Tasks that do not fall within the scope of DHAB 2016 or DSAF – except clause 10 of DSAF, which shall not be deemed to be agreed between the parties – are performed under the General Conditions of the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders (NSAB 2000).
The Conditions limit our liability for any loss, deterioration or damage in respect of goods to 8.33 SDR per kilogram, and for any delay to an amount equivalent to the payment agreed under the contract or 50,000 SDR for each contract, whichever is the lower.
For the storage of goods, the total liability of the freight forwarder for damage occurring on one and the same occasion shall be limited to 500,000 SDR (§27).
It should be noted in particular that any claims against the freight forwarder become time-barred after one year (§30) and that the lien (§14) applies to both present and previous claims. Any claims for freight etc. must be paid irrespective of the delivery terms of the commercial contract (§10).
