What are the basic facts everyone involved in international freight forwarding should know?

, Ing. Peter Formela

First of all, one should have an overview of international conventions and treaties applicable to international goods transport. The Conventions are important because they unify the rules for these activities and supersede the laws and standards that apply in the individual countries that are signatories to these Conventions.

In particular, I would like to draw your attention to these conventions and treaties in force in international road transport:

  1. CMR Convention - Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road and the Responsibility of the Carrier

  2. AETR European Agreement – covering the work of crews engaged in international road transport

  3. ADR Treaty – governs the transnational transport of hazardous materials

  4. ATP Treaty – establishes standards for the international transport of perishable food by road freight

  5. INCOTERMS 2010

  6. Agreements covering international road haulage and customs, including the TIR Convention, ATA Carnet System and the Convention on a Common Transit Procedure

  7. International transport of excessive and oversized road freight costs - not covered by any international convention and, although most national standards are very similar, there are differences to be aware of.
