IMOS On-Prem - CP Terms Details

Error rendering macro 'excerpt-include' : No link could be created for 'IMOS'.

The CP Terms Details form includes the details from the Charter Party contract for a specific cargo.

To add or update CP Terms information:

  • To add information while adding a new Cargo to a Voyage Estimate or Voyage Fixture, click on a Voyage Estimate or a Voyage Fixture.
  • To open a CP Terms Details form, right-click the Cargo line in a Voyage Estimate or a Voyage Fixture and click CP Terms Details.


  • For Option % and Opt Type, see Cargo Tolerance Option Types.
  • To specify a Freight Currency that is different from the Base Currency, click the Frt Type/Curr label link to open the Convert CP Currency form:

    • You can specify the number of decimals in the Freight Invoice for rate-based Freight Types (i.e., Rate/Daily).
    • For Lumpsum Freight, only 2 decimals are supported.
  • Bill By: Determines how the cost of the freight in Freight Invoice will be calculated. Options to choose from are BL Quantity, CP QuantityInvoice Quantity, and Outturn Quantity
    • Note: The freight expenses/revenues in the Actual column of the Voyage P&L will derive the quantity portion of its calculation based on the value designated in this field.

  • Freight Type E can be selected for Tows, however, pricing information cannot be entered, and no Equipment Contract is back-created. 
    • Cargoes with equipment and pricing information can be used in the Voyage Estimate, but cannot be edited. When the voyage is fixed or scheduled, the equipment and pricing information that was entered on the Cargo form will be preserved.


  • To save new information, click  or .
  • To update information, click  or .
  • To import Cargo, click , then set search criteria and select one or more Cargoes.
  • To enter detailed information about Suppliers or Receivers, click  or .
  • If Cargo Broker Rules are defined (when config flag CFGEnableBrokerRules is enabled), to add default brokers, click .

Itinerary Tab

On the Itinerary tab, make any adjustments to Laytime Terms and other information for ports.

Itin Options Tab

Note: Adding data to the grids on this tab is not required. Data on the Itinerary tab drives the creation of the Voyage Fixture and the subsequent scheduled voyage's itinerary.

On the Itin Options tab, you can record the load and discharge options as specified in the Charter Party.

Pricing or Price Matrix Tab

On this tab, record the pricing options associated with the Cargo for specific load/discharge port options. Based on the load/discharge ports used in the voyage created from this Fixture, the associated Freight Rate and Extra Freight Terms are added to this table. For more information on this tab, see the COA Pricing tab.

  • To use Advanced Pricing to create configurable rules for pricing contracts, select the Advanced check box.
  • IMOS does not support Top-off or Reverse Top-off in connection with Interservice Cargoes. Scenarios where this support would be useful arise only rarely, typically in the following way:

    • The Cargo is set for Reverse Top-off, with both discharges set to occur at the same port.
    • Only part of the Cargo is discharged under the inbound voyage; the remainder is left on board, to be discharged on the following outbound voyage.
    • The recommended solution is to split the Cargo into two Cargoes.
  • To automatically update the pricing lines in the Voyage Fixture from the actual voyage when the Freight Type is set to Use Price Matrix, click the Update from Opts button. Price lines are populated for any unique pair of Load and Discharge options that do not already exist in the Voyage Fixture.

Rebill Overrides Tab

Occasionally, contracts are negotiated in which standard costs that are normally rebilled are absorbed instead. You can add these costs on the Rebill Overrides tab to ensure that they are not mistakenly rebilled.

  • If a cost on the Rebill Overrides tab is added to a voyage, it will not be rebilled. This affects both P&L and invoicing aspects of the voyage.

  • If a voyage includes multiple cargoes, and one or more of those cargoes overrides a normally rebillable standard cost, that override will be applied to all cargoes on the voyage.

Cargo Bunkers Tab

On the Cargo Bunkers tab (for the relevant Vessel Types with the corresponding bunker consumption), make any adjustments.

When a value other than Disabled is selected for one of the selections, a grid for the relevant fuel types appears. For each fuel type, the system populates the relevant consumption rate (from the Vessel form), the required number of days, and the total consumption. These values can be overridden. The number of days calculated for each fuel type also depends on the itinerary and its considerations of high sulfur and low sulfur. The following selections are available:

  • Heating Cons (only for Tankers–Type code T)
  • Cooling Cons (only for Gas Carriers–Type code G)
  • IGS Cons (only for Tankers–Type code T and Gas Carriers–Type code G)
  • Reliq Cons (only for LNG Carriers–Type code L)
  • Cleaning Cons (only for Tankers–Type code T and Gas Carriers–Type code G): This type of consumption has four modes:
    • Disabled (default): No cleaning consumption is calculated for this cargo.
    • Auto Load: There is 1 day of cleaning consumption at the first load port. The fuel type (HS or LS) is updated every time the port is changed.
    • Auto Disch: There is 1 day of cleaning consumption at the last discharge port. The fuel type (HS or LS) is updated every time the port is changed.
    • Manual (automatically selected with any manual input): Cleaning consumption is associated with the last discharge port, but no automatic update is done if the port is changed.

