Business of Shipping Intensive II (Charter Party Problems)
This advanced course is open to individuals that have completed ASBA’s Business of Shipping I, or ASBA’s Shipbroking and Chartered Vessel Operations course (SBCVO) or Home Study Course: Basic Principles of Chartering, or upon application for those with comparable experience.
Here is a message from the instructor Jeffrey A. Weiss, Professor and Maritime Attorney
I am again pleased to work with ASBA in the development and offering of this new 2 day live seminar. Recall that the Business of Shipping Intensive I was a beneficial experience to all attendees that offered me the opportunity to meet and work with you. I encourage you to attend this sequel as I am going to make it even better.
I will present interesting materials gathered through research, personal experience, as well as many interviews of seasoned chartering and shipping professionals. During the “Intensive II” seminar you will be presented with practical shipping and chartering problems and collectively we will examine profitable commercial solutions.
The problems cover various aspects of time and voyage charter party negotiations and operations to include:
Time charter party hire and off hire; speed/consumption warranties; trading warranties; bunker quality issues; safe port/safe berth issues; maritime liens arising out of charter parties; bills of lading under charter parties; time charter party duration/overlap/underlap; delivery/redelivery issues; voyage charter party recurring issues; freight and demurrage; detention; commencement of laytime; laytime exceptions; G.A. under the charter, and many others.
This course will not cover c/p specific form rather it will be focused on very recent arbitration and court decisions covering both wet and dry market. Also note that the discussion will also include information that I have obtained from interviews from wet/dry professionals.
The problems to be reviewed concern issues germane to both markets that are found in many forms of charter: safe port, safe berth, laytime/demurrage, etc.
By discussing a “problem” within the context of a given c/p form we can establish a dialogue that looks at the same issue in a different c/p with an eye towards understanding c/p language that addresses the issue and best way to protects one’s interest. Prof. Weiss’ intention is to use current decisions as a platform for mastering charter concepts.
I believe that the Business of Shipping Intensive II Live Seminar will be of benefit to all in the industry. I look forward to seeing you again.
