Is there any reason to have a letdown control valve at the discharge of booster pumps feeding shipping pumps?

I'm asking because I've seen a system to load tankers that has such configuration. The operation philosophy of that system is to keep the booster pumps running irrespective of the demand while the number of operating shipping pumps is dependent on the demand.
