Terms & Glossaries of Shipping and Trading
Allision means the striking by a moving vessel and a stationary object.
Allision is a violent striking (such as in a collision) with a fixed object. This is in contrast with “vessel contact” with a fixed object such as would be made with bridge fenders in the ordinary course of say a tug and barge passing under a bridge.
