A general revision of the COTIF Convention and the CIM Rules within them was signed in 1999. This major modification of CIM contains important adjustments to the rules governing successive carriage in respect of the international carriage of goods by rail. They will represent the most developed form of this type of scheme, in that they will govern both external and internal relationships as well as taking performing sub-carriers into account. They will both contrast with the regimes applied in air and road and yet share some features in common with each of them. The new rules represent a further development in the area, if not wholly fresh thinking. In this article an analysis of them is made mainly in the light of the current regime and the CMR Convention on international carriage of goods by road. This reveals whether they are a welcome development or whether an opportunity for a more radical approach has been missed.
