entity if existing, in the country where the shipment is presented for carriage, who may be contacted c/o 5 Avenue Ariane, 1200

company will also be the (first) carrier of the goods for the purposes of the Conventions referred to in paragraph C.

supplemented by any protocol or supplementary convention or (iii) the Montreal Convention 1999, whichever is applicable.)
Notwithstanding any clause to the contrary, international carriage by road may be subject to the provisions of the Convention on the
Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road signed at Geneva on 19th May 1956 (“the CMR Convention”).
