The United Nations proposed a Draft Convention on the Combined Transport of Goods (TCM Convention); this Convention contains two alternative systems of liability designated the Network and the Uniform Systems. Of considerable importance to Canada are the potential implications of the Draft TCM Convention, and of the choice of a liability system which will provide maximum benefits to Canadian shippers involved in international trade. This study is primarily designed to analyse and compare in detail, the economic advantages and disadvantages in a Canadian context of the two alternative liability systems proposed in the Draft Convention. It is an effort to cast light on the principal economic factors involved and to help in the choice of the most suitable liability.
