Where shipowners time-charter a vessel and employ it in their own liner service, who will the carrier normally be?

Where time charterers issue their own bills of lading (as is the case with many liner companies who charter-in ships), they will be the carrier. Where the ship issues its own bills of lading, however, the shipowners will probably be regarded by courts as the carrier.
