58. Carriage by road and rail.

The international carriage of goods (other than dangerous goods1) by road is governed by the Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (the 'CMR Convention')2, which is implemented in the United Kingdom by statute3. There are also some bilateral agreements concerned with the reciprocal licensing of carriers4. The international carriage of passengers by road is not currently the subject of domestic legislation5, although provision is made at EU level in connection with the international carriage of passengers by coach and bus6.

International carriage by rail is governed by the Convention concerning International Carriage by Rail
