TT Club examines supreme court reverse decision on CSAV burden of proof case

Supreme Court Ruling

A recent Supreme Court decision seeks to lay to rest the way that the burden of proof may pass and be discharged under the Hague Rules, reversing the Court of Appeal decision. This is an update from the earlier report.

The Facts

CSAV carried a cargo of bagged green coffee beans in dry, unventilated containers from Colombia to Northern Europe.  CSAV’s stevedores were responsible under LCL/FCL bills of lading for preparing and stuffing the containers.  During the carriage moisture in warm air rising from the stow condensed on contact with the cold roof of the container wetting the bags at the top and the sides.

This cargo is hygroscopic, meaning that it absorbs, stores and emits moisture.  It was common ground that condensation of this type is inevitable when it is carried from a warm to a cold climate and that industry guides recommend carriage in ventilated containers.  However, it was also common ground that carriage in lined, unventilated containers was a widespread commercial practice.
