Shipments are insured in limited sizes by default. There are several conditions for the Netherlands versus internationally.
Transport all over the Netherlands:
For transport that takes place entirely within the Netherlands, the AVC conditions are used. AVC stands for General Transport Conditions. The liability of the carrier is €3.40 per kilogram of weight transported.
Example: You have a laptop transported with a value of €500 and a weight of 2 kg. In case of damage, you can “only” hold the carrier liable for:
2 kg * €3,40 = €6,80
Now the CMR Convention applies. This is the Convention for International Transport of Goods by Road. This law also assumes a fee per kilogram of weight. The remuneration is SDR 8.33 (composition of currencies reflecting economic and financial relations in the world). An SDR fluctuates and depends on multiple factors. Currently the price fluctuates around €9,00/€10.00 per kilogram of transported weight. On the website of the IMF you can find the SDR rate.
Example: You transport the same laptop and damage is caused. The SDR price is currently €9.40 (February 2019). The fee is then:
2 kg * 8,33 SDR = 2 * €9,40 = €18,80
Insure: Easy2send All–Risk insurance
We can ensure your goods all-risk up to a maximum coverage of €450,000 per shipment. The premium for this is 0.4 of the value with a minimum of €17.50 per transport that you want to insure and has an own risk of €350. For example, you want to cover a value of €10,000, then the premium costs are:
€10,000 * 0,4 = €40.00
