German Freight Forwarders' Standard Terms and Conditions

We operate exclusively in accordance with the Allgemeine Deutsche Spediteurbedingungen 2017 - ADSp 2017 - (German Freight Forwarders' General Terms and Conditions 2017) and - if they do not apply for performing logistics services - with the Logistic-AGB (General Terms and Conditions of Logistics-Services Providers), as of 2019.

Note: In clause 23 the ADSp 2017 deviates from the statutory liability limitation in section 431 German Commercial Code (HGB) by limiting the liability for multimodal transportation with the involvement of sea carriage and an unknown damage location to 2 SDR/kg and, for the rest, the customary liability limitation of 8,33 SDR/kg additionally to Euro 1,25 million per damage claim and EUR 2,5 million per damage event, but not less than 2 SDR/kg.

Special transports/Movement by crane
Inasmuch as we work as haulage contactor, also as heavy loads haulage contractor, then we do so exclusively on the basis of the General German Haulier Terms and Conditions (ADSp). The “General Terms and Conditions of the German Federal Working Group Heavy Haulage and Crane Work (AGB-BSK)” apply if we ourselves perform crane work or carry out heavy and bulky transports and rough assemblies as a component of the crane work or transport service. For other assemblies that are not rough assemblies in the meaning of the AGB- BSK, we work on the basis of the BSK Terms and Conditions of Assembly (BSK- Assembly). The respective most recently published version of AGB- BSK and BSK- Assembly applies.
