Anan Shipping Co., Ltd. v. ED & F Man Sugar Ltd. (The “An An”) – SMA No. 3792, 12 Jun 2003

FIOT BULK SUGAR -- PORT -- DISPORT -- CRANE -- BERTH -- DETENTION -- DELAY -- GOOD FAITH -- BERTH -- Owner Award Because the Charterer’s Buyer instructed that Baltimore was the only feasible discharge port, the Charterer ordered the Vessel there despite recent port hazards. Once unloaded at disport, a damaged crane forced the Vessel to wait at berth for forty-six days. The Owners followed through with a detention claim arguing that the Charterers were aware of the anticipated delays and did not make a good faith effort to find another berth.
