The Bill of Lading

The Bill of Lading

Author: Frank Stevens Format: Hardback Release Date: 14/12/2017

The carriage of goods by sea starts off with a contract of carriage, an essentially simple and straightforward contract between two parties, the shipper and the carrier. Very often, however, a bill of lading is issued and a third party appears on the scene: the holder of the bill of lading. The holder was not involved in the making of the contract of carriage, but does have rights, and possibly obligations, against the carrier at destination. The question then is how the third-party holder of the bill acquires those rights and obligations. Analysing the different theories that have been proposed to explain the position of the third party holder, this book makes a distinction between contractual theories and non-contractual theories to explain the holder's position. Contractual theories build on the initial contract of carriage and apply contract law mechanisms while non-contractual theories construe the position of the third-party holder independently. Following the analysis and appraisal of the different theories, this book makes the case that the position of the third-party holder of the bill of lading is not obvious or self-evident; and submits that a statutory approach to the position of the holder of the bill of lading has advantages and would be preferable.

The Obligations of the Carrier Regarding the Cargo

The Obligations of the Carrier Regarding the Cargo

Author: Ilian Djadjev Format: Hardback Release Date: 08/09/2017

This book addresses the legal and contractual obligations of sea carriers regarding due care for the cargo under a contract of carriage. While the general framework employed is the leading international liability regime, the Hague-Visby Rules, the discussions in each chapter also account for the possible future adoption of a new regime, the Rotterdam Rules. The subject matter concerns the standard for the duty of care for goods as codified in the Hague-Visby Rules, but the work also touches upon a wide range of related topics found both in law and in practice, providing valuable commercial, technical and historical links as well as various solutions that have been found at the national and international level to address challenges arising in this specialised area of law. The book is divided into six chapters, which gradually reveal the complexity of the topic. Chapter 1 provides a thorough introduction to the two main transport documents in use, and to the basic logic behind shipping, sea-going trade and related national and international legislation. In turn, Chapter 2 presents an overview of the relevant provisions of the Hague-Visby Rules. Chapters 3, 4 and 5 examine the problems arising out of the insertion of a FIOS(T) clause in the contract of carriage; the carriage of goods on deck; and the carriage of goods in containers, respectively. Lastly, Chapter 6 provides an overall conclusion on the legal status quo and current practice, as well as future prospects. The book was written with a number of potential readers in mind and is intended to open up the topic to a broader audience. It is suitable both for readers who wish to advance their learning (e.g. professionals, practitioners and postgraduates) and for readers with little or no prior knowledge of the topic (e.g. students and researchers).

Cases and Materials on Admiralty

Cases and Materials on Admiralty

Author: David Sharpe, David Sharpe, Peter Winship Format: Hardback Release Date: 30/03/2017

Through judicial opinions, statutes, conventions, documents, and textual notes, this Admiralty casebook shows how lawyers help their clients reallocate the risks inherent in domestic and international maritime transactions, and how lawyers help resolve disputes that arise from maritime transportation. The Sixth Edition updates the treatment of the usual topics and significantly rearranges the structure. A new chapter titled Loss Allocation combines previous chapters on general average, marine insurance, and limitation of liability into a single presentation. This new chapter addresses questions such as whether a potential loss can be reallocated in advance; whether to leave the loss where it falls or to make the duty-breacher pay; and whether the loss is limited, shared, or diverted to another party. The editors have sought to keep the Sixth Edition both comfortable for long-time users and accessible to new users.

Delivery of Goods under Bills of Lading

Delivery of Goods under Bills of Lading

Author: Anders (University of Copenhagen, Denmark) Mollmann Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/11/2016

Probably the core characteristic of a bill of lading is that the original bill of lading must be presented at the port of destination for a consignee to be entitled to delivery of the goods and for the carrier to get a good discharge of its delivery obligation by delivering the goods to said consignee. This notion is accepted virtually worldwide, but the more precise content of the presentation rule differs from jurisdiction to jurisdiction. Furthermore, and of importance, the legal basis establishing the presentation rule differs. With the technological advances in maritime transport as well as in communications technology and the emergence of more complicated trading patterns, a system where a specific tangible piece of paper issued at the port of loading has to be presented at the port of discharge to obtain delivery of the goods seems almost archaic and can obviously create problems. Thus, in practice very often - especially in some trades such as the oil trade - the bill of lading is not available at the port of discharge when the ship is ready to deliver the cargo. The book will first analyse the presentation rule , its finer contents and its legal basis. It will then go on with (legal) analyses of three developments and responses to the problems that the bill of lading system gives rise to in practice, viz. the commercial, the international legislature's, and the technological response. The commercial response analysed here consists of contractual exemption or limitation clauses in the bill of lading set up as a defence against claims for misdelivery. The international legislature's response denotes the adoption of the Rotterdam Rules which as the first international convention on carriage of goods by sea includes elaborate rules on delivery of the goods. Finally, the technological response denotes the possibility of using electronic (equivalents of) bills of lading. The analyses will include a comparative approach examining both English and Scandinavian law to elucidate the issues with greater clarity.
