Multimodal Seminar Part 2

HFW is pleased to be hosting Part 2 of the Multimodal seminar series.


24 September 2013


HFW, London


In Part 1 of the Multimodal Seminar we looked at some of the fundamental drivers of effective international trade and multimodal transport. We focused on the standard terms in contracts of sale and contracts of carriage, the roles of bills of lading in international trade, the conventions that can apply to the international carriage of goods, and the sanctions and export controls that regulate the trade of goods.

But what do you do when it all goes wrong and goods are lost or damaged, the key commercial terms were not effectively incorporated and the friendly visit from your familiar customs officer reveals some deeper problems?

Part 2 of the Multimodal Seminar will see HFW's logistics team lead delegates through a series of practical case studies to delve further into a number of the key issues and hot topics. We will focus on the critical contract terms, the common defences to claims, consider how damages are assessed and explore why jurisdiction and insurance matter.
