commodities business - Physical Risk & Insurance

A sells to B a consignment of wheat in bulk CIF Damietta, Egypt basis. The vessel was caught in a storm and, despite all the efforts of the crew, the cargo holds were filled with water rendering the wheat completely inappropriate for human consumption. Upon arrival of the vessel at Damietta B is furious and decides not to claim the insurance but to refuse the cargo and to reject payment. Since the cargo was sold on open account basis under credit insurance, A claims the credit insurance for compensation insisting on the refusal of B to pay. The insurance rejects the claim, arguing that this is a disputed receivable because of the damaged cargo.
