The regulation in the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders, NSAB 2015 Section 14, shall also apply for the execution of transport tasks in Denmark. According to NSAB 2000 Section 14, a lien can be in freight for current as well as earlier claims.

4. OTHER TASKS
All other tasks, including international transport, are executed in accordance with the Nordic Association of Freight Forwarders (NSAB 2015) Standard Regulations. The regulations limit our liability for loss, deterioration or damage of freight to SDR 8.33 per kg and for delay up to the freight amount, maximum SDR 50,000 for each order.
In the event of storage, the forwarder’s total liability for damage for one and the same event is limited to SDR 500,000 (Section 27).
