BIMCO attended a very useful webinar on understanding liquefaction risks associated with the carriage of Group A cargoes in the International Maritime Solid Bulk Cargoes (IMSBC) Code. Members are encouraged to view this webinar for a better understanding of the problems that can occur with Group A cargoes.

Members are encouraged to view this webinar, in particular in understanding why due diligence is always required when carrying group A cargoes in particular from remote regions where the probability of problems or accidents occurring is higher.
BIMCO would like to thank the UK P&I club for permission to show this webinar for our members.

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) publish regular Bunker Alerts based entirely on fuel samples and have kindly permitted BIMCO’s Members to access this information.
The Bunker Alerts are not intended to be an evaluation of overall bunker quality in the port or area concerned, but usually highlight a specific parameter within the fuel which has raised a quality issue.
