This Article examines four regimes that regulate the carriage of goods by sea with regard to seaworthiness: (1) Common law; (2) the Hague/Hague-Visby Rules; (3) the Hamburg Rules; and (4) the Rotterdam Rules. This article not only compares the text, but it also explains why the Rotterdam Rules approach is the most in line with current trade.
