Chapter 3: The Carriage of Goods Convention
This contribution introduces an idea, as the Carriage of Goods Convention does not exist (yet). The objective of the convention is threefold: the harmonization, simplification and modernization of the rules on international carriage of goods. Whereas the existing conventions basically regulate unimodal contracts for the carriage of goods either by rail, sea, air, road or inland waterways, the starting point of the Carriage of Goods Convention is the contract of carriage in general. As the (number of) means of transportation is irrelevant, the convention applies to both unimodal and multimodal contracts of carriage.
