In addition, the different types of laytime and its exceptions besides the concept of demurrage and despatch, which are related to the concept of laytime when the charterer cannot perform the loading or discharging operation on time or when he performs it sooner than agreed time, are discussed. Also, the incorporation of the laytime and demurrage clauses in the international sale contracts and charterparties and their interpretation are discussed under the legal systems of England and the USA as the second part of this work to analyse these two major systems based on a comparative method.
