With reference to the previous question, which document will be the contract of carriage – the charter party or the bill of lading?

The charter party.Β 

Any third party to whom the bill of lading is transferred may determine the carrier’s terms, exceptions, etc. by inspecting the charter party. The bill of lading in this case will serve only as a receipt for the goods and as a document of title to the goods.
