Although the purpose of forming civil responsibility regulations is the full compensation of damages, it has been predicted a certain ceiling in international conventions which observe transportation operator’s responsibility. It means that in case of any damage such as losing or wasting goods, any damage to goods or delay in its delivery, the responsibility of the carrier wouldn’t be exceed of a certain ceiling, except in some cases which have been predicted in the rules. This arbitrary rule is called liability limitation. This article tries to investigate the amount of rail transportation operator’s liability in COTIF convention, sea transportation operator’s liability in Brussels and Hamburg conventions, air transportation operator’s liability in Warsaw, Hague, Guatemala, Montreal Conventions and road transportation operator’s liability in CMR conventions.
