All business transactions are subject to the German Freight Forwarders’ Standard Terms and Conditions 2017 - ADSp 2017.
Note: The maximum liability for damage to goods (§ 431 of the German Commercial Code) defined in section 23 of the ADSp 2017 diverges from the law in that it limits the liability for multimodal transport, including carriage by sea and cases in which the place where the damage occurred is unknown, to 2 SDR/kg and otherwise limits the standard liability of 8.33 SDR/kg to 1.25 million euros per instance of damage and 2.5 million euros per damage event, but no more than 2 SDR/kg.
In any case, contractual penalties are not the object of the ADSp.
Please contact us if you would like to view the ADSp in full. We would be glad to send it to you.
