718. Duration of transit.

Goods are deemed to be in the course of transit from the time they are delivered to a carrier1 or other bailee for the purpose of transmission to the buyer, until the buyer or his agent in that behalf2 takes delivery3 of them from that carrier or other bailee4.

If the buyer or his agent obtains delivery of the goods before their arrival at their appointed destination5, or if the carrier or other bailee for transmission to the buyer wrongfully refuses to deliver the goods to the buyer or his agent, the transit is deemed to be at an end6.
