The contract of carriage usually implies a term that the cargo is to be carried to its destination in the same ship1. However this is not invariable, and it is necessary to consider how far the rights and liabilities of the parties are affected by transhipment. For this purpose three kinds of transhipment must be distinguished:
(1) transhipment under a liberty reserved in the contract2;
(2) transhipment in the interest of the shipowner where the ship is unable to continue her voyage
