General conditions for road transport
The CMR Convention of 1956, which regulates the carriage of goods by road for hire or reward, does not answer all the questions. On the reverse side of the CMR consignment notes issued by the recognised federations, including Febetra, there are (uniform) general conditions of transport. These were updated by the three federations in the autumn of 2017.
These general conditions of transport can be considered as an addition to the CMR Convention. They regulate matters such as waiting times, liability for loading and unloading operations, payment terms, etc.
General terms and conditions have legal force if the other party was aware of them and accepted them, either explicitly or tacitly.
