Formative target
The course aims to analyze the statutory discipline of the means of transport in every possible branch.

The course will consider Italian regulation, uniform law and the European Community regulation.
Great consideration will be devoted to specific contracts, such as the sub transport, the multimodal transport and especially the logistic contract, because the latter is acquiring great importance in our commercial system-
