Abstract

The work of UNCITRAL on a new international regime for carriage of goods by sea looks set to have a major impact on the law governing multimodal transport, leaving little room for new initiatives and potentially cutting off other options which do not involve a sea-based liability. The continued existence of international Conventions concerning single modes of transport requires some account to be taken of them in the new Convention. The provisions put forward to deal with this appear uncertain as to their objectives and may need clarification in the light of a much closer analysis of the potential purposes which underlie them. The benefit of having a single set of rules governing transport documents must not be overridden by the need to provide solutions to the problems of conflict of Conventions.
