We work exclusively on the basis of the German Forwarders (ADSp 2017), as amended, jurisdiction is Munich.
For cross-border transportation we are liable for self-admission by our own vehicles within the CMR, with shipments within Germany by the German legal provisions (HGB).
Excerpt from the current ADSp high quality shipments:
“3.3 In case of valuable or Theft-Sensitive Goods, the Principal must inform the Freight Forwarder in text form regarding the type and value of the goods and the current risks involved to enable the Freight Forwarder to assess the acceptance of the order or take appropriate measures for the safe and damage-free completion of said order. In case of acceptance of the order, the Freight Forwarder is obliged to undertake appropriate safety measures for protecting the goods.”
We always recommend in this case to conclude a value-dependent transport insurance, the recipient ensures an insurance cover for the entire transportation process from loading operation by the customer to the performance of the signature.
