    • Vessel: Select from a list of all vessels: active vessels, deactivated vessels, and if a vessel name has changed, its old name appears here as well.
    • Voyage: When an FOBV voyage is selected, the cargo handlings of all FOB Cargoes appear.
    • AP/AR (Receiver or Supplier): Select whether to consider the demurrage or despatch as AP or AR.
    • Counterparty TypeThe selected type appears on the left side of the form. If there is only one counterparty of that type, it is selected. All cargo handling lines for a Charterer, discharges for a Receiver, or loads for a Supplier are selected by default.
    • Method: Deduction or Time Counting
    • Reversible Selected Ports: To create a Reversible Laytime Calculation, select this check box.

    Note: In the Port/Cargo table, the configurable Barges column displays only those barges associated with the individual cargo (as established in the BL Info tab of the voyage itinerary). Additionally, in the Laytime Calculation, for any activity line to which more than one barge applies, the complete list of barges is listed in the Remarks column.
  4. Select any additional options and click OK. The Laytime Calculation opens.

*Previously created Claims will be listed below the New Laytime Calculation.

  • Note: The "Amount USD" value in the claims section will read 0.00 until an Agreed Demurrage or Agreed Despatch value is established in the Laytime Calculation for the claim.
