WVC 46 - 2 - 322
§46-2-322. Delivery "ex-ship."
(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.
