UNECE
  • Administers 50 International Conventions and
    Agreements.
  • UNCITRAL, UNCTAD UNECE work together on Door to
    Door issues.
  • Draft Instrument prepared by maritime interests.
  • Conflict between Conventions.
  • UNCITRAL stick to Port to Port.

UNCTAD

UNCTAD CRITICISMS
  • Drafted by maritime interests.
  • Uses maritime concepts.
  • Sacrifices the certainty of existing regimes.
  • Shifts balance in favour of carriers.
  • Introduces new concepts (eg. right of control,
    rights of suit etc).

CMI REPORT ON UNCITRAL WORKING
GROUPMEETING NEW YORK APRIL 2002

Ecommerce Freight Right of
Control Transfer of Rights
CMI Draft well accepted by Delegates
All considered as possible enrichments of
transport law
Stuart Hetherington WITHNELL HETHERINGTON

OTHER ISSUES
  • Door to Door Transport Regime needs to deal with
    conflicts between other mandatory regimes.
  • Performing party definition - preferable to
    channel liability to contractual carrier with a
    right of recourse?
  • Article 5 obligations of carrier.
  • Article 7 obligations of the shipper.
  • Article 9 freight.
