Dry Cargo Potential to Liquefy

Dry Cargo Potential to Liquefy
When carrying a Group A cargo, the IMSBC Code requires the shipper to provide the Master of the vessel with a cargo declaration and show the cargo is safe for carriage by testing representative samples using approved test procedures in a laboratory.
