English term or phrase: heel
Es geht um eine Transportanweisung eines weltweit tätigen US-Industrieunternehmens ABC. Der Satz ist ein Feld in einem gigantischen Excel-Sheet, das alphabetisch sortiert ist, hier sind diverse Aussagen aufgelistet, die alle mit "if" beginnen, Aussagen davor und danach haben mit dieser Aussage nichts zu tun.

"If the barge on which this material is to be loaded arrives with a ***heel***, ABC will test the ***heel*** for flash point and compatibility (reactivity) prior to loading any material."

Rückfrage beim Kunden brachte folgende Auskunft:
"This would refer to product ***heel*** on the barge and which must be tested prior to loading new materials."

Daraus werde ich auch nicht schlauer.
Versteht das jemand?

Könnte es sein, dass Rückstände früherer Ladung gemeint sind?

Total Terminal Transfer
Throughout the supply chain, it’s common for a small amount of a specific shipment to miss its final destination. This is because a “heel” is often
left in the barge, railcar or tanker. While it is nearly impossible to get every last drop out of the delivery vessel, sliding vane pump technologies can
remove as much of the shipment as possible during delivery.

because a “heel” is often left in the barge, railcar or tanker.
The heel is the amount of product that can’t be lifted
out of the delivery vessel by the pumping system that is
used at the business end of each link in the supply chain.
