Running days or Consecutive days. These are days, used for laytime, which follow one immediately after another.
Running days(also Consecutive days). These are days, which follow one immediately after the other. They are continuous or “consecutive”. For the shipowner this description has advantages compared with “working days”. A “working day” may exclude Sundays and holidays, but a running day does not exclude any day unless expressly provided for in the charterparty. Therefore, the charterer takes the risk whether work is done on Sundays or holidays in a port. It must be noted here that the sequence of the days can be interrupted for instance by an exception or by a custom of the port.
