Abstract. The efficiency of the transportation mainly depends on the legal regulation in this area. The current paper has considered the features of the carrier’s liability when violating the obligations of the railway transportation of goods. Currently, the problems of applying the current legislation remain unresolved. It concerns both general provisions on the transportation of goods and special legislation, especially in the field of the rights and obligations of the carrier and his liability. The legislation regulating the railway transportation of goods has been formed by nowadays. Despite this, the norms of transport legislation often contradict the norms of general civil legislation, which creates problems in resolving disputes. Therefore, the topic of the carrier's liability is of special importance, since under the contract for the railway transportation of goods, the main liability is on a carrier, namely the railways.
Keywords: railway transportation of goods; contract for the transportation of goods; obligations for the transportation of goods.
