8. Entire Agreement
This Agreement is the complete and entire agreement between the parties related to the subject matter hereto and supersedes any prior agreement, whether written or oral.
Unless Carrier agrees otherwise, the shipper shall make out, or have made out on his behalf, an air waybill in the form, manner and number of copies prescribed by Carrier, and shall delivery such air waybill to Carrier simultaneously with the acceptance of the cargo by Carrier for carriage. However, charges for carriage and other charges, insofar as they have been ascertained, shall be inserted in the air waybill by Carrier. Carrier may require the shipper to make out, or have made out on his behalf, separate air waybills when there is more than one package.
Carrier, with the express or implied consent of the shipper, may substitute for the delivery of an air waybill a shipment record to preserve a record of the carriage to be performed. If such shipment record is used Carrier shall, if so requested by the shipper, deliver to the shipper in accordance with Carrier’s regulations a receipt for the cargo permitting identification of the shipment and access, in accordance with Carrier’s regulations, to the information contained in the shipment record.
Compliance with Government Requirements
6.1.1 The shipper shall comply with all applicable laws, customs and other government regulations of any country to, from, through or over which the cargo may be carried, including those relating to the packing, carriage or delivery of the cargo, and shall, together with the shipment, furnish such information and deliver such documents as may be necessary to comply with such laws and regulations. Carrier shall not be obliged to enquire into the correctness or sufficiency of such information or documents. Carrier shall not be liable to the shipper or any other person for loss or expense due to shipper’s failure to comply with this provision. The shipper shall be liable to Carrier for any damage occasioned by the failure of the shipper to comply with this provision.
6.1.2 Carrier shall not be liable for refusing to carry any shipment if Carrier reasonably determines in good faith that such refusal is required by any applicable law, government regulation, demand, order or requirement.
THE CARRIAGE OF CARGO BY AIR IS SUBJECT TO THE CONDITIONS OF CARRIAGE OF THE CARRIER CONCERNED AND MAY ALSO BE SUBJECT TO THE WARSAW CONVENTION OR THE MONTREAL CONVENTION, WHICH MAY LIMIT THE CARRIERS LIABILITY IN CERTAIN CIRCUMSTANCES. THE CARRIAGE OF CARGO BY ASACARGO IS SUBJECT TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS STIPULATED IN ASACARGO’ AIR WAYBILL AND TO ASACARGO GENERAL CONDITIONS OF CARRIAGE FOR CARGO, BOTH OF WHICH CAN BE ACCESSED AT ANY TIME FROM THE BOTTOM OF ANY PAGE OF THE SERVICE.
Limitation of Liability
If the carriage involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country other than the country of departure, the Warsaw Convention or the Montreal Convention may be applicable and in most cases limit the liability of the Carrier in respect of loss of, damage or delay to cargo. Depending on the applicable regime, and unless a higher value is declared, liability of the Carrier may be limited to 17 Special Drawing Rights per kilogram or 250 French gold francs per kilogram, converted into national currency under applicable law. Carrier will t reat 250 French gold francs t o be t he conversion equivalent of 17 Special Drawing Right s unless a great er amount is specified in t he Carrier’s condit ions of carriage.
