German Freight Forwarders' General Terms and conditions (ADSp) face massive changes


Due to the changed regulations and new legislation, a revision of the German Freight Forwarders' General Trading Terms and Conditions ADSp would be necessary. Unfortunately, the German Freight Forwarding and Logistics Association (DSLV) and various shippers associations (BDI, BGA, DIHK, HDE) were not able to agree on a common recast of the ADSp, which after 90 years of use could imply their end.  


So far, in Germany more than 90 % of all freight forwarding and logistics business was conducted in terms of the ADSp. However, the termination of negotiations between the DSLV and shippers associations does not automatically make the ADSp obsolete, emphasizes the DSLV.
