This title combines commercial, shipping, contract, bailment, property and transport law into a treatment of the law of freight forwarding and carriage of goods that is of increasing relevance as globalisation and international trade continue to grow. The work deals not only with ships but also with road and rail forwarding, but only cross-border, not internally within any country. It focuses on the contract of carriage from the freight forwarder's perspective, and deals in depth with the law relating to documents of title, possession, ownership and rights of suit in contract, tort and bailment, which are a source of perennial confusion and are of direct relevance to the contract of carriage. The work focuses on English law.
