Additional cargo insurance in special cases

Cargo Insurance

Carrier’s liability for goods entrusted to him is limited. It is governed by international conventions. According to Warsaw Convention of 1929, the maximum airline liability for lost or damaged goods is SDR 16.67 per kilogram of gross load. According to the Hague-Visby Rules of 1968, the maximum liability of sea lines for damaged or lost goods is SDR 2 per cargo gross kilogram or SDR 666.67 per container.

In road transport, carrier’s liability is governed by the Geneva Convention of 1956 that provides the maximum liability of the carrier to SDR 8.33* for the gross kilogram of cargo.
