215.     Arrival: specified berth.

The charterparty may specify the precise spot at which the operation of loading is to take place, such as a particular quay, pier, wharf or spot, or, where the loading is to be performed by means of lighters or ship-to-ship transfer and the ship is not to be in a shore berth, a particular mooring, terminal or FPSO terminal1. In this case the ship is not an 'arrived ship'2, and the charterer's obligation to provide a cargo does not become operative3 until she has actually reached the precise spot specified in the charterparty4.
