Carrier liability

IUNO is ready to assist – no matter if you are the shipper, the carrier or the insurer.

In general, the carrier is subject to strict rules when it comes to liability. But not all claims filed against a carrier are justified. And even if the carrier is liable the rules concerning limitation of liability and insurance cover must be taken into account. It may also be relevant to consider taking recourse action against a sub carrier.

IUNO can help you to impose or avoid carrier liability. We can assist from the initial claim and if necessary all the way until the Supreme Court has handed down a ruling.

Aviation

Carriage by air is the most modern and fastest growing mode of transport.

IUNO can assist air carriers and other players with all aspects of aviation, both regarding passengers and goods.

Conditions of carriage

The conditions of carriage must be drafted with careful attention to the exact modes of transport in question, and whether they are domestic or cross border. Depending on whether you are the shipper or the carrier you have different requirements and interests that the conditions of carriage must address and reflect.

IUNO can assist you with the drafting or understanding of the often long and complex conditions of carriage that are used throughout the transport industry.

When handling a domestic or a multimodal transport it may be decisive whether the contract of carriage provides for limitation of liability. If not, the carrier may be obliged to pay out full compensation. Frequently, several carriers end up in a dispute about liability.

IUNO can assist with carefully drafted conditions of carriage in order to make sure that it is clear who is liable and that the carrier may apply back-to-back liability cover.
