    TERMS & CONDITIONS, LIMITATIONS
    OF LIABILITY

     

    Effective from 15 AUG 2018

    1. In tendering this shipment, the shipper agrees to these Conditions of Contract of Carriage, which no agent or employee of the parties may alter, and that this shipping document is non-negotiable and has been prepared by the shipper. The shipper certifies and represents to Forwarder that the information inserted on the face of this shipping document is complete and accurate. It is agreed among the parties involved that the conditions of the contract of carriage for this shipment are governed by Forwarder’s tariffs, available for inspection at Forwarder’s offices, and which are hereby incorporated into this contract, and a copy of which will be supplied upon request. NOTE: “Shipper” on this contract means the party from whom the shipment is received, the party who requested the shipment be transported by Forwarder, and the party having an interest in the shipment, and any party who acts as an agent for any of the above. Except to the extent of any written contract between shipper and Forwarder, this shipping document supersedes and negates any claimed, alleged or asserted oral or written contract, promise, representation or understanding between the parties with respect to this shipment.
    2. In the event that shipment is tendered to Forwarder on a straight bill of lading or any other shipping document, Forwarder’s rules and regulations will supersede any rules and regulations contained on the shipping document on which the freight was tendered.
    3. Shipper warrants that each package in this shipment is properly and completely described on this shipping document, is properly marked and addressed, is packaged adequately to protect the enclosed goods to ensure safe transportation with ordinary care in handling, and except as noted, is in good order and condition. For articles shipped in unenclosed containers, Forwarder shall not be liable for damage/loss unless mishandling and/or loss is evident and is so noted on the delivery receipt at the time of delivery. NOTE: A shipment in which delivery is made in exchange for a clear delivery receipt shall be prima facie evidence of having received ordinary care in handling.
    4. At the time of delivery, the consignee must note on the delivery receipt any exceptions to the shipping containers that would indicate a discrepancy (shortage in the ship­ment or damage to the containers). The consignee may not inspect the contents of the shipping containers until the consignee signs for the shipment on the delivery receipt. NOTE: Such notations as “subject to inspection” and “subject to recount” are not exceptions. NOTE: A shipment in which delivery is made in exchange for a clear delivery receipt shall be prima facie evidence of having received ordinary care in handling. NOTE: Under no circumstances shall Forwarder be liable for loss and/ or damage to external shipping containers of any kind.
    5. Forwarder SHALL NOT BE LIABLE IN ANY EVENT FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF PROFITS, INCOME, INTEREST, UTILITY OR LOSS OF MARKET, WHETHER OR NOT Forwarder HAD KNOWLEDGE THAT SUCH DAMAGES MIGHT BE INCURRED.
    6. Due to the inherent nature of the transportation business, Forwarder does not guarantee to pick up, transportation or delivery by a stipulated date or a stipulated time, nor shall Forwarder be liable for the consequences of failure to do so.
    7. Overcharge claims must be received in writing by Forwarder within one year after the date of acceptance of the shipment by Forwarder. Written notification on all other claims (except concealed loss/damage claims) must be received in writing by Forwarder within 30 days after Forwarder accepted the shipment. Notification of concealed loss/damage claims (i.e., claims for loss or damage discovered by the consignee after delivery and after a clear receipt has been given) must be received in writing by Forwarder within 12 days after delivery, or if perishables, verbally within 48 hours. For damage claims and concealed loss claims, Forwarder must be allowed the privilege to make the inspection of the shipment and the container(s) and packaging material(s) at the place of delivery. Claims must be perfected within 180 days after delivery or date delivery was intended. No claims will be entertained until all transportation charges have been paid. Claims may not be deducted from transportation charges and no claims may be deducted from any charges owed Forwarder. Legal action to enforce a claim must be brought within one year after the claim has been denied in writing by Forwarder, in whole or in part.
    8. Forwarder’s liability, in the absence of a higher declared value for carriage, is limited to a maximum of £50.00 per shipment or £0.50 per pound, per piece, of cargo lost, damaged, misdelivered or otherwise adversely affected, whichever amount is greater, but in no event shall amount exceed the actual invoice value of the goods. This limitation is subject to provisions as published in Forwarder’s governing tariffs in effect at the time of this shipment. Declared values for carriage in excess of £0.50 per pound, per piece, shall be subject to an excess valuation charge.
    9. Unless each piece of the shipment has a declared value stated and is specifically identified on the Forwarder’s shipping document at the time of the shipment and is so identified on the delivery receipt as being lost, damaged, destroyed, or otherwise affected at time of delivery, Forwarder shall be liable subject to tariff provisions in effect at the time of the shipment for the “average declared value” of the shipment. The “average declared value” of the shipment shall be determined by first dividing the total declared value of the shipment by the total weight of the shipment. This figure, multiplied by the packaged weight of the piece(s) adversely affected, shall then establish the amount of Forwarder’s liability. The total declared value amount must be inserted in the DECLARED VALUE box on the face of this shipping document. Forwarder’s liability shall in no event exceed the actual invoice value of the goods adversely affected.
    10. In the event of the failure or inability of the consignee to take delivery of the shipment, Forwarder will notify Shipper in writing at the address shown on the shipping document and request disposition instructions. If the shipper fails to provide disposition instructions within 30 days after the date of Forwarder’s notice, Forwarder will return shipment to the shipper at the shipper’s expense. If the shipper fails to accept delivery of a shipment thus returned, Forwarder may, upon 30 days written notice to the shipper, dispose of the shipment at the public or private sale and pay itself out of the proceeds to satisfy the transportation charges owing on the shipment. Any sums collected by Forwarder in excess of such transportation charges will be paid to the shipper. No sale or disposal pursuant to this rule will discharge any liability or lien to any greater extent than the proceeds thereof. The shipper and the consignee shall remain liable, jointly and severally, for any deficiency.

