  • Recent Developments in Package Limitation to Cargo Losses during Air Transportation

    In a recent court judgment, the Taipei District Court (“TPDC”) affirmed, as upheld by the Taiwan High Court (“THC”) in April 2010, the validity of a package limitation clause in a contract of carriage. The TPDC held that not all clauses for the exclusion or limitation of liability, as contained in a document relating to a contract of carriage, would be void, and that whether such exclusion or limitation would be unconscionable depends on the underlying facts and circumstances leading to the conclusion of the contract in question. The TPDC nevertheless limited the application of the package limitation clause to losses occurred during air transportation.
