Terms and Conditions

 

When ordering Advance Baggage's services you, as "Shipper", are agreeing, on your behalf and on behalf of anyone else with an interest in the Shipment, that the Terms and Conditions shall apply from the time that Advance Baggage accepts the Shipment unless otherwise agreed in writing by an authorised officer of Advance Baggage. Your statutory rights and entitlements under any defined service feature (for which additional payment has been made) are not affected.

"Shipment" means all documents or parcels that travel under one waybill and which may be carried by any means Advance Baggage chooses, including air, road or any other carrier. A "waybill" shall include any label produced by Advance Baggage automated systems, air waybill, or consignment note and shall incorporate these Terms and Conditions. Every Shipment is transported on a limited liability basis as provided herein. If Shipper requires greater protection, then insurance may be arranged at an additional cost. (Please see below for further information). "Advance Baggage" means any member of the Advance Baggage Worldwide Express Network.

1. Customs, Exports and Imports

Advance Baggage may perform any of the following activities on Shipper's behalf in order to provide its services to Shipper: 

  1. Complete any documents, amend product or service codes, and pay any duties or taxes required under applicable laws and regulations, 
  2. Act as Shipper's forwarding agent for customs and export control purposes and as Receiver solely for the purpose of designating a customs broker to perform customs clearance and entry and
  3. Rredirect the Shipment to Receiver's import broker or other address upon request by any person who Advance Baggage believes in its reasonable opinion to be authorised.

2. Unacceptable Shipments

Shipper agrees that its Shipment is acceptable for transportation and is deemed unacceptable if: it is classified as hazardous material, dangerous goods, prohibited or restricted articles by IATA (International Air Transport Association), ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation), any applicable government department or other relevant organisation; no customs declaration is made when required by applicable customs regulations; or Advance Baggage decides it cannot transport an item safely or legally (such items include but are not limited to: animals, bullion, currency, bearer form negotiable instruments, precious metals and stones, firearms, parts thereof and ammunition, human remains, pornography and illegal narcotics/drugs). Advance Baggage Service will also not ship anything to anybody to Cuba, Iraq, Iran, Libya Sudan or in any embargoed country.

3. Deliveries & Undeliverables

Shipments cannot be delivered to PO boxes or postal codes. Shipments are delivered to the Receiver's address given by Shipper (which in the case of mail services shall be deemed to be the first receiving postal service) but not necessarily to the named Receiver personally. Shipments to addresses with a central receiving area will be delivered to that area. If Receiver refuses delivery or to pay for delivery, or the Shipment is deemed to be unacceptable, or it has been undervalued for customs purposes, or Receiver cannot be reasonably identified or located, Advance Baggage shall use reasonable efforts to return the Shipment to Shipper at Shipper's cost, failing which the Shipment may be released, disposed of or sold by Advance Baggage without incurring any liability whatsoever to Shipper or anyone else, with the proceeds applied against service charges and related administrative costs and the balance of the proceeds of a sale to be returned to Shipper.

4. Inspection

Advance Baggage has the right to open and inspect a Shipment without prior notice to Shipper. 

5. Shipment Charges & Billing

Shipper shall pay or reimburse Advance Baggage for all Shipment charges, storage charges, duties and taxes owed for services provided by Advance Baggage or incurred by Advance Baggage on Shipper's or Receiver's or any third party's behalf and all claims, damages, fines and expenses incurred if the Shipment is deemed unacceptable for transport as described in Section 2.

Advance Baggage contracts with Shipper on the basis that Advance Baggage's liability is strictly limited to direct loss only and to the per kilo/Ib limits in this Section 6. All other types of loss or damage are excluded (including but not limited to lost profits, income, interest, future business), whether such loss or damage is special or indirect, and even if the risk of such loss or damage was brought to Advance Baggage's attention before or after acceptance of the Shipment since special risks can be insured by Shipper. If a Shipment combines carriage by air, road or other mode of transport, it shall be presumed that any loss or damage occurred during the air period of such carriage unless proven otherwise. Advance Baggage's liability in respect of any one Shipment transported, without prejudice to Sections 7-11, is limited to its actual cash value and shall not exceed the greater of $US 100 or: $US 20.00/kilogram or $US 9.07/lb for Shipments transported by air or other non-road mode of transportation; or $US 10.00/kilogram or $US 4.54/lb for Shipments transported by road (not applicable to the US).

Claims are limited to one claim per Shipment settlement of which will be full and final settlement for all loss or damage in connection therewith.

Shipment insurance does not cover indirect loss or damage, or loss or damage caused by delays.

9. Delayed Shipments

Advance Baggage will make every reasonable effort to deliver the Shipment according to Advance Baggage's regular delivery schedules, but these are not guaranteed and do not form part of the contract. Advance Baggage is not liable for any damages or loss caused by delays.

These include but are not limited to:-"Act of God" - e.g. earthquake, cyclone, storm, flood, fog; "Force Majeure" - e.g. war, plane crash or embargo; any defect or characteristic related to the nature of the Shipment, even if known to Advance Baggage; riot or civil commotion; any act or omission by a person not employed or contracted by Advance Baggage e.g. Shipper, Receiver, third party, customs or other government official; industrial action; and electrical or magnetic damage to, or erasure of, electronic or photographic images, data or recordings.

11. Warsaw Convention

If the Shipment is transported by air and involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of departure, the Warsaw Convention, if applicable, governs and in most cases limits Advance Baggage's liability for loss or damage.
