221. Notice of readiness and the charterer's duty to load.

The shipowner must not only ensure the vessel becomes an 'arrived ship'; he must also give the charterer notice, normally under an express term in the voyage charterparty1, that the ship has arrived and that she is ready to load her cargo at the place specified in the charterparty2. Until such notice has been received by the charterer, his obligation to provide a cargo does not arise3, and the charterparty may expressly postpone that obligation until the expiry of a specified period after the notice is received
