Mission and organisation
The Stichting Vervoeradres was established in 1946 to support shippers and carriers when encountering obligations of public and private law. To facilitate the legal settlement of agreements in relation to the carriage of goods by road we created standard documents like the consignment note. Also we publish general terms and conditions for transport and logistics.
We are active in explaining transport law to all people involved in transport and logistics, as well as their legal consultants and claim handlers in case of damage.
You can find Information on our website, in our journal on transport law "Weg en Wagen" and at the biennial congress. On the home page you can subscribe to the newsletter.
