Transportation law is a commercial law subbranch covering contractual relations concerning the carriage of cargo, persons and their luggage, and also transport related operations. The concept of transportation law and consequently the contract of carriage of goods is narrower than the concept of freight forwarding, as it represents only one of the necessary actions that the freight forwarding covers. On the other hand, freight forwarding is a conceptual component of logistics. Multimodal transport is a transport operation involving at least two different means of transport, which is subjected to a single liability regime for the organizer of the transport of goods on the basis of one contract and is, in that respect, similar to freight forwarding contract. A mean of transport is a device designed to carry people and cargo. Transport insurance protects interests that may be endangered by the risks regarding the transportation of goods. The value of goods and means of transport is often very high, therefore the role of the insurance companies is particularly pronounced. The longer the time window between the conclusion and the completion of the contract, the greater the possibility of occurrence of the external effects on the goods. The general rule provides for the transfer of danger with the obligation to deliver, but it is dispositive. The essential components, without which the contract of carriage cannot exist, are the transport of a certain type and quantity of cargo over a specified route and the payment of fare. Other contractual relationships are built around them, the purpose of which is to ensure the movement of goods. Each type of contract, on the basis of which the movement of goods is provided, provides for a specific liability regime.
