Ask an Expert: Soya bean cargoes in bulk
Launching the first interview of the 'Ask an Expert' video series, Dr. Stephanie Heard, Food Scientist with CWA International, joins Captain Anuj Velankar of the UK P&I Club, to explore the main issues and claims that arise during the transport of soybean cargo. The USA and Brazil dominate the global production of soy beans, with Brazilian beans usually solely bound for China, and American beans exported to the rest of Asia and Europe.
Dr. Heard maps the fascinating journey of the beans from their origin to their consumption, outlining the care required, and the typical disputes that can arise on the cargo's voyage across the seas. There is also further discussion on issues such as claims processes, loss prevention guidelines and best practice.
