A number not a letter
- Date: 11/09/2015
This minor discrepancy lead to the vessel being denied entry until the paperwork was correctly submitted. Under the terms and conditions of the charter party the vessel was off hire whilst the documentation was amended and an appropriate declaration made to the port. The owners claimed their lost earnings from the commercial manager, who was reimbursed by ITIC under the terms of their policy.
This claim is an example of how a small clerical discrepancy can lead to significant delays and loss.
