Pages 34

The liability system governing the international carriage of goods by air is hardly in the spotlight of either the unimodal or the multimodal literature and practice. It lives in the shadow of the system regulating the international carriage of passengers by air which is considered more glamorous in terms of litigation exposure. It is also regarded as a special case in multimodal transport due to its limited operational connectivity with other modes of transport. It occasionally gets its 15 minutes of fame as a result of its dependence on road carriage. Yet, it is not at the forefront of the discussions on how to regulate multimodal contracts of transport.
