Credit policy

Trade receivables consist principally of voyage-related trade receivables. It is industry practice that 95% to 100% of freight is paid upon completion of loading, with any balance paid after completion of discharge and the finalisation of port disbursements, demurrage claims or other voyagerelated charges. The Group will not normally grant any credit terms to its customers and therefore all trade receivables are past due.

There is no concentration of credit risk with respect to trade receivables, as the Group has a large number of international customers.

As at 31 December 2018 and 2017, net trade receivables are all past due but not impaired as no customer is expected to have significant financial difficulty. All other items within trade and other receivables do not contain past due or impaired assets.
