Don’t assume technological shortcuts - lessons from the Court of Appeal in MSC Eugenia


Last week, the Court of Appeal handed down judgment in the MSC Eugenia case - MSC Mediterranean Shipping Co SA v Glencore International AG [2017].

In doing so, the court warned carriers about the use of technological shortcuts without reflecting this in their agreements, reminding parties of the need to comply with their particular contractual requirements.

This case offers a salutary reminder to the shipping industry that proper investment in cyber-security (both in terms of the technology used and in the training given to personnel) is critical.
