Synopsis

With rehoused legislation, a strict liability regime, and relevance for suppliers, carriers and recipients, the law on the ‘carriage of goods’ around our country is an area that many lawyers should know more about.

Contracting out of the default provisions of the legislative code is permitted but getting it wrong can mean that bespoke liability and indemnity provisions are overridden.

This On Demand webinar is for anyone who acts for carriers (from couriers to transport companies) or for those who contract with them.

Pauline’s clients include major marine insurers from both New Zealand and around the world, a number of New Zealand’s major exporting and chartering interests, and a significant number of freight forwarders, both domestic and multi-national.
