In the case of damage or loss, either WBS or the actual carrier is responsible. Because such an event usually occurs during transport, the actual carrier is responsible.
Whether and how compensation can be received, is formalized in the conditions of the carriers concerned. Because transport is charged per kilo, compensation is also expressed in a maximum amount per kilo.
On this page we give you an outline of the maximum liability with regard to the several modes of transport. Based on this overview, you may consider taking transport insurance. We advise you to do so anyway in the case of sea freight and International road transport.
