On 03.04.2017 Dr. Tristan Wegner gave a lecture at the Committee for Legal and Insurance Issues of the Bundesverband Güterkraftverkehr Logistik und Entsorgung (BGL) e.V. in Frankfurt on the topic “Union Versand und das gemeinsamen Versandverfahren – Vergleich mit dem TIR-Verfahren und Versicherungsfragen”.
The presentation showed the Committee differences and similarities between the Union transit procedure (T1 and T2) and the international TIR procedure. In particular, liability risks for principal and aspects of insurance have also been addressed. The various insurance policies were also opened with regard to the scope of liability.
The extent to which the TIR transit procedure competes with the European transit procedures and whether one procedure can replace the other was also discussed.
