Trasporti Castelleti Spedizioni Internazionali SpA v Hugo Trumpy SpA: ECJ 30 Jun 1999

The conduct of parties with usage consistent with rules under the convention governing consent to jurisdiction, and where they ought to know of such rules, made such rules part of their contract. Such usage is determined by the trade practice rather than national or international law. A national court must look to such trade usage to see whether such a clause is imported.
