STUDY ON INTERNATIONAL COMBINED TRANSPORT OF GOODS CONVENTION

This study concludes that, on the basis of nearly 100 interviews with shipper, transport, insurance and financial interests, and a mail survey of 3,300 Canadian importers and exporters: (1) present systems of international multimodal cargo transport, insurance, and documentation are satisfactory to many Canadian trading companies; (2) transport costs are not a major component of the delivered price of goods; and (3) the loss and damage of goods is insignificant. Other conclusions and observations appear on pages 11 and 12 of the report.
