The importance of freight insurance
Although our company has an efficient cargo handling and maintenance system, the chances freight damage or loss due to circumstances beyond our control still remain, and the carrier's responsibility is limited for the entrusted freight. It is governed in accordance with the international conventions.
The Geneva Convention of 1956 that governs carrier’s liability, provides for the maximum liability of the carrier of 8.33 SDR* per gross kilogram load.
* SDR means Special Drawing Rights.
You can find the exact rate of the SDR on the website of Lithuanian Bank: http://www.lb.lt
