Freight Insurance in Spain (and worldwide), Coverage and Liability

This topic we will explain is about how works the freight insurance in Spain and worldwide.

 

Introduction

A freight forwarder provides an important function as a company that organizes shipments of freights for their customers, helping them to transport their goods either from the producer or manufacturer to the market or any other desired distribution point.

Freight forwarders are responsible to their shipping clients with respect to the services and advice they provide to them. If a physical loss or damage to their cargo is encountered, the freight Forwarder has to defend their liability based on the terms of the agreement. This could also mean a reimbursement to the cargo owner for the experienced loss or damage to their cargo.

Freight Forwarders and other shipping agents are more vulnerable today than ever before. If errors and mistakes are involved, they could amount to costly financial settlement for the cargo owner.

 

About Freight Insurance in Spain (and worldwide) and Coverage

Freight Insurance is a policy which protects Freight forwarders offering services such as carrying, storage, or facilitating the transportation of third party cargos. If Freight Forwarders are deemed liable under the specific terms and contractual obligations they entered into with their client, they may reimburse the shipper for the loss or damage to their shipped cargo. The freight insurance pays for covered damages or loss for which the Freight forwarder is found liable for, including claims and other cost made against the Freight agent.

 

What is the Legal Liability of Freight Forwarder Insurance?

The freight forwarder has some legal liabilities for loss or damage of shipper’s cargo subject to the terms of the freight insurance policy. The shipped merchandise will be automatically covered through the legal liability limits provided under the governing Freight shipping laws.

When a freight forwarder enters into a contract with a shipper, the forwarder is liable if they fail to use diligence in handling the shipping and delivery of the customer’s goods. Under such terms, if the freight forwarder fails to exercise such required due diligence they are required to compensate the shipper for any loss, or damage of their goods subject to the limitations of the policy liability often referred to as SDR. The Freight Forwarder should also pay back the shipper for any direct financial loss resulting from the Freight Forwarder’s breach of their duties and responsibilities.

 

Non Liability Freight Insurance conditions

According to the rules of  FIATA Model, no freight insurance will be effective unless instructions are provided in writing by the customer or the Shipper. The Freight insurance policy shall be effected subject to the conditions and limitations of the insurance policy.  Unless these conditions are agreed upon in writing, the Freight Forwarder shall under no condition be bound by an obligation to effect new insurance for each assignment. They may declare this condition on an existing and open policy which is held by the freight forwarding Company. The freight forwarder has no liabilities in cases involving acts or omissions resulting from third party transactions including:

  • Carriers
  • Warehousemen
  • Stevedores
  • Port authorities

 

Nevertheless Freight Forwarders may be held liable involving the above listed cases if they fail to also use due diligence in the handling of such third Party deals. The freight forwarder has legal liability when they take the role of a Principal, when they are performing the carrier’s responsibility through the use of their own transportation means. Such situation mandates Freight Forwarder liabilities particularly when they issue their own transportation document meaning they have in effect assumed carrier’s responsibilities. In situations where the shipper has received or has been issued a transport document from other agents other than the Freight forwarder, then Freight Forwarder may not be held liable under this situation.

Freight forwarder shall be held liable when:

  • They perform principal’s services by themselves, using facilities which they own or performing work through their employees
  • When the Freight Forwarder undertakes liability as the principal

 

 

Financial Limitations of Freight Forwarders Insurance

What is SDR? Freight insurance

IMF

Under normal circumstance the freight shipper may get reimbursed for all their freight damages or loss of their cargo on transit.

Generally these items are covered through the Freight insurance policy provisions.

At times, the Carrier freight insurance may reject some settlement claims due to certain conditions not addressed or not covered as part of the policy.

The shipper will hold the shipping broker or shipping agent as some call them still responsible for the loss or damage of their goods and merchandise which may be lost or damaged during the course of the transportation process.

Realizing their exposure to risk, the freight brokers and agents may also realize their risk exposure under this scenario and the needs to guard and protect themselves against such risk and possible claims when certain situations result in the carrier refusing to settle the claim. Contingent insurance comes to play when the freight insurance carrier refuses to pay for all the loss.

 

Freight Forwarders may not be held liable for a loss or damage of goods if the total amount exceeds 2 SDR per each kilogram of the total gross weight of the lost or damaged goods, unless the greater amount is recovered from the primary shipper.

