The 2008 UNCITRAL Convention, commonly known as the Rotterdam Rules promises to achieve the hitherto elusive goal of a legal unification of international transport contracts.
Its innovative set of rules accommodates such modern trade practices as those treating the carriage of goods by sea as part of wider door-to-door commercial transport operations and those relying on electronic commerce.
It closes many gaps in the existing international transport regime, thoroughly specifying the relation of transport documents to the rights and obligations between exporters and importers of goods, and clarifying the interests of credit and insurance in contracts of carriage.
This remarkable book, which will examine the Rotterdam Rules in depth, is edited and written by international lawyers intimately familiar with the negotiations leading to the Convention in finished form. It proceeds by a detailed analysis of each of the Convention’s 18 chapters in turn, in a clause-by-clause manner, drawing attention to interlinking implications throughout the document.
