New Loss Prevention Bulletin - The Carriage of Rice

The carriage of rice in bags and in bulk is an established trade. However, claims for damage and/or shortages frequently arise. The reasons why rice may deteriorate need to be understood so that, so far as possible, action can be taken to deliver the cargo in a sound condition. Endeavouring to minimise shortages is equally important as in addition to claims for short delivery, some countries may impose a heavy fine.

To minimise the possibility of such claims, a Loss Prevention Bulletin on The Carriage of Rice has been issued which contains guidance on the problems associated with the carriage of rice along with various precautionary measures that may help to reduce incidents of this nature.
