The Stichting Vervoeradres was established in 1946 to standardize transactions between shippers and carriers. Standard documents like the consignment note were created to facilitate the legal settlement of agreements in relation to the carriage of goods by road. Also general terms and conditions for transport and logistics were made up.
The Stichting Vervoeradres makes information available on legal subjects around transport and logistics. Users of this information are for example people working in or advising to companies in transport and logistics.
Information is published on this website and in "Weg en Wagen" that is the journal on transport law. On the home page you can subscribe to our newsletter (three times a year).
Every second year the foundation organizes a conference, that is the SVA congress.
