We operate exclusively on the basis of the German Freight Forwarders’ Standard Terms and Conditions 2017 (Allgemeine Deutsche Spediteurbedingungen 2017, ADSp 2017). The ADSp 2017 contain limits to liability that are lower than the limits to liability prescribed under statutory law. Pursuant to Clause 23 of the ADSp 2017, the statutory liability for loss of or damage to cargo under § 431 of the German Commercial Code (Handelsgesetzbuch, HGB) of 8,33 Special Drawing Rights per kilogram (SDR/kg) is further limited to 1,25 Million Euro per claim and 2,5 Million Euro per event, or 2 SDR/kg, whichever amount is higher, and in case of multimodal transport including sea carriage to 2 SDR/kg if the place where the loss or damage occurred is unknown. You can obtain a copy of the ADSp 2017 at ADSp 2017. In addition, we will send you a copy of the ADSp 2017 free of charge upon your request.
