Every means of transport has its own national and international
set of laws and regulations.
The CMR Convention governs international road transports.
The Maritime Law applies to transport by sea and the Warsaw and Montreal Conventions govern air transport.
Blue Water ensures that our subcontractors and partners have liability insurance which covers as per these laws and regulations. Additionally, we also have liability insurance to cover any mistakes and negligence, we may be responsible for.
Our responsibility as freight forwarding agent is covered by various, national rules and customs. Liability concerning all contracts made in Scandinavia is described in NSAB2000, General conditions of the Nordic association of Freight Forwarders.
To ensure optimal cover in case of loss or damage, we recommend
taking out separate cargo insurance. Such insurance can be taken
out on limited conditions - Institute Cargo Clause "C" or most
commonly on extended conditions - all risk/clause "A".
We offer to take out insurance on behalf of our clients. Our recommended rates cover shipping to/from Scandinavia for all common, new, packaged goods.
