Why is insuring your merchandise so important ?
Regardless of the mode of transport, sea, road, air, the carrier’s liability is limited and is usually calculated per kilo. National and international laws, just like the conventions governing your contracts of carriage, often deny claims for compensation filed by you as a customer.
Limited liability for carriers
- Air (Montreal Convention) 19 SDR per kg
- Maritime (Hauge Visby Rules) 2 SDR per kg or 666.67 SDR per package
- Road (CMR) 8.33 SDR per kg
- Rail (CIM) 17 SDR per kg
*SDR is used for Special Drawing Rights
