The Legal Status of the Consignor under UNCITRAL Draft Convention on the Carriage of Goods
【中文摘要】发货人虽然是一个运输法上的概念，但由于有权交付货物的人往往是对该货物拥有货权的人，通常为货物买卖中的卖方，因而发货人实质上又是贸易法下卖方在运输法中的延伸。运输法中发货人的权利义务规定会直接影响到贸易法下卖方利益的实现。本文详细介绍了《UNCITRAL运输法草案》下的发货人制度，着重分析了发货人主体地位和权利义务变化，并对此作出了评价。 【Abstract】Although the consignor is a concept in transport law, it is substantially also an extension of the concept of seller in trade law to transport law, because the person being entitled to deliver goods is the same with the one possessing title to such goods, i.e. the seller in a trade. The provisions regarding the rights and duties of the consignor under the transport law will directly affect the interests of the seller under the trade law. On the basis of a detailed introduction of the provisions related to the consignor in UNCITRAL Draft Convention on the Carriage of Goods, this paper makes an analysis of and shares some views on the change of the status and the rights and obligations of the consignor.