All goods not delivered within 90 days of the expected delivery date, the owner of the goods may consider the goods as lost.  There are limitations for liability for delay, which is limited to an amount not exceeding the total value of the service which necessitated such delay.

The Freight Forwarders liability for any other type of loss shall not exceed 10.000 SDR for any occurrence of such incident but if a larger amount is received from the person to whom the Freight Forwarder is primarily responsible, total payment may exceed 10.000 SDR.

 

Freight Forwarders Liability exclusions

Freight Forwarder will not be held liable for the following:

  • Undeclared Valuables
  • Undeclared Dangerous goods by the Forwarder up to the contract conclusion time
  • No compensation from loss associated from delay unless such loss is agreed in writing
  • Indirect loss from consequential circumstances

 

Conclusion

It’s important have all freight insurance information prior ship any cargo in order to decide if contract a all risk insurance for the cargo.

Spain and EU guidelines on wooden packaging materials. ISPM15.

ISPM15 rule was born due, plant health is likely one of the duties of the European Fee’s Directorate- Common for helth and Client Safety, as a part of its total function to make sure the protection of foods and safety of customers within the EU.

Stopping organisms dangerous to vegetation or plant merchandise from being launched into and spreading inside the EU, and regulating imports from third nations according to worldwide plant well being requirements, are among the many precept targets of EU plant well health laws.

Why ISPM15 Mark

In step with these targets, new EU necessities for wooden packaging materials, designed to cease doubtlessly dangerous plant pests from getting into the EU in wooden packaging, entered into pressure in March 2005.

The EU necessities for wooden packaging materials and dunnage are based mostly on the 2002 FAO Worldwide Normal for Phytosanitary Measures (ISPM) n° 15. Directive 2004/102/EC, which entered into power on 1 March 2005, requires the next measures to be taken for wooden packaging materials and dunnage coming into the EU from all third countries:

  1. The wooden should be both warmth handled or fumigated with methyl bromide, in step with ISPM15 procedures;
  2. The wooden have to be formally marked with the ISPM15 stamp;
  3. From March 2006, all wooden packaging materials imported into the EU should be debarked.

 

These necessities don’t apply to:

  • Wooden of 6mm thickness or much less;
  • Wooden packaging materials made totally from processed wooden produced utilizing glue, warmth and strain, resembling plywood, oriented strand board and veneer;
  • Wooden packaging materials utilized in intra-Neighborhood commerce.

 

Dunnage should meet the identical standards as wooden packaging materials. Nevertheless, it’s exempted till the tip of 2007 whether it is made from wooden free from bark, pests and indicators of stay pests.

ISPM15 Mark – Import

Wooden packaging materials getting into the EU ought to carry the ISPM15 mark, which has the universally recognisable, non-language particular IPPC emblem and three codes (nation, producer and remedy measure utilized).

For debarked wooden, the letters “DB” must also be on the mark. The mark permits for straightforward verification that the wooden meets the mandatory necessities throughout inspection on the level of export or import. Markings must be legible, seen, everlasting and non-transferable.

The usage of the mark additionally permits the import necessities for wooden packaging materials to stay a paperless system. For packaging materials which already existed earlier than 1 March 2005, a mark consisting solely of the three codes and with out the IPPC emblem will probably be accepted till the tip of 2007.
Approval for the usage of the ISPM15 mark have to be obtained from the Nationwide Plant Safety Organisation or an organisation formally mandated by the NPPO.

What is a L/C (Letter of Credit)?

A Letter of Credit is a general letter of promise from a lending institution or an investor that communicates in writing to you and any interested parties how much that financial institution would be willing to lend you. The Letter of Credit does not include the interest rate or any other terms of the loan.

The Letter of Credit is frequently utilized in international trade, where cargo is being bought and sold. In this case, the L/C is regulated by the International Chamber of Commerce, under the stipulations identified as the “Uniform Customs and Practice for Documentary Credits.”

A sight L/C is a Letter of Credit whereby the exporter of the cargo receives payment for goods immediately from the buyer upon presentation of the Letter of Credit. In other words, the sight L/C is given to the seller. When the seller presents the sight L/C to the purchaser, payment is due and payable. Another version of the sight L/C is the date/time sight L/C, whereupon payment is due and payable on the specified date, by the specified time.

When used in international cargo purchases, a Letter of Credit may also stipulate what forms of payment are acceptable. For instance, bank giros, wire transfers and bank checques may be use for payment because they automatically calculate varying currency conversion rates.

Letter of credit
