From a reader
Can shipowner cancel the contract or witraw from it if the delay is caused by
the charterer (for example: the goods intended for loading are not ready)? The
delay prolonged the time beyond stipulated laycan, and the shipowner has next
contracted laycan for another charterer so he should cancel this C/P to acheve
the next one.
If this is the case, does the shipowner has a right to
charge the charter the deadfreight or some kind of compensation for losing time
due to chartere's delay?
Thanks in advance.
Anyone help this person out???
