Where can information be obtained on looking after a particular bulk cargo whilst on a voyage?

For most “problem” dry bulk cargoes, in the BC Code. 

Charterers or the shipowners should also have issued instructions concerning the particular cargo. The owners’ P&I club may publish loss prevention literature and website information on the commodity (e. g. the UK Club’s Carefully to Carry booklets and brochures). The P&I club managers should be able to give advice about any “problem” cargo. A textbook (e. g. Thomas’s Stowage) may contain advice, although it should be checked for validity.

If cargo was not discharged in “apparent good order and condition” and there was a claim against the company, what evidence might be useful in resisting the claim?

What is the carrier’s legal obligation towards the cargo when the ship is at sea?
