The dispute arose when the vessel upon which one of the shipments under the contract was to be carried arrived at the discharge port and found that the berth at which it was to discharge the cargo was occupied by another vessel. In addition, the tidal conditions were such that the vessel would have been unable to reach the berth even if it had been available. Notwithstanding this, the Master gave NOR on arrival at the usual waiting place. The issue for determination by the Commercial Court was whether, given that the berth at which the vessel was to discharge was occupied by another vessel such that she was unable to reach the berth upon arrival, and also given that the tidal conditions were such that the vessel would in any case have been unable to reach the berth on arrival, was the Master entitled to give NOR at the usual waiting place, such that the NOR was one tendered in accordance with Clause 7.

Glencore, on the other hand, argued that the primary obligation was on Suek to carry the cargo to the berth. The argument followed that if there were weather or tide problems, then the vessel must wait until that condition had cleared and only if the berth remains unavailable at that time can the Master give NOR. Mr Justice Burton agreed with Suek and concluded that it would not be correct to interpret the Clause 7.

Whilst the Judge acknowledged that there may be some inconvenience to the buyer if NOR is given when both causes i. Ultimately, the Judge was convinced by Suek's arguments as to simplicity. He noted that Glencore's case would require a re-writing of Clause 7. The Judge saw no need for such re-writing and concluded that, notwithstanding the presence of tidal conditions that would have prevented the vessel accessing the berth, the unavailability of that berth entitled the vessel to give NOR.

The ruling charterparty was on an amended Gencon form. However, this article will focus on the main issues in the arbitration, namely stevedore incompetence and bad stowage. Charterers also alleged that this caused delays in both loading and discharging port where damage to jumbo bags necessitated re-bagging of cargo. In the absence of express provision, the obligation to load, stow, trim is at common law with the owners. However line 78 of the NYPE form has the effect of shifting from owners to charterers the primary responsibility for loading and stowing the cargo. The master has the general right to supervise the cargo operations, if they affect the safety of the ship, but otherwise he has no duty to supervise. In the leading judgement Lord Atkin said:.
