Commencement of Laytime, 4th Edition is the only in-depth examination and discussion of the most important financial aspects of laytime, which can affect all voyage charterparties and international contracts for the sale of goods.

- The "Happy Day" - commencement of loading/discharging regarding waiver and estoppel
- The "Nikmary" - readiness and absolute obligation of the charterer to provide a cargo
- The "Mass Glory" - assessment of damages regarding arrival of vessel and setting off laytime
- The "Stolt Spur" - owners using their vessel for their own purposes while it waits for berth
- The "Solon" - exceptions
There are fully revised and improved chapters with special attention being paid to changes in and clarification of the law as reflected by the judgments & reported abritrations, and a large number of additional London Maritime Arbitrations which have been reported.
Finally, there are new sections on:-
- Non-production of bills of lading
- 2004 ISPS Code
