ハリケーン「ハービー」などの不可抗力についてのガイダンス

<要旨>2017年8月25日にアメリカのテキサスを襲ったハリケーン「ハービー」が、破壊的な被害をもたらしたのはご存じのとおりです。「ハービー」のような自然災害等をもたらす不可抗力により、傭船契約や数量運送契約などの運送契約の履行に影響が生じる可能性があります。今回ご紹介するクラブ・コレスポンデンツ作成のガイダンスでは、運送契約に「不可抗力条項」がある場合とない場合に考慮すべき点を解説しています。

There is no question that Hurricane Harvey, which first struck Texas on August 25, 2017, was a storm of catastrophic proportions. An event like Harvey and the associated force majeure declarations have the potential to impact the performance of transportation contracts such as charter parties and contracts of affreightment. 

The analysis of the impact, if any, will ultimately depend on the factual circumstances and contractual language. This guidance from our local correspondents describes the principal factors to be considered when a transportation contract contains a force majeure provision and when no such provision exists in the contract.
