In merchandising, transportation law from Austria, Europe, and around the world is especially important. All legal provisions pertaining to the transportation of passengers or goods are covered by transportation law. Transportation law is characterized by a vast array of applicable legal provisions that are extremely diverse in nature and, as a result, extremely complex.
The CMR (Convention on the contract for the international carriage of goods by road), the A-Sp (General Austrian freight forwarder terms and conditions), the UGB (Austrian Company Code), and the ABGB (Austrian Civil Code) are just a few of the many pieces of legislation that govern transportation law. In addition, the majority of cases involve cross-border situations, resulting in costly and extremely complicated judicial disputes. As a result, it is a very complicated issue that necessitates appropriate expertise and experience.
