Bulk Carrier Cargo Plans Explained (Load and Unload) (Online)


Cargo plans are an essential communication tool between ship and shore when loading and unloading a bulk carrier. The cargo plan sets out how the ship is loaded or unloaded, ensuring this is done in a safe manner. This course will take you through the contents of a loading/unloading plan to ensure you understand all aspects of the plan. Whether you work on the ship or shore, you must know what the plan contains and how this impacts on the operation at hand. This course will clearly demonstrate how the information is used and the responsibilities in respect to the cargo plan.
