This volume provides a critical analysis of the carrier's liability under both the Hague/Hague-Visby and Hamburg Rules. It also considers the question of whether or not the Hamburg Rules introduce a different liability regime and materially increase the carrier's liability vis-a-vis the Hague/Hague-Visby Rules.
Focusing on Australian and English jurisprudence, the work demonstrates that, quite contrary to prevailing opinions, the Hamburg Rules do not significantly change the carrier's existing liability. Indeed, in a number of areas, the legal position of the carrier is ameliorated.
On the basis that both international conventions do not differ materially in terms of practical legitimacy, concludes the author, it makes no fundamental difference whatsoever, within the general context of carrier liability, whether one convention or the other is adopted.
