D6.4 - Legal definition of the ‘trustee’ concept and on the legal forms
Deliverable 6.4 summarises the first results and elaborates on the legal qualification of the NexTrust trustee entity.
Early in NexTrust, a model agreement between collaborating shippers and the trustee had been developed. However, the position of the trustee required further definition.
From the legal perspective, more research has now been done in respect of the functions of the trustee and the legal characterisation of the relationships between the trustee and the other parties involved.
