Cargo owners should remember that companies engaged in transport and forwarding activities are responsible for the loss, shortage, damage (damage) of the cargo belonging to the client. However, the freight forwarder is liable to customers in the same way as the respective carrier is liable to him. So, when transporting in international traffic, the carrier’s liability is limited by international conventions:
- 2 SDR units for sea freight;
- 17 SDR Air Freight;
- 8.33 SDR units for road transport;
- 17 SDR units for rail transportation.
But the Cargo Owner must be clearly aware that such insurance primarily protects the carrier and is not intended to help the cargo owner. Moreover, carriers are exempt from liability if the loss, shortage, damage to the cargo occurred as a result of circumstances that he could not foresee, the prevention and elimination of which did not depend on him. You can only protect yourself from such losses through competent cargo insurance. We are ready to assist you and select the optimal insurance program for your cargo, as well as calculate the cost and issue an insurance policy.
