FIATA Legal Handbook on Forwarding by Peter Jones

This is not a law book but a book about law. It concerns itself with the large and growing body of law, including international convertions and regulations which govern the forwarding of goods in international trade.


This is not a substitute for professional legal advice, but a helpful guide which will help you to use lawyers more efficiently.


Transportation and insurance lawyer Peter Jones has written the FIATA Legal Handbook on Forwarding with the informed layperson in mind. Well-Thumbed copies of this valuable handbook ought to be on the desks of freight forwarders, lawyers, insurers, brokers, surveyors and carriers the world over.


FIATA endorses this book as an important tool in the development of forwarding professionals.


The FIATA Legal Handbook has been a guide for our industry for ten years. Over this decade, laws have changed, and a third edition was needed. We recommend this third edition to everyone in our industry, and to any one who wants to know the industry better.
