➤ Voyage Charters
A PERSONAL TOUCH -
WORKING WITH YOU TO RESOLVE YOUR DISPUTE.
Many voyage charterers and, indeed, disponent owners operate with their own additional clauses. Often both are incorporated into the same charter producing conflicts.
Contract interpretation features large in this area of Maritime law. The commonly used phrase of “as previous c/p with logical amendments” being particularly problematical.
There has been an increase of claims for delay in delivery of cargo including the loss of market value. These may arise from the vessel missing the cancelling date or failure to commence the approach voyage in good time. Breach of the safe port warranty can cause damage and delay. All of the foregoing being fertile grounds for Charterers liability insurance claims.
