Freight owners must remember that transportation – forwarding companies are liable for loss, shortage and damage of goods which belong to the owner. However, a forwarder is liable to the clients for the things according to the same rules as a corresponding carrier is liable for. So liability of a carrier engaged in the international transportation is restricted by the International Conventions:

Nevertheless, a freight owner must clearly realize that such insurance covers a carrier first but does not provide the freight owner with its assistance. Moreover, carriers are free of loss, shortage and damage of goods provided that they could not foresee, prevent and eliminate those defects as they were independent on the carriers. Only competent freight insurance can provide protection from such losses. We are willing to assist you with a choice of the optimal insurance programme just for your freight and also with a calculation of insured value and drawing up an insurance policy.
