An increase in the German road tax (Maut) of approx. 40% with effect from 01.01.2019. It is only now that there is clarity on how much the German road tax will increase, and it is therefore necessary for the carriers to add this increase to the existing tariffs. The German road tax is based on the weight and number of kilometers driven within the different vehicle groups. The increase will therefore be somewhat different on the different tariffs / areas.
“Sulphur Emmision Control Areas”
Emission control areas for shipping, within these geographical areas, are special emission restrictions for shipping. In these areas, shipping companies are required to use fuel that produces lower sulfur emissions than with traditional fuel. The cost of this fuel is charged to the freight buyer as a SECA supplement on the invoice.
Some of our customers who use our transport services outside the Nordic region (import / export) have been invoiced in Norwegian kroner. The EURO / NOK exchange rate has historically been predictable and handled without any currency additions.
We are experiencing a major deviation in exchange rates these days and since most of the costs of transport outside the Nordic countries have to be paid in EURO, we absolutely see the need to impose a currency supplement in order to balance our calculations. This will be added to the settlement of those of our customers with transport outside the Nordic countries and who have NOK as settlement currency.
The currency surcharge will offset the difference between the EURO / NOK exchange rate.
The currency supplement is for November 2023, 19,8% for Europe and 9,9 % for the Nordic.

No carrier has responsibility for consequence. For you as a customer, this means that if your item is worth more than this amount per kilo, you should take out a transport insurance to secure your values.
If you are going to take out insurance, it also depends on what delivery terms you have purchased the item. Who carries the transport risk – you or the sender? If the delivery conditions of DAP or DDP are the sender, the EXW or FCA / free limit is you. The person carrying the transport risk must take out insurance on the goods. We recommend all our EXW customers to take out their own transport insurance.
Claims on invoice
Claims for delay
You can claim compensation for delay if we as a carrier have not received your goods within a reasonable time. Reasonable time is considered as the first possible transport according to our regular timetable. You can claim a maximum of the shipping fee paid for the assignment. You are not entitled to compensation for express car or the like. Our shipments are always deliveries without a promise of time. The complaint is sent to our claim department and linked to our shipping invoice.
Claims in case of damage/shortage
If damage / shortages are discovered after you have unpacked the goods, ie so-called hidden damages / shortcomings, this must be stated in writing within 7 days after delivery. If you have done this, the injury / loss is considered timely and treated as ordinary injury / loss. If you have not reported hidden injuries / shortcomings within the deadline, you have taken over the burden of proof in the case. You then have to prove that the injury / loss has not occurred to you, but during transportation. In practice, it is very difficult to prove or document this. The consequence is that you then have to carry the loss yourself.
