What is Avery Grosse?
Avery-Grosse is a very old principle whereby all parties involved in a sea voyage (ship, cargo and freight) proportionately share any losses resulting from a voluntary and successful sacrifice. This sacrifice concerns a part of the ship and/or cargo in order to protect the entire company against imminent danger, or special costs incurred to protect the common interest of the ship and cargo.
This principle still exists today and is laid down in international agreements.
For Avery Grosse, the following factors must apply:
- The ship had an emergency which caused deliberate damage, sacrifice and costs to be incurred in order to preserve the ship and cargo that ultimately proved successful.
