            Clause Paramounts inserted in all C/P and has the effect of Incorporating Hague or Hague Visby or Hamburg Rules to the contract of Carriage.
            Clause Paramounts requires that all B/L issued to incorporate such Rules/Act so that the Consignee (who may be in some other country) always knows the rules under which carriage is done. The same is also inserted in C/P so that the Shipowner and Charterer agree to the condition of Carriage prior signing the C/P.

                                    Where there is a chain of events leading to a loss, the proximate cause is the most dominant and effective cause, not the nearest cause in time. An insurer is liable for any loss proximately caused by a peril insured against, but, he is not liable for any loss not proximately caused by a peril insured against.

                                        3 common law obligations (as to seaworthiness, deviation, reasonable despatch) are basic obligations of all carriers.

                                        6 common law exceptions (act of God, Queen’s enemies, inherent vice, defective packing, fraud, jettison/general average) protect the carrier from liability, unless he is negligent, if his vessel was unseaworthy at the start of the voyage, or if there was a serious deviation from the contract (e.g. cargo taken to a non-agreed port, etc.).
