In practice, charters often provide that the ship is to proceed to the port of discharge or so near to it as she can safely get1. This provision is intended to benefit the shipowner, and its effect is to substitute another destination to which the ship may proceed2. By proceeding to this other destination and delivering the cargo there, the shipowner equally completes the voyage in accordance with the terms of the contract, and is thus entitled to be paid the full freight3.
The right to proceed to this other destination does not arise unless it is unsafe or impossible
