Company as Agent. Customer understands the company is not a “carrier” but that company will select and engage carriers on behalf of Customer. The Company acts as the “agent” of the Customer for the purpose of arranging transportation services, and of performing duties in connection with this service such as the filing of export and security documentation on behalf of the Customer and other dealings with Government Agencies.
Insurance: unless requested to do so in writing and confirmed by Customer in writing, Company is under no obligation to procure insurance on Customer’s behalf; in all cases, Customer shall pay all premiums and costs in connection with procuring requested insurance. The Company does not itself insure any transportation but uses reasonable care to contract with an insurance company to provide said insurance at an additional cost.
Company can not be held responsible and shall remain exempt from all liability for physical damage to a shipment, or loss caused by delay of delivery, when conditions beyond the carrier’s control are encountered during transit.
The risk of accidental loss or accidental deterioration of the delivered goods is, at the latest, transferred to the client upon hand-over of the goods to the forwarding agent, the carrier, or any other third party charged with the task of performing shipment (applicable from commencement of loading)
