If FAC – Forwarders Agency Commission is applicable, it will be calculated on the OF - Ocean Freight only and will be paid after the full payment has been received.

“Freight Prepaid” on the Bill of Lading and other freight documents is not a receipt for paid freight costs but serves only as to where freight is payable.

Emergency charges as for example War Risk, Warlike Conditions, Congestion and Others Hindrances, can be levied without notice. The carrier will reserve the right to impose any extra charge as War Risk, Warlike Conditions, Congestion, Other Hindrances and/or any other charge caused by reasons beyond our control.

All quotations, offers for space, booking confirmations and freight commissions will be covered by the terms of Bill of Lading of the shipping company.

All increases of already existing extra fees and charges and, all additional new extra fees in ports, duties or other additional charges imposed by authorities and/or other third parties will be charged to the shipper.

If delivery of cargo is not taken by receiver or export transport halted at any stage and for any reason, the Carrier has the right to offload cargo from any equipment. The offloaded cargo will be stored. The costs for offloading and storage will be on the cargo owner’s account.

The Carrier has lien in the cargo until such date as when full payment for all costs incurred have been paid. The Carrier is free to dispose off the cargo/sell at their discretion, if costs for offload and storage exceed the cargo value.

For LCL, Break Bulk Cargo and cargo on flats/open tops, the carrier has the liberty to measure cargo at any point and impose extra Freight and Charges. The same applies for incorrect statements if found necessary.

Cargo on flats or on/in any other container/equipment may not be welded or secured in such a way that offloading may damage the container/equipment or may create any level of risk at the terminals.

All cargo has to be well secured in/on the containers/flats. The customer is responsible to ensure that the securing and lashing can withstand heavy weather and any means of transport that is involved in the routing of cargo.

Dangerous Cargo (IMO) is only accepted after final approval from local authorities and the Master of the vessel.

If Dangerous Cargo is received without the Carrier knowing their dangerous character, the Carrier may discharge them, render them innocuous or destroy them without any duty to pay compensation. The same applies even if the Carrier knows the dangerous character of the goods if danger later arises to any person or property rendering it indefensible to retain the goods on board.
