Obligations and Liabilities of the Carrier

Conference paper


The Rotterdam Rules follow the model of the Hague-Visby Rules by imposing specific obligations on the carrier, such as to load, handle and stow the goods. However, the Rotterdam Rules impose two further obligations resulting from the extended scope of the Rotterdam Rules: they are the obligations to receive and deliver the goods. Furthermore, under the Rotterdam Rules the carrier is bound to exercise due diligence to make and keep the ship seaworthy not only at the commencement of the voyage but also during the entire voyage by sea.
