This work started as a modified casebook on the law on transportation and public utilities. The word “essentials” was adopted as part of the title of the last edition to reflect the fact that the work contained the fundamental rules and jurisprudence on the same law. It reflects the reality that the book cannot include all the important details of transportation and public utilities regulations that are expressed in numerous special laws and implementing regulations and circulars issued by administrative agencies.

Special emphasis was given to the New Civil Code provisions on Common Carriers and jurisprudence that relates thereto. Hence, Part I of this work consists of general concepts and basic rules that apply to all types of transportation. Unless otherwise indicated, these concepts and rules apply to transportation by land,= water, and air. The New Civil Code provisions on Common Carriers take center-stage so to speak. Special rules that apply to transportation by air and maritime transportation are separately discussed in Parts II and III, respectively. The formalities of the contract of carriage, including the Code of Commerce  provisions on documents of title, are also discussed in Chapter 5. Rules on formalities that apply specifically to transportation by air are discussed in Part II. The last chapter of the first part, Chapter 6, discusses matters relating to causes of action and damages that may be recovered in the cases files against common carriers.

Those who are familiar with the previous edition will notice the changes in the structure of presentation of the topics. All the topics that are part of the previous edition are still part of the present edition, although the topics are re-arranged to provide a better framework and flow of discussion. The duty to exercise extraordinary diligence that was previously discussed in a separate chapter is now integrated in Chapter 2 that is devoted entirely to the obligations of the carrier. Two separate chapters are presented, Chapter 3 on obligations of the shippers and passengers, and Chapter 4 on defenses of the common carriers in court actions. Three separate chapters on air transportation are now discussed ahead of maritime law (Chapters 7, 8, and 9) in view of the prominent role of air transportation even to ordinary individuals. These chapters include a new separate chapter containing a more comprehensive discussion of the rules and jurisprudence on the Warsaw Convention.

All chapters contain additional discussions, cases and/or citations. The additional  materials include a discussion of the Warsaw Convention mentioned earlier, a new section on transportation by train in Chapter 2 and a more extensive discussion of Public Service Regulations in Chapters 21 and 22.

The authors hope that the present work will be a better guide for students of transportation and public utilities law.
