Road Carriers Liability

Home/Land Transport Liability/Road Carriers Liability

“Reliability” of carrier is an important factor for a shipper when negotiating a contract of carriage. This criterion implies both volition and ability of the carrier to indemnify damages incurred by shipper or consignee as a result of the carrier’s default. Such liability may be admitted by the latter at will with no compulsion or enforced through a court decision. Carriers are heavily exposed to such contractual and tortious liabilities. Therefore insurance protection from shippers and third parties claims for damages is essential for cargo carriers, logistic companies, freight forwarders.
