(810 ILCS 5/2-322)
(from Ch. 26, par. 2-322)
(1) Unless otherwise agreed a term for delivery of goods "ex-ship"
(which means from the carrying vessel) or in equivalent language is not
restricted to a particular ship and requires delivery from a ship which has
reached a place at the named port of destination where goods of the kind
are usually discharged.
(2) Under such a term unless otherwise agreed
(a) the seller must discharge all liens arising out
of the carriage and furnish the buyer with a direction which puts the carrier under a duty to deliver the goods; and
(b) the risk of loss does not pass to the buyer until
the goods leave the ship's tackle or are otherwise properly unloaded.
