Limitation of liability
Goods are not insured during transport, unless you as clients have arranged otherwise. We recommend that, based on the value of the goods you assess with your insurer whether or not it is desirable to take out goods in transit insurance.
Transport within the Netherlands is covered by the statutory AVC Conditions. This means, among other things, that you can hold the carrier liable for a maximum of €3.40 gross compensation per kilo lost. For cross-border transport, the CMR Convention applies. Under the Convention any liability is a maximum of approximately SDR 8.33 gross compensation per kilo lost, in which the invoice amount is the guiding factor. The current SDR rate (Swiss Gold Franc) can be found (calculated) on the website: www.xe.com/ict.
We shall reject all liability once the receiver signed for proper receipt of the goods. Jewellery, securities, coupons, specimen, documents, radioactive substances, antiques, collectors’ items with a collector’s value, computer software, fragile glassware, crystal, porcelain or ceramics always fall outside our liability in accordance with both sets of conditions referred to above. Damage or Loss
In the event of damage or loss, we will proceed in accordance with the applicable conditions. Our acceptance of liability may also serve as the starting point for the additional indemnification by your insurer. Any claims shall lapse after 12 months from the date of shipment.
