This book will benefit time charterers, voyage charterers and cargo traders who move goods and commodities by sea under maritime contracts. It is a practical guide for ship operators bringing together various facets of marine insurance in such a way that it should become an indispensable tool for chartering practitioners.
Essential best practice is written with three main objectives in mind:
1. To give a theoretical underpinning to the practical applications of a charterers' or cargo trader's marine insurance.
2. To assist the charterer in reviewing their own chartering risk exposure and to help evaluate the various insurance solutions available to cover or substantially mitigate that risk.
3. To inform the charterer of the 'essential best practice' in the day to day management of their chartering risks, including the management of chartering related claims.
Charterers' Liability Insurance: Essential Best Practice focuses exclusively on charterers’ insurance issues, but does so in a wide-ranging approach that is designed to be comprehensive. On that basis, this work is unique and, from a practical operator’s perspective, is the first in that area of expertise. This book is targeted at those who have an interest in chartering activity, but do not possess a detailed understanding of the attendant liability exposures; or the means by which such exposure can be managed, particularly by way of insurance protection. It is intended as a general point of reference and therefore deliberately avoids too much detailed technical analysis of certain trades, cargoes or jurisdictions; nevertheless, it will still be of interest to more experienced practitioners.
