Liability and insurance

Today's modern transport is a complex chain where there will always be a risk of loss, damage and delay in spite of an ever-improved quality.


Everyone dealing with haulage and transport are bound to have an insurance that covers the requirements for compensation that is stipulated in each transport/Convention.

Responsibility is in accordance with the Act of Vegfraktavtaler. With haulage commission the responsibility is governed by NSAB 2015 (Nordic Haulage General Provisions, except Section 27C, storage).

Our haulage-liability insurance is in AIG.

Goods insurance
As the carrier our responsibility is strong, but limited. This means that our liability provisions do not always cover the goods full value. This means that the goods owner should draw their own goods insurance.

The advantage of drawing goods insurance includes:

  • Goods insurance includes the loss of expected profits by 10%

  • You as a customer can quickly receive damage settlement regardless of liability issues

  • You as a customer are more satisfied

In cooperation with If Malmø, Schenker can provide such goods insurance with competitive terms.
