At a seminar hosted by ASBA in Stamford on 10 November the NYPE 2015 time charter party was presented to ASBA members.
The LINERTIME is a deep sea time charter party. Originally published in 1968 and revised in 1974 and 2015. The 2015 revision was a technical update where the latest editions of BIMCO’s core clauses replaced the earlier versions of the same. The latest edition of this contract is LINERTIME 2015. Copyright in LINERTIME 2015 is held by BIMCO.
The New York Produce Exchange Form (NYPE) is the most widely used standard time charter party in the dry cargo sector. NYPE 2015 was developed in cooperation between BIMCO, the Association of Shipbrokers and Agents (ASBA), who are the copyright holders of the form, and the Singapore Maritime Foundation (SMF). The latest edition of this contract is NYPE 2015.
2015 never really took off, even though the global economic activity looked stronger earlier in the year. The negative indicators seen at the end of 2014 were not overcome, and we saw a significantly lower level of growth for global GDP in 2015 than in the previous five years. This was primarily due to the struggling emerging markets and developing economies, led by changes in China’s economic focus.
After 18 months touring the world to promote the use of NYPE 2015, BIMCO’s campaign team concluded their seminar series in front of enthusiastic audiences in Rotterdam and Hamburg.
