Interlegal consulted one of the leading container cargo freight forwarders in Ukraine upon the scope of responsibility for cargo shortage detected in the country of destination.

In particular, at the Client’s request, Interlegal experts performed complex analysis of transportation chain and obligations of engaged parties in respect of cargo safety on the route to the port of discharge.

The analysis included assessment of the following: provisions of freight forwarding agreement under which the services were rendered; standard terms and conditions of transportation provided by the container liner carrier engaged in carriage by sea; terms of subcontracts and other agreements concluded between the freight forwarder and the third parties in the cargo owner’s interests. Special attention was drawn to specialized regulations of national legislation, English law and international practice in order to distribute responsibility between freight forwarder and container liner carrier for cargo shortage during carriage by sea.

As the result, Interlegal experts drafted legal opinion and provided practical recommendations upon minimization of the Client’s possible risks related to the forwarding of export cargo in containers from Ukraine.

Interlegal experts Karina Gorovaya and Olena Ptashenchuk worked upon the case.
