Building on a heritage of distinction in its field, this new edition of Carver on Bills of Lading provides practitioners with exhaustive coverage of the nature and uses of bills of lading plus comprehensive case reference and coverage from two of the foremost commentators on this area of law.

The new edition provides a detailed analysis of the English case law on the subject, as well as cases from a number of other common jurisdictions, and of the common law background to this case law. It also analyses legislation affecting the topic and looks to the future in discussing the impact of the Rotterdam Rules.

The text has been extensively revised in the light of developments since the second edition in 2005, and features new commentary and coverage of the Rotterdam Rules and the Hague-Visby Rules. It also contains coverage of the Carriage of Goods by Sea Act 1992 and the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999.

  • Offers practical guidance and reassurance through commentary on case law and legislation
  • Organised so that each chapter deals with particular functions of bills of lading
  • Expert commentary analyses the legal principles relevant to these functions
  • Covers international conventions governing bills of lading
