Related Configuration Flags
Enable OPA

Sets the OPA in the Voyage Fixture and in the Voyage Manager. Adds a Persistent check box to the Cargo Name form.

Enable Multi Grade

For vessels such as product tankers with the same kind of Cargo in several grades, enables Multigrade Cargoes: Changes the Cargo field to Cargo Group and adds a Cargo Grade column (for the Cargo Name within the Cargo Group) to the Itinerary/Options tab.

  • Each Cargo Name must be tied to a Cargo Group.
  • One Cargo Name must be created with the same name as the Cargo Group.

The Freight Invoice automatically adapts its format to display the Cargo Group, followed by the individual grades.

Note: The setting of this config flag determines which variable is available, and whether the No. of Grades variable is available, on the Pricing Rule form:

  • N: Cargo Type; No. of Grades variable not available

When the Cargo Grade variable is used in a Rule, its evaluation is done based on the order of Grades in the itinerary.
