Harmonisation of Multimodal Carriage Contracts under Maritime Trade
As we look into the existing multimodal liability system, one sees that there is a lack of uniform and unvarying rule that could govern all the liabilities and accountabilities in any event of damage or total loss or loss in part which consignments are being transported via various multimodal transports. There is basically a mixture of multiple unimodal transport legs that combine to form a multimodal transport operation. These modes of transportation are separately governed by well-established international and national laws dealing specifically with each stage. The liability of each stages is established by separate unimodal convention as there is no existing international regime. Therefore, fixing off liabilities or responsibilities of the operator in the case of any unpleasant event like full damage, part damage or total loss or part loss will be assessed upon which stage, the event or incident occurred or took place.
