What does it mean for commodities to be priced or assessed as cargoes or barges?

  1. does that mean that you purchase a metric tonne for example, on board of a tanker? i.e. the price includes delivery and loading costs and actual commodity is on tanker ready to be shipped?
    Does anyone have detailed information about this matter? Maybe a few links...
    thanks for any input!
