Whoever transports is liable...Forwarding companies are responsible for damage to goods in transit, exceeded terms of delivery or forwarding deficiencies. Carrier’s Liability Insurance is therefore a must in commercial haulage.
Hauliers know the risks their companies are exposed to daily during in-road, rail or marine transport. The Road Haulage Law (§ 7a GüKG) as well as the business conditions of forwarding companies stipulate Carrier’s Liability Insurance for a good reason. Compulsory insurance is required when goods are transported against payment and vehicles which have a permissible total weight of more than 3.5 tons including trailers are used.
Forwarding agencies and carriers have no longer just been responsible for the safe and damage-free transport from one place to another for some time now. In fact, the range of services (keyword: fulfilment) has been extended to areas that have nothing to do with contractual transport services (e.g. assembly and installation work (extended workbench), online-shop, call center, receivables management). The liability risks emerging from this fact must be taken seriously.
