Abstract

In order to examine differences in their understandings of the UN latest uniform sea-cargo rules - the Rotterdam Rules, this survey was conducted among Chinese and some European maritime professionals. The Rotterdam Rules were diversely understood and could cause a further reduction in uniformity. The current commercial shipping realities call for updating legal regimes with regard to electronic commerce and multimodal transport. The Rotterdam Rules attempted to update the legal regimes in accordance with the commercial realities, but were problematic and jeopardize uniform understandings of them and wide ratification.
