Terms & Conditions

General Terms and Conditions of Business

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 March 2006. 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 additionally to Euro 1,25 million per damage claim and Euro 2,5 million per damage event, but not less than 2 SDR/kg. Note: The Freight Forwarder arranges the insurance of the goods, when the Principal declares a value of the goods.

For business transactions that only involve crane and installation work or heavy transports the "General Terms and Conditions for Heavy Transport and Crane Work" (BSK) apply.

For business transactions that involve the storage of files and archiving services, our "Terms and Conditions for File Services" (T&C Files) apply exclusively. For transport of removal goods, the §§ 451 to 541h HGB (German Commercial Code) apply. For business transactions that only involve the storage of household goods, the General Terms and Conditions of Storage of the German Furniture Transport (ALB) apply exclusively.
