The stowage of all manner of different types of cargoes, largely manufactured goods, was an art. Not only had the right cargo to come out at the correct discharging port, and not be buried under a lot of other cargoes, but loading had to be such as to ensure the stability of the ship. It has been said, perhaps unkindly, that liner shipowners of former years were more concerned with the looks of their ships than with service to their customers, the shippers, although naturally good stowage was also to the benefit of shippers and the service itself increasingly an extension of the mass-production line.

It was during this period that the principle of general average probably emanated, namely that when it became necessary to jettison cargo in order to lighten the ship, this was regarded as for the good of all and accordingly compensation should be contributed by all parties to the common venture. On the other hand, no principle of salvage was known, namely payment to those assisting or saving a vessel in distress. • Responsibilities/obligations of those in shipping: this covered the rules governing chartering (hiring) of the whole or part of a vessel, the implied authority of the master, for example, to effect urgent repairs, or purchase equipment in order that the voyage could proceed; and the general subject of special loans to those engaged in maritime ventures.

What was left was a code of maritime laws which has been described as the “Maritime Code of Europe”. This was the first comprehensive code developed by any major state at the time. It is not significant in the public law context, as illustrating the principle of the freedom of the seas; its significance lies in its comprehensive coverage of all aspects of maritime business and the fact that it drew heavily on earlier legal systems: Rhodian and Roman law as well as the Visby, Oleron and Hanseatic codes.
