Blystad Shipping & Trading, Inc. v. Wings Investments, Ltd. (The “Aniara”) – SMA No. 3402, 17 Dec 1997

ASBATANKVOY -- CHARTER PARTY -- TRANSSHIP -- CARGO -- DISPORT -- DEMURRAGE -- Charterer Award This arbitration centered upon disputed language between charter party exception clauses. The Owners had to transship cargo due to ice restrictions to the original disport, a task which the Owners’ claim falls under the language of Clause 14 ("if port … is inaccessible due to ice … any demurrage is responsibility of the Charterer"). But, there is a Transship Clause which states that “Owners have the option to transship the cargo at their own time.”
