Innovation of standard terms of Bruhn Spedition GmbH to ADSp 2017

For the first time in 90 years, the associations of the shipping industry and the German Association for Freight Forwarding and Logistics (Deutscher Speditions- und Logistikverband – DSLV) could not agree on joint terms and conditions for 2016. Now in daily practice, the coexistence of two different guidelines has shown to be very unfavourable. For this reason the associations resumed their negotiations and finally agreed on new common conditions: The ADSp 2017.

Market acceptance of the ADSp continues to be very high. Over 90 per cent of German freight forwarders use them as a reliable basis for their activities, benefitting from standard terms which are specifically tailored to their industry. This uniformity also continues to benefit shipping industry companies, who know exactly what to expect, even if they work with a number of different freight forwarders. We therefore decided to work solely on the basis of the German Freight Forwarders’ Standard Terms and Conditions 2017 (Allgemeine Deutsche Spediteurbedingungen 2017 – ADSp 2017) as of 1 January 2017.