    11. Forwarder shall not be liable for loss, damage, delay or monetary loss of any type caused by: Acts of God; public authorities acting with actual or apparent authority; strikes; labour disputes; weather; mechanical failures; aircraft failures; civil commotions; acts or omissions of customs or quarantine officials; the nature of the freight or any defects thereof; public enemies; hazards incident to a state of war; acts of terrorism; and by acts, defaults or omissions of the shipper or consignee for failure to observe the terms and conditions of the contract of carriage contained in this shipping document, including but not limited to improper packaging, marking, incomplete/ inaccurate shipping instructions and the rules relating to freight not acceptable for transportation of freight acceptable only under certain conditions outlined below.

Forwarder shall not be liable for any loss, damage, delay, liabilities or penalties resulting from the transportation of any of the foregoing articles, however, described or misdescribed in this shipping document, and no employee or agent of Forwarder has any authority to accept for transportation such articles or to waive the limitations herein contained.

    13. Forwarder’s liability for aggregate losses at any one time at any one place is limited to £350.000 (CMR Western Europe), £350.000 CMR Eastern Europe. For shipments having declared values over £350.000 (event limit).

    Excess: £250 other than £50 in respect of Full Value Liability (max. Load Limit £12.500), £1.000 in respect of Theft of Thief Attractive items. Forwarder must be given advance notice prior to pick up.

    14. Rates and charges for this shipment will be: a. based on actual or dimensional weight, whichever is greater.
    b. other ways we can offer domestic transportation services by related transportation businesses and payment will be calculated in the individual offer.

    15. If this is an International shipment, a. all rules relating to liability as established by the Warsaw Convention shall apply,

    b. except as otherwise provided in Forwarder’s tariffs or conditions of carriage, in carriage to which the Warsaw Convention does not apply, Forwarder’s liability shall not exceed U.K. £20.00 per kilogram or the equivalent of goods lost, damaged or delayed, unless a higher value is declared by the shipper and a supplementary charge paid,

    c. Forwarder accepts this shipping document as a shipper’s letter of instructions with authorization to prepare and sign on shipper’s behalf an international shipping document, and

    d. Forwarder reserves the option to act as the agent of the carrier, instead of as a forwarder, in which event the direct carrier’s tariffs shall apply to this shipment and

    e. the shipper may select by inserting on the face of this shipping document cargo coverage based on insurance and/or declared value for carriage.

     

    16. Unless inserted otherwise on the face of this shipping document, the C.O.D. amount of the shipment shall be deemed to be the declared value for carriage amount. This declared value for carriage amount in excess of £0.50 per pound, per piece, shall be subject to an excess valuation charge.

    17. Collect on Delivery (C.O.D.) service is provided under the following conditions: a. shipper must identify the shipment as a C.O.D. shipment by entering the amount to be collected in the “Shipper’s C.O.D. Box” on the front of this shipping document,
