Development of electronic documents under the Rotterdam Rules

Development of electronic documents under the Rotterdam Rules

25 January 2012

The website Forwarderlaw.com asked the following question to its member law firms and received an answer from Mr Budgen ( Budgen & Co ):

There has been comment on the Articles to the effect that their effectiveness is based upon a prior contract, e.g. Bolero, and they do not give sufficient protection to third parties to whom the right of control is transferred. Do you have any views on these comments that suggest the Rules might not be satisfactory?
