles some complicated issues

Whether or not a bank should finance a bill of lading which is not the operative document is one of the questions being looked through in the March bulletin of International Maritime Bureau (IMB).

IMB also reports in their confidential bulletin to members about global container lines that have been cleared after investigation and the increase of US imports of sanctioned Venezuelan oil.

The Swedish Club members can access the IMB Confidential Bulletin 05/2019 through the SCOL website (The Swedish Club Online member area).
