Dispute over the identification of a freight forwarding contract by sea

The identification of a freight forwarding contract by sea is controversial, and it tends to be recognized as a commission contract in practice. In the case of multi-level sub-delegation, the freight forwarder usually enjoys the contractual rights and undertakes the contractual obligations independently according to the principle of relativity of the contract. If the facts and legal relationship of the case are particularly complex, involving multiple related cases, the court can coordinate the relevant parties to intervene in the case for mediation, so as to avoid litigation fatigue.(Translated by Li XiaoFei)
