Loss Prevention: cargo Carriage of Rice

(http://www.MaritimeCyprus.com) Rice is a sensitive cargo and claims arising from the carriage of rice are not unusual. However, it is equally common for cargo interests to blame the vessel for any shortages, damage or deterioration irrespective of the actual cause.
In particular, the reasons why rice may deteriorate on passage need to be understood so that, where possible, action can be taken to carry and deliver the cargo in sound condition.

Endeavouring to minimise shortages is equally important, particularly in countries where short delivery may result in heavy fines.

To minimise the possibility of claims due to quality or quantity issues, this Loss Prevention Bulletin contains guidance on the problems associated with the carriage of rice and the precautionary measures that may help to reduce such losses.
