A question of FOB and container detention
Amir, one of the readers of this blog asked this question..
Buyer booked his cargo with a container shipping company and took containers from them with 10 days of free time. The seller stuffed the cargo inside containers in 12 days, now there is a detention for 2 days for containers.
Term of contract is FOB, but seller did not mention in the contract that he will stuff the cargo inside container in less than 10 days.
Who should pay the detention of containers ?
What is your opinion/answer on this question..??
