Your responsibility as a customer

In our business, we see all kinds of shipments. Some are robust and can withstand a lot. While other shipment are fragile or perishable and risking to be damaged. It is therefore necessary that the shipment are delivered for carriage is fitted with a commercially packaging to protect the shipment from normal stresses in the transportation-chain.

The group of fragile shipment include, among other things, carpentry, appliances, computer equipment, refrigeration and heating shipment. These types of shipment generally require special attention when choosing the packaging and carriage-way. Failure to supply the shipment with the necessary packaging, or, for example, not to ask for refrigeration and heat transport of the shipment which are sensitive to cold or heat, may involve restrictions on the right to compensation for damages directly related to such a cause. Dangerous shipment are subjected to special conditions

You must act when you receive your shipment

Check the shipment and its packaging state when it is dispensed to you. You have to check that the quantity agrees with that the consignment note.

If the shipment are damaged when we deliver

When receive the shipment, make a remark on the waybill/CMR if any deviations. Your complaint must not be detailed, but it is necessary to make a remark, so the complaint can be handled.

The remark is to prove that the damage occurred when we had the care of the shipment. We must be given the opportunity to trace the cause and take action so that it will not be repeated. You should also try to limit the damage when it's possible.

If the damage could be detected only when unpacking (hidden by the packaging), you must report the damage to us within seven (7) working days after the delivery, to be admissible. Also note damage can occur even before the actual commencement of shipment.

Damages may also occur in production and inventory management, before the actual packing is done.

Often we want to inspect the damage. Therefore, you must not return, sell or repair the damaged items without first contacting us. Take therefore urgently contact with our claims department. Once this is done we will send you a claim form that you should complete and return to us.
