Trading Conditions / Liability
We operate exclusively in accordance with the Allgemeine Deutsche Spediteurbedingungen 2017 - ADSp 2017 - (German Freight Forwarders' General Terms and Conditions 2017). Note: In clause 23 the ADSp 2017 deviates from the statutory liability limitation in section 431 German Commercial Code (HGB) by limiting the liability for multimodal transportation with the involvement of sea carriage and an unknown damage location to 2 SDR/kg and, for the rest, the customary liability limitation of 8,33 SDR/kg additionally to Euro 1,25 million per damage claim and EUR 2,5 million per damage event, but not less than 2 SDR/kg. Our services are based on the basis of current tariffs and rates and the transport companies involved respectively the transport bill of lading or the conditions of the shipping companies used. In case of conflict the ADSp are of prime importance. The calculation of low-water/bunker- and fuel surcharges are according to Am Zehnhoff-Söns tariff. Transport insurances are covered only at specified order and for an extra charge. The offers are subject to change until fixed degree and exclusive of VAT.
