An accessible introduction to multimodal contracts of carriage, Multimodal Transport Law works from general principles toward specific, technical problems. Adopting an international (comparative) approach to multimodal contract law it addresses such key topics as:

  • Contracts of carriage
  • Transport documents
  • The parties to a contract of carriage
  • International conventions on the carriage of goods
  • Multimodal situations covered by unimodal conventions
  • Conflict of laws
  • The rules applicable to the individual legs of multimodal contracts of carriage
  • The Rotterdam Rules

Providing a close examination of the relevant conventions, this is essential reading for law students, useful for claims handlers and practitioners, and of interest for academics and legislators seeking a better appreciation of multimodal contracts of carriage.

Michiel Spanjaart is an advocate at the law firm Kneppelhout Korthals in Rotterdam, an assistant professor at the Erasmus School of Law, and he teaches multimodal transport law at the National University of Singapore.
