Transport has been the field of a long process of world-wide uniform law and uniform commercial terms spread all over the world. We could say that Transport Law is going to be the first in history, and, may be, the main field to test a globalized law. There is a large corpus of uniform law (which influenced also domestic legislation), but there is a lack of uniformity in their interpretation, which constitutes a problem in international trade. On the other hand, as it will be shown, the overlap of international conventions has driven towards a progressive disuniformity in sectors once characterized by a strong degree of uniformity. The effort of codification of the law of the sea dates from the second part of 20th century: to have an organic legislation, we had to wait till the UNCLOS III, the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, signed in Montego Bay on the 10th December 1982, which regulated together, inter alia, the freedom of navigation, the coastal State claims, as well as environmental matters.
