In voyage chartering, what is the preliminary voyage?

The voyage to the loading port.Β 

When the vessel is fixed, perhaps some weeks earlier, the ship is usually somewhere other than the loading port, employed on another contract (“now trading”). The first contractual obligation of the owners is to bring the ship to the agreed loading port not later than the cancelling date.

What are the usual agency arrangements under voyage charters?

Does a voyage charter commence on the day the agreement (i. e. fixture) was made?
