Port and Terminal Regulations - Second Edition
The use of ports and terminals, whether by shipowners or cargo owners, has legal and financial implications and misunderstandings of regulations and contractual obligations can prove expensive. This book highlights the risks and how to mitigate them.
In this revised edition, the book has expanded chapters on private and commercial terminal regulations. It discusses the legal and practical impact of port and harbour bye-laws and regulations on those parties that use terminals as part of their business. The book considers the relationship between terminal owners and their Port Authorities.
The global shipping industry is ever more vital to world trade, making a second edition of this book imperative. Supply chains have become even more sophisticated in recent years, and marine transportation is at the heart of an efficient supply chain. Cargo managers need to know where their suppliers are based, what are the best local transport facilities, where are the best ports, how many contractors are involved, where goods and title change hands and where problems may arise. Understanding the transportation cycle helps the understanding of risks and how to mitigate them. Contractual obligations are central to this task.
It is important for all users to have an understanding of port and terminal regulations and how they work. The use of ports and terminals, whether by shipowners or cargo owners, has legal and financial implications for all involved in the world of shipping, and misunderstandings of the applicable regulations and contractual obligations can prove expensive.
This new edition contains a number of revisions for clarification and to update the book. It has been expanded to provide more detail, particularly in Chapters 2, 3, 9, 10 and 13. It is illustrated with photographs taken by the author in the Baltic, Turkey and the Black Sea.
