Maritime litigation soars

7 May 2014
Statistics from Wuhan Maritime Court show that litigation has more than doubled in the last three years, reflecting the continuing impact on the maritime industry of the worldwide economic crisis that began in 2008.

In 2013, the number of cases handled by Wuhan Maritime Court totalled 1,761, compared with 680 in 2008 and 1,480 in 2011. Many involve disputes in which vessel owners cancel new building projects due to a lack of funds. Others relate to an employer’s ability to pay crew members. In 2013, 620 of all cases, nearly one third, were labour-related disputes, while 204 were brought by shipbuilders against ship owners.
