Therefore we operate exclusively in accordance with the latest version of the ADSp - (German Forwarder´s Terms and Conditions of Trading). These limit in § 23 ADSp the legal liability for damage to goods in the case of damage to goods whilst in the care of a forwarder to EUR 5/kg, in accordance with § 431 of the German Commercial Code (HGB), in the case of multimodal transports, including sea transports to 2 SDR (special drawing right)/kg plus, in addition, per damage or event to EUR 1 Millions or EUR 2 Millions respectively, or 2 SDR/kg, whichever is greater. Paragraph 27 ADSp does not constitute an agreement for alternative maximum liability sums concerning § 25 of the Montreal Agreement.
