Multimodal transport is a systematic combination of different modes of transport such as railway, road and water transport, aviation, and other traditional transport modes that can take advantages of each individual modes and achieve higher efficiency. This paper presents an overview of legal issues concerning the multimodal carriage of goods. The authors focus on the evolution of the international law regulations of the freight transportation with particular reference to the issues connected to multimodal transport. The critical review of existing international conventions and their provisions pertaining to multimodal transportation and the “maritime plus” regime of the Rotterdam Rules is provided. In addition, the problems generated by the lack of uniform multimodal carriage law are highlighted by the authors and the perspectives recommendations concerning multimodal transportation of goods are proposed. These problems will be addressed by means of an analysis of the current legal framework in relation to multimodal carriage and an assessment of how within this framework the law applicable to a multimodal contract may be uncovered.

Transport multimodalny to systematyczne połączenie różnych środków transportu, takich jak transport kolejowy, drogowy , wodny, lotniczy itp. , w ramach którego wykorzystuje się zalety każdego z rodzajów transportu, tym samym osiągając wyższą wydajność. W niniejszym artykule przedstawiono przegląd zagadnień prawnych dotyczących multimodalnego przewozu towarów. Autorzy koncentrują się na ewolucji międzynarodowego prawa regulującego transport towarowy ze szczególnym uwzględnieniem zagadnień związanych z transportem multimodalnym. Na potrzeby artykułu przygotowano krytyczny przegląd istniejących konwencji międzynarodowych i ich postanowień dotyczących transportu multimodalnego oraz reżimu "morski plus" z reguł rotterdamskich. Ponadto, autorzy przedstawili problemy wynikające z braku jednolitego multimodalnego prawa przewozowego, a także propozycje dotyczące multimodalnego transportu towarów. Problemy te są omawiane poprzez analizę aktualnych ram prawnych w odniesieniu do przewozu multimodalnego oraz ocenę, w jaki sposób w ramach tych ram można znaleźć prawo dotyczące umów multimodalnych
