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 his/her 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 his day to day management of his/her chartering risks, including the management of chartering related claims.
