CHAPTER 1

Introduction and history

1.1 Transport documents – in general

The carriage of goods by sea is carried out on the basis of a contract of carriage between a carrier and a consignor (shipper).

In practice, a contract of carriage is usually evidenced by a transport document issued after the goods have been delivered by the consignor to the carrier.
