Prices, Conditions & GTC
The transport price depends on the route as well as the parameters of the “length” and “weight” of your loading unit. There may also be additional charges for services such as stabling or hazardous goods surcharges above and beyond the actual cost of transport.
If you are a forwarding agent or freight forwarder, we would be happy to quote a price for the transport you want. Please use our online enquiry form.
Transports with Kombiverkehr can be subject to incidental charges before, during or after shipment that are not included in the agreed transport price and are therefore billed separately. In principle, incidental charges are invoiced to the invoice recipient responsible for the transport.
Please also note the relevant versions of the Kombiverkehr price rules and the General Terms and Conditions of Business of Kombiverkehr for inland and international transports, which the staff of National and International Transport will send you on request.
On this page we give you a summary of possible additional services that may occur during the transport handling process.
You can find an overview of the storage terms and conditions on Transport > Terminals & Agencies. Here you will find a summary for each Terminal at the Terminal location map or you create your own PDF with all your relevant terminals with "Information as PDF". You find a guide for how this works at Downloads > Incidental charges 2016.
