We are new to exports. We plan to use FCA Incoterms in the agreement between our company and our foreign client. However, we are concerned about the responsibility we would have as a designated shipper at BL. Thus, a bill of lading on shipment is a record of the exchanged goods received on board. It is a document that establishes an agreement between a shipper and a carrier for the carriage of goods. Carriers (carriers) issue these records to the shipper. Hello Joe, correct me, if necessary. CPBL is non-negotiable. CPBL is subject to the charter part – an agreement between the charterer and the shipowner. in fact, third party in this case, takes the charterer as the owner, it is unknown to the owner of the ship. The shipowner shall have the right to assert a right in the event of a dispute between him and the load on board. Third parties must put pressure on the card planner for the release of cargo,,,, In return, the charterer will settle the matter with the shipowner for a smooth release of cargo.
6.3. Arrival times are not guaranteed by the carrier. However, the delay in delivery occurs if the goods have not been delivered within the expressly agreed period or, in the absence of such an agreement, within the period which, having regard to the circumstances of the case, would be reasonable by an attentive carrier. The party to the charter is the contract which governs the relationship between the shipowner and the charterer. The bill of lading regulates the relationship between the consignor and the carrier (who will be either a shipowner or a shipwreck charterer). If the exporter (the shipper) ships a small amount of cargo, it will require a carrier to transport the goods for it with a bill of lading. If the exporter requires all (or a very substantial) part of the ship`s loading capacity, the exporter may be required to charter the vessel and enter into a lease agreement with the shipowner. In this case, although the seller no longer owns the goods by contract of sale, he is the holder of the title by the contract of carriage, since he is the consignor and holds the original bill of lading. An important question. Let`s first look at some definitions.
4.3. If the goods become a danger to life or property, they may be unloaded, unloaded, destroyed or neutralized in the same way at any location. If this danger was not caused by the fault and omission of the carrier, he is not responsible and the merchant releases him from all losses, damages, liabilities and charges resulting therefrom.
