Fuel Adjustment Factor
Diesel and bunker constitute a large proportion of our production costs. A significant increase in oil and fuel prices, in the world market, led to the introduction of an additional fuel surcharge from September 1st 2004. A continued volatile oil market means that this surcharge is still applied.
The oil surcharge is adjusted on a monthly basis to reflect current fuel prices.
NSAB2015 - General conditions of the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders.
These General Conditions of the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders set forth the freight forwarder's and the customer's rights and obligations towards each other, including the freight forwarder's liability under various applicable transport law conventions valid from time to time, such as CIM, CMR, the Hague-Visby Rules and the Montreal Convention, or any ammendments, annexes or protocols of any such transport law convention.
The CMR Convention governs the carriage of goods by road. Every road trip that starts or finishes in countries which have ratified this convention, is subject to the CMR - Convention.
Usually, contracts are confirmed by the issue of a CMR consignment note, which must show the name and address of the consignee, consignor and carrier; a description of the goods; weight and number of packages etc.It is important to note that, under the CMR, the exporter is legally responsible for the accuracy of the information in the CMR note. Therefore, the exporter should always make out, or supervise the making out of the note.
The carrier is liable for loss, damage, or delay of the goods between the time he takes charge of shipment and until the time shipment are delivered. Generally, the carrier is also liable for the acts of his principal, agents and sub-contractors. However, there are a number of expected perils, such as neglect, or wrong instructions of the claimant, inherent vice of the goods etc. Compensation is calculated in relation to the value of the goods at the time and place at which they were accepted for carriage. Most European countries limit compensation to a specific amount of Special Drawing Rights (SDR) per kg of gross weight of the lost, or damaged goods.
Following countries have ratified the CMR Convention: Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, United Kingdom, Greece, Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Kazakhstan, Croatia, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Morocco, Moldova, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Tajikistan, Serbia, Czech Republic, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Turkey, Germany, Hungary, Uzbekistan and Austria
It is important to note that the CMR Convention is an international law and therefore invariable; meaning that all agreements between a client and a carrier which differ from the CMR Convention are null and void.
The Montreal Convention
SMGS Rules – Railway
Rail transportation within the CIS countries and Baltic States takes place within the framework of the Organization for Cooperation Railway Lines (OSJD), an international intergovernmental organization which was created in 1956. The members consist of all countries in Central Easter Europe, CIS, North Korea, China, Mongolia and Cuba.
The Rules according to which railway transport is carried out is called SMGS rules.
Unlike the CMR-convention, Warsaw Rules and Hague-Visby these rules are only applicable for the countries who are members of the organization.
The rules set out a large number of liability exemptions and administrative hurdles which makes it almost impossible to get any compensation in case of loss, damage or delay. Furthermore the railways only have to answer the claim within 180 days – which means delays in payment.
