Extensive capital investment by companies involved in multimodal transport industry has led to a more efficient industry in which customers are better served. The legal infrastructure has kept pace with neither technological development nor changes in functions of participants and therefore, there are numerous legal problems. This text covers the major legal questions encountered by participants in the multimodal transport industry. It offers advice on how to prevent these questions arising. It devotes four chapters to the day-to-day problems of cargo interests, forwarders, operators and cargo handling operators seeking resource for claims. The book provides plans of action designed to eliminate the possibility of legal disputes and claims arising in each of the above areas. It also identifies the deficiencies of the most recent international convention covering multimodal transport and provides concise practical replies to each of the following questions: which liability scheme applies?; what are the financial limits of liability?; and what is the time period within which claims must be brought?
