Shipping and Transport Bulletin
At last, the Italian Antitrust Authority took a stand on the criteria for awarding maritime state property concessions. Let’s make some clarity.
When does an authorisation under Article 16 of Italian Port Law “expire”? The question may seem trivial but, under certain circumstances, the answer could be not so obvious…
We analyse the issue concerning the sureties to be provided by the concessionaire of a state-owned port area to guarantee the performance of all the obligations undertaken with the concession deed.
With a recent judgement, the Supreme Court came back to deal with an interesting issue: in the field of carriage, in case of insurance in favour of a third-party beneficiary, where the risk insured is loss or damage of goods, what rules apply in the event of a claim to identify the person entitled to the compensation?
Two recent judgments of the UK courts have contributed to the ongoing debate on the criteria and arrangements governing the management of slots by air carriers in the event of suspension or revocation of their operating licence when a financial crisis puts at risk their financial viability. This gives us the opportunity to discuss the issue in more detail.
