The book is dealing with the liability regime of the transhipment in a constellation that has received little attention so far. The author presents an interdisciplinary approach in which logistical interrelations and current contract practice are combined with legal theory. The central question she seeks to answer is how the scopes of the Conventions can be demarcated. As their scopes and national jurisprudence are ambiguous, a different mechanism is desired. In a three-step system, mode dependence – primary contractual duties – liability, she outlines possibilities for the parties to create legal certainty by their own.
