Commercial Law in Nigeria: Carriage of Goods by Sea


The book has sixteen chapters and covers the following subjects: Contract of Affreightment; Duties of the Carrier; Usual Clauses in a Charterparty; Stages of Voyage Charterparty; Frustration of Contract of Affreightment; Cabotage Act; Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA); Bills of Lading; Overview and Comparative Analysis of the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act; the Hague-Visby Rules; United Nations Convention on the Carriage of Goods by Sea (the Hamburg Rules); Rotterdam Rules; Transfer of Property in a Bill of Lading; Bill of Lading and Third Parties; Choice of Forum; Nigeria’s Export and Import Trade.

A matter that impacts on the liability of parties in international transactions involving sale of goods is the quality of the goods delivered under the contract. This matter is relevant irrespective of the mode of carriage of such goods, that is, whether by sea, air, road or any other route. A chapter on export and import trade is, therefore, included to provide information that enables exporters and importers to operate within the confines of the law.
