Joint and several liability in international road freight transport

International road transport enables easy and fast accessibility of various commodities and goods worldwide. The organization of international road transport entails collaborations and interactions of various entities, particularly between the consignor, consignee and carrier of goods. A tripartite legal relationship is thus created between the consignor, consignee and carrier of goods for the transport of goods. This tripartite legal relationship functions successfully as long as all contractual parties meet the obligations they assume under the relevant transport contract.
