ABSTRACT
"Carriers Liability" is one of the most important issues of the shipping law. In principle, the carrier is responsible for loss or damage of cargo carried by sea, between date of delivery and re delivery, when cargo is in his possession. In Turkish Law System, there are some exceptions of this general provision, brought by the article 1061 of TTK (Turkish Commercial Code) which is mainly based on The Hague Rules. These exceptions coming from practice for centuries in maritime law; are considered as immunities of carrier's liabilities, applicable in certain conditions or circumstances, and these exceptions differentiate the carriers by sea from the carriers by land or air. These exceptions regarding carrier's liability, similar to the other principles of the maritime law, are results of the specific features of marine and maritime world and they came into force in practice, throughout the historical developments of maritime law
