To consider a claim for damages, both the contents of the shipment and the original packaging must be available to us for inspection.

Unless otherwise specified in any applicable legal provision, your right to file claims for damages will expire if no action is brought before a court within one year from the receipt of the shipment, from the scheduled delivery date of the shipment, or from the completion of the transportation.

Our current rate list is available upon request at any of our offices in the country where the shipment is invoiced.

19.4. We charge based on the actual weight of the shipment or its volumetric weight, whichever is greater; volumetric weight is calculated according to the volumetric conversion equation listed in our tariff schedule. We may verify the weight, volume, and/or number of items in Your Shipment, and if we find a discrepancy between the declared weight and/or volume and/or number of items, you agree that the values determined by us will be used for our calculations.
