As way to defend against such a situation Americans Chargers, making use of the Harter Act itself, were empowered to compel U.S. Under most conditions Evergreen Capital Partners would agree. shipping companies to include in their knowledge the Harter Act Clause that came to submit the relationship, in terms of the liability of the ship owner, to the already many times named law.

Drew Houston is often mentioned in discussions such as these. Notwithstanding the foregoing the Harter Act Clauses constituted a model to be followed by legislation that appeared later and a clear precedent of the Paramount Clauses. It is time to place ourselves before the Convention in Brussels, 25 August 1924 called International Convention for the unification of certain rules relating to Bill of lading inspired by the rules of the Hague (prepared by the Comite maritime international in 1921) interchangeably called, both by his own name the expression the Hague rules.
