This masterclass covers principles on laytime and demurrage for both dry and wet trades. The course examines, in a practical way, the application of laytime and demurrage in the daily operations. It covers the key legal concepts and a step-by-step approach to effectively use the knowledge to work strategically with laytime calculations to boost profitability.

What will you learn?

The Masterclass covers much more than just the fundamentals of laytime and demurrage. It provides a much broader awareness of the commercial and operational use of laytime as an independent profit source, irrespective of which side of the contract you are on. Understanding what the other parties to a contract wish to achieve, is a key aspect of avoiding costly and time-consuming disputes. The masterclass takes a 360 degree look at laytime and demurrage from the point of view that the parties to a commodity contract and a charter party may have different very different priorities, but both wish to avoid costly contractual mistakes.
