This book considers the liability of the multimodal transport operator, clearly setting out the current framework on multimodal transport and offering a contextual analysis the position under the key conventions. The book critically evaluates the effectiveness and feasibility of the existing or future rules on international multimodal transport through the existing case law of major jurisdictions such as the UK, and the US.The book includes coverage of The United Nations Convention on International Multimodal Transport of Goods (1980), UNCTAD/ICC Rules for Multimodal Transport Documents, and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea (Rotterdam Rules). The book also addresses the current debate in the EU as to whether a regional legal instrument on multimodal transport should be enacted, and considers the implications of such a regional solution including potential conflict with the Rotterdam Rules. The book explores the drawbacks of the existing or future multimodal transport liability systems and provides possible solutions where there gaps exist in multimodal transport regimes.This book will be suitable for students and scholars of maritime and commercial law, transport studies, as well as commercial/transport lawyers, claims managers, freight forwarders and underwriters.
