How do we work?

The term transport – refering to the goods, defines the process of bringing or taking away of goods, on a certain way with a vehicle (conveyance). Simply pronounced is this the process of the delivery or collection of cargo from one place to the other, for example the transaction of the goods from the producer to the seller either through an employee driver, or through an official transport company, like PKJ International Transport.

Further differences in transport are: the internal operation transports and external operation transports. At the internal operation  transports the owner of the transport object is not changing. Here for example it gets transported from one plant to the other. The external operation transports has to do with ownership transition and here for example it is going from the plant of the supplier to the point of sale of the customer.

In year 1936 the the International Chamber of Commerce , called ICC, have placed for the first time the Incoterms. Incoterms is the shorage of “International Commercial Terms”. Because of the introduction in the international transport system the rights and obligations of the single parties have been settled exactly, and therefore any difficulties in communication for the terms of conditions can be avoided, as well on international basis.

The Incoterms control exactly, who is responsible for the transport costs and who is taking the financial risk, if goods get lost. The payment conditions, the place of court and the transition of owners right on to the seller are not regulated by the Incoterms. This has to be agreed in every single situation. The actual valid Incoterms for the “international transport” are the “INCOTERMS 2010” and “INCOTERMS 2000

Warehouse Legal Liability

PKJ transport operator is negligent in the care of the customer’s goods, the insurance carrier directly pays the customer for the loss incurred. For that reason, a customer cannot be, and does not want to be, named as an additional insured under the warehouse operator’s warehouse legal liability policy.
As a warehouse operator’s warehouse legal liability policy only pays a customer if the warehouse operator has been negligent in caring for a customer’s goods, the customer is still responsible for insuring its goods against other types of losses (e.g., fire, windstorm, etc.).
It is also important to note that virtually every warehouse legal liability policy excludes liability for loss or damage in instances where the warehouse operator has agreed to take on a higher degree of responsibility for the customer’s goods beyond what is legally required (i.e., “reasonable care”). This exclusion is necessary because warehouse legal liability policies are underwritten by insurance carriers on the basis of insuring the risks associated with the warehouse operator’s negligence. If a warehouse operator has agreed to assume greater liability for a customer’s goods, then the risks are obviously much more extensive than what the insurance carrier took into account when setting its premium.
In the event of significant loss or damage to the customer’s goods attributable to the warehouse operator’s failure to take reasonable care of the customer’s goods, both the warehouse operator and the customer depend on the warehouse operator’s warehouse legal liability policy to respond to the claim. As such, if a warehousing services agreement contains any provision that requires the warehouse operator to assume liability for a customer’s goods beyond the standard of “reasonable care”, then such a provision may void the warehouse operator’s warehouse legal liability coverage thereby putting both parties in an unfavorable position.
We hope that this has helped to answer any questions that you had regarding Warehouse Legal Liability Insurance and the relationship it plays between you and your third party logistics provider.