Broker Grid

In the Broker grid, add information about brokers and commissions.

 Related Configuration Flags
Voyage Estimate Show Cranes in Itinerary Grid

When enabled, the Cargo tab in a Voyage Estimate/Voyage Fixture/Voyage will have a new column C, to indicate the use of Cranes in the specific port. This column will only be visible for bulk vessels, and its value can be editable from the Cargo tab in the Itinerary, the CP Terms Details form, or the Itinerary Details form of that port.

Enable Igs by Default

When enabled, when creating/importing a cargo in a Voyage Estimate/Voyage Fixture/Voyage, the IGS consumption mode is automatically set to Auto Disch.

Default Overage Xfrt Pct

After a value is specified in this flag, an Extra Freight Term for Overage Percent (OP) is automatically added to any Cargo that does not have one, having the specified percentage value.

Default Rev All for Tankers

For cargoes created within the Voyage Estimate, Voyage Fixture, and Voyage Manager, if the selected vessel is a tanker (or if no vessel is selected, and the default Vessel Type is tanker), the Reversible All Ports check box is automatically selected on the CP Terms Details form when this flag is enabled.

Estimate Cargo Default Broker

On Voyage Estimates, sets a default broker for cargoes, basis broker specified.

Estimate Cargo Default Commission

On Voyage Estimates, sets a default brokerage commission amount.

Manual Max Lift Cp Quantity

When enabled, when using Auto Calculate by Max Lift in a Voyage Estimate, the CP Qty for a cargo will never be automatically set by the maximum lift calculation; only the L/D quantities will change. Users can manually change the CP Qty, if desired.

Show Liner Terms

Adds liner terms fields (OExp$/t and LinerExp) to the Voyage Fixture and Voyage Estimate. These fields are also synced with the corresponding OExp$/t and LinerExp fields on the Cargo form.

Show Remittance in Cargo

Adds Remittance BankInvoice %Payment Terms, and Balance % fields to the CP Terms Details, Cargo COACargoVC In COA, and VC In forms. Also adds a Remittance Bank field to Time Charter Other Information. Remittance information flows between these places; for example, fixing an Estimate will transfer the remittance information.

  • On a Cargo COA, VC In, or Time Charter Out, changing the Company clears the remittance bank information, as this may change with a change to the Company.
  • On a VC In COA or Time Charter In, changing the Owner clears the remittance bank information, as this may change with a change to the Owner.
  • A default value for the Remittance Bank for each currency can be selected in the Address Bank Links tab entry for Cargo COA, Cargo, and Time Charter Out (Other Information) contracts, but it can be changed later.
Default Discharge Demurrage Des Percent

When enabled, you can specify the default percentage of the loading demurrage/despatch rates the discharge demurrage/despatch rates default to.

Voyage Estimate Use Min Cp Quantity for Charterer Opt

Y = If using Auto Calculate by Max Lift Qty in a Voyage Estimate, if the option type for a cargo is a charterer's option, its minimum quantity will be used as a restriction for lift quantity.

N = The CP Qty for the cargo will instead be used for the lift restriction.

Default Cp Date on Cargo

When enabled, the CP Date of any Cargo back-created from a Voyage Estimate will default to the current date.

Use Fixcar Exch Rate

Forces Freight Commission Invoices to use the Exchange Rate on the CP Terms Details form. (For Freight Invoices, the Exchange Rate is always pulled from CP Terms Details regardless of how this flag is set.)

Cargo Bunker Ramp Factor Disch

The value set in this flag is used as the factor applied to the Heating/Cooling consumption at the Cargo's last Discharge port.

Enable Itinerary Laycan Fields

Adds Laycan From and Laycan To columns to this form.

  • When CFGChartererView is enabled, these columns will be named Window From and Window To.
  • When CFGVoyapiValidateCargoLaycanForPort is enabled, the Laycan dates will be validated against the ETA/ETD of the voyage. If CFGVoyapiValidateCargoLaycanForPort is not enabled, validation will be against the Laycan dates in the header of the Cargo form.
