Spanish term or phrase: comodato
Un "CONTRATO DE COMODATO A TITULO GRATUITO" entre "EL COMODANTE" y "EL COMODATARIO". This is a contract between a manufacturer and a warehouse. All I can find is that it involves some kind of free lending. What is this kind of contract called in English, and what are the parties called? References to explanations especially welcome. Thanks in advance.
