New Loss Prevention Bulletin - The Carriage of Soya Beans in Bulk

Claims for damage to cargoes of soya beans in bulk are often encountered by the Club, as well as occasional claims for shortage. The nature of the product, as well as the reasons why soya beans may deteriorate need to be understood so that, so far as possible, action can be taken to ensure that only sound cargo is loaded, and the soya beans are delivered in good condition at the discharge port.

To minimise the possibility of such claims, a Loss Prevention Bulletin on The Carriage of Soya Beans in Bulk has been issued which contains guidance on the characteristics of soya beans as well as the various precautionary measures that should be taken to help achieve a sound outturn of this cargo.
