The German Freight Forwarders’ Standard Terms and Conditions 2017 (Allgemeine Deutsche Spediteurbedingungen 2017 – ADSp 2017) are recommended for use as of 1 January 2017 by the Federal Association of German Industry (BDI), the Federal Association of German Wholesale, Foreign Trade and Services (BGA), the Federal Association of Road Haulage, Logistics and Disposal (BGL), the Federal Association of Furniture Forwarders and Logistics (AMÖ), the Federal Association of Transport and Logistics in Industry and Trade (BWVL), the Association of the German Chambers of Industry and Commerce (DIHK), the Federal Association of German Freight Forwarders and Logistics Operators (DSLV) and the German Retail Federation (HDE).
The German Freight Forwarders’ Standard Terms and Conditions 2016 (Allgemeine Deutsche Spediteurbedingungen 2016 - ADSp 2016) are recommended for use by the German Association for Freight Forwarding and Logistics (Deutscher Speditions- und Logistikverband e. V. – DSLV), as of 1 January 2016.

These logistics terms and conditions apply to all (supplementary) logistics services not covered by a transportation contract in accordance with section 2.1 of the General German Freight Forwarding Terms and Conditions (ADSp) – if applicable – or a freight, a forwarding or a warehousing contract but that are provided by a service provider in connection with such a transportation contract.

Within the CTU Code, comprehensive information and references on all aspects of loading and securing of cargo in containers and other intermodal transport are provided, taking account of the requirements of all sea and land transport modes. The CTU Code applies to transport operations throughout the entire intermodal transport chain and provides guidance not only to those responsible for packing and securing cargo, but also to those who receive and unpack such units. It also addresses issues such as training and the packing of dangerous goods.
Although the incoterms in international business transactions frequently sound similar, as with the clauses used in domestic contracts, they usually have different meanings. That is why it is necessary to understand what terms you are agreeing to before you conclude the contract.
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 and, for the rest, the customary liability limitation of 8,33 SDR/kg additionally to Euro 1,25 million per damage claim and EUR 2,5 million per damage event, but not less than 2 SDR/kg.
