Commercial Principles & General Business Terms and Conditions

We operate exclusively in accordance with the Allgemeinen Deutschen Spediteurbedingungen – ADSp – (German Freight Forwarders‘ General Terms and Conditions) in their 2003 version, preamble excluded. We draw your attention to paragraph 23 of ADSp – limited liability – which is partially lower than legal liability. The parties agree subsidiary, that (1) clause 27 ADSp does neither extend the liability nor the responsibility of the forwarder for agents, servants, employees or crewmembers beyond legal regulations as Art. 507 HGB, Art. 25 MÜ, Art. 36 CIM, Art. 20, 21 CMNI for the benefit of the principal, (2) the freight forwarder as a sea carrier is only liable for fault of his own part in case of risks provided in Art. 512 paragraph 2 no.1 HGB such as default in navigation of the ship or fire on board and (3) the freight forwarder as a carrier defined in CMNI is relieved of liability in compliance with the requirements provided in Art. 25 paragraph 2 CMNI such as default in navigation of the ship, fire on board or defects of vessel.
