An unhap-pea shipper
A ship was fixed to load a cargo of peas. The ship agent produced all the necessary documentation for the shipment. Unfortunately, they described the cargo as “116 shipments of peas” instead of the 1160 shipments of peas the shippers had delivered.
This meant that the full cargo was not properly recorded and the shippers were not paid for 210 tons. The loss claimed by the owner was EUR 40,250. The agent settled the claim in full which was reimbursed by ITIC.
