Transport and forwarding agency right
The transport of goods is marked by a huge number of partners with in each case individual interests. Out of this the different contract duties of every singles arise. The legal relations between the partner as well as the mutual rights and duties are often difficult to see through. There comes that depending on the concrete contractual relationship different regulations find use.
The national transport right is regulated since the standardization by the transport right reform law (from the 6/25/1998) in the essentials in §§407 following HGB. Beside the rights and duties the regulations contain special liability norms and special periods of limitation and exclusion terms are valid. The cargo right of the HGB is carrier independent, i.e. it finds use to the transportation of goods to country, on inland waters or with airplanes.
From the regulations of the HGB can become under certain conditions and in certain extent by general terms of business (e.g., VBGL, ADSp, ALB) soaked off.
The international transport right, so the international goods traffic is regulated by numerous carrier specific international arrangements. Thus is valid, for example, in the international street goods traffic the CMR.
