Nordiskt Speditörforbund, NSF, organizes Nordic freight forwarders through their national associations. NSF looks after its members interests by coordinating the national points of view and representing its members before Nordic, European and international bodies by safeguarding the General Conditions of the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders (NSAB) and by developing new intranordic trade projects.
NSAB contains conditions relating to the forwarder's assignment, the performance of the assignment, the liability of the forwarder as a carrier, as a provider of services and in connection with storage, the liability of the principal, complaints, prescription and the procedure in the event of disputes.
NSAB 2000 is the latest edition of the general conditions. As in all previous versions its basic theme is that the forwarder has an obligation to act professionally and with due care. Like the previous three versions, it has been developed by negotiation with the organisations of the freight shippers. In addition, NSAB 2000 deals with liability in cases of transport with a time guarantee and the forwarders obligations when performing warehousing.
NSAB 2000 contains the rules of liability to which freightforwarding jobs in the Nordic countries are subject. Thus the rules are a private agreement and therefore must be agreed between the freight forwarder and the shipper.
