Limitation of liability is a feature of transport law. Generally, personal wilful misconduct of the carrier must be proven by the claimant in order to break those liability limits. Since there is no generally accepted international regime for multimodal transport, other international instruments or national regimes must be applied to the issue. This article analyses the issues arisen from the lack of a uniformal regime for multimodal transport.
