CMS assists TNT Nederland

02/12/2009

On 17 November 2009 the French Cour de Cassation rejected the complaint against TNT Nederland. Since 2001 the case has focused on the question whether a delayed delivery of medicines constitutes intent or wilful recklessness on the part of TNT Nederland. This is not the case. TNT is therefore able to rely on the liability limit of the CMR (Convention Relative au Contrat de Transport International de Marchandises par Route). TNT will pay 233 SDRs instead of the € 200,000 as claimed.

TNT Nederland was assisted by Aziz al Mansouri and Leonard Böhmer. The French CMS firm CMS Bureau Francis Lefebvre acted on behalf of TNT.
