Transportation contract, transport carrier, maritime transportation, convention


The Increase of communication tools and development in transportation systems have led to the expansion of international business relations. Consequently, new legal issues have emerged in international trade law. One of the effects of this expansion in the field of international freight transport is the increase in the use of multimodal transport in commodity exchanges among merchants all over the world which, of course, has made lawyers face more challenges. Today, transportation does not follow a single principle and the basis of transportation in various fields, especially in the field of maritime transportation, has changed. This area is one of the most important areas which are the starting point of changes in maritime transportation responsibility. Determining the law governing multimodal transport contracts is very important. Each of existing conventions on transportation is only applicable to one of the transportation methods. These conventions do not apply to multimodal transportation contracts
