With FOB (Free on Board) or delivered cargo, you are not tracking a voyage or paying freight, just giving or receiving cargo in a port. Your only concern is if there is a Claim at that port. You can create an FOB Cargo as the basis for a Demurrage calculation or other Claim. Depending on your contracts, you might be able to rebill suppliers and receivers. FOB Cargoes appear in the Cargo List.
You can do any of the following:
Creating an FOB/Delivered Cargo
To create an FOB Cargo, do the following:
On the Cargo Other Info tab, select the FOB/Delivered Cargo check box. Additional fields appear.
For FOB loads, enter the Supplier company in Supplier/Rcvr; enter the Receiver company in the Receiver field on Other Info tab.
For FOB discharges, enter the Receiver company in Supplier/Rcvr; enter the Supplier company in the Supplier field on the Other Info tab. (FOB is not supported on intercompany cargoes.)
Select a Reference Vessel.
Saving the Cargo form creates an FOB Voyage. On the FOB Voyage form, you can combine Cargoes handled by the same counterparty and moved on the same physical voyage, so they can be included on the same Laytime Calculation; they must also all be Reversible or all be non-Reversible. To open the FOB Voyage form, click the Voyage field link.
Select a Reference Voyage from the dropdown list. You can select any voyage no. from the voyage list. This is used by the system to reference the Port Activities details (used for laytime calculation).
Note: The system does not recognize assigning FOB BL Qty across multiple load ports. In such an instance, it is expected that the Laytime Calculator will fall back to the nominated quantity for the second load port.
Creating a Laytime Calculation

On the Laytime Calculation form, clickand then click From Reference Voyage.
