INTRODUCTION: CONTRACTS OF CARRIAGE BY LAND AND AIR
Contracts of carriage are concluded like other types of contract. Customers, commonly the consignors or consignees of the goods to be moved, obtain a copy of a carrier’s transport document, consignment note or air waybill and send it with details of the service required to the carrier.

Acceptance may be express, or implied by conduct, 1 such as loading goods sent forward on a vehicle going to the required destination.
