FAQ

  • A carriers' liability insurance provides insurance protection in the event that you are liable for a damage that has occurred on the basis of a transport contract concluded with a client (forwarder, freight or storage contract) in accordance with statutory provisions (e.g. HGB, CMR, Montreal Convention, Warsaw Convention, national statutory provisions of other countries, etc.).

  • Every freight forwarder, carrier or warehousing company needs a carriers' liability insurance, because without valid and adequate insurance protection they would, in practice, not receive any transportation orders. If you take out a carriers' liability insurance, you can also refer on the General German Freight Forwarding Terms and Conditions (ADSp) and the limits of liability as contained therein. These limits of liablity can secure a company's survival, this is particularly true for warehouse keepers, as they could otherwise be faced with unlimited liability in the case of loss. However, in accordance with Article 7 a of the German Road Haulage Act (GüKG) there is a legal obligation to insure for the carrier who is engaged in the commercial road haulage sector and who transports goods within Germany.
