The attorney Aliaksandr Danilevich specializes in resolving disputes related to transportation and expedition, especially international. Disputes are connected usually with the carrier’s liability for delay in the delivery of cargo, liability for damage or loss of cargo upon delivery, payment of fines for storage and demurrage. Legal assistance is provided to resolve disputes for all types of transportation. Today the largest practice of providing assistance is with regard to disputes, arising from road and rail transportation.

When resolving disputes in connection with transportation and expedition, special attention should be paid to observing the shortened limitation periods for claims from international transportation, established by the national legislation of Belarus and international transport agreements. At the same time, compliance with the mandatory preliminary claim (letter before action) procedure, which can be provided for in the international convention, is also of great importance.

It should be borne in mind that, based on the subject of regulation of some international transport conventions, Belarusian citizens and companies are sometimes subject to those international agreements to which Belarus is not a party.
