In 2005, STJ applied the same understanding in a lawsuit that involved the State Electricity Company (CEEE) of Rio Grande do Sul and the AES Uruguaiana.

publicacoes2With the advent of Law no. 11,442, of January 5th, 2007, which provides for the load transport on behalf of third parties, the road carrier companies are now an important legal instrument against excess commonly observed in the contractual relationship between these and the self-employed Load Carriers.
