This book covers all varieties of charterparty and bills of lading. It is suitable for use as either a textbook on carriage of goods by sea at university level and for professional examinations, or by commercial men with interests in the area.
There have been many recent developments in carriage by sea which, along with topical issues, are included in this book. Examples are the new standard form dry-cargo charterparties, the Intertanko forms, the development of out-turn loss and cargo retention clauses, bunker fuel quality clauses, the problems of delivery without production of bills of lading, the 'reachable on arrival' clause, Himalaya clauses, and fraud.
This is also one of the few books on carriage by sea to cover tanker parties in any detail
