THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT AIR & OCEAN CARRIERS LIABILITIES
“But isn’t the carrier responsible for any losses while they’re in possession of my cargo?”
This common misconception can lead to huge financial losses for shippers. The fact is that the liability of most carriers, freight forwarder & NVOCC, is severely limited by law and/or tariff restrictions. Generally, an ocean carrier is only responsible for up to $500 per package. An international air carrier has minimal per pound (or kilo) limit under whichever convention is adopted by the destination country. This is approximately $10.50 per pound (or $23.50 per kilo) under the Montreal Protocol 4, and only $9.07 per pound (or $20 per kilo) under the Warsaw Convention. Domestic air carriers are only liable for $.50 per pound for any shipment.
Having the right insurance will protect our clients from devastating losses.
VS IMPORT SERVICES, INC. LIMIT LIABILITY FOR ALL LOSS, DAMAGE, OR “MISS-SHIPMENT” SHALL NOT EXCEED $0.50 PER POUND, LIMITED TO A MAXIMUM OF $500.00 FOR ANY PACKAGE.
