Transportation of Goods – Case resolution

 

  1. Facts

 

Seller agreed to ship 15,000 tons of dates CFR Port of Ras Tanura, Saudi Arabia, to Buyer in England. Buyer designated the SS Tanura to take delivery at pier 5 in Port of Ras Tanura.  On the agreed date for delivery, Seller delivered the dates to pier 5, but the ship was not at the pier. Because another ship using the pier was slow in loading, the Tanura had to anchor at a mooring buoy in the harbour and Seller had to arrange for a lighter to transport the dates in containers to the ship.  The lighter tied up alongside the Russet and a cable from the ship’s boom was attached to the first container.  As the container began to cross the ship’s rail the cable snapped.  The container then fell on the rail, teetered back and forth for awhile, and finally crashed down the side of the ship and capsized the lighter.  All of the dates were dumped into the sea. Buyer now sues Seller for failure to make delivery.  Is Seller liable?

Suppose, in question 1, the contract had been CIF Ras Tanura. Would Seller be liable?
