Explanation: This operation is called trimming, not stowage (for bulk cargoes, to level the cargo in the holds for stability).
For instance, for grain in smaller vessels this is done manually by the crew (the usual practice on Soviet vessels, and a good opportunity for the sailors to earn extra cash, as this was/is the job of the local stevedores).
For loading of metal scrap grabs are used, usually magnetic ones.
