This new work acts as a comprehensive commentary on the new UNCITRAL Convention on Contracts for the International Carriage of Goods Wholly or Partly by Sea, and is written by three of the experts most involved with the drafting of the Convention.

It places the convention in its historical and commercial context, and explains the intended meaning of all the principal provisions.

The new Convention provides the basic rules governing how goods are conveyed by sea, and replaces the 1924 Hague Rules, the Hague-Visby Rules and the Hamburg Rules.
