General law and case law apply unless otherwise stated in the present or suppliers' terms.
1.6 These business conditions form the basis of the agreement on which Coolparcel will transport packages, pallets, containers, moving goods and documents.
1.7 Unless special services have been agreed, the transport services that Coolparcel 's customer service must ensure are limited to the transport of the ordered consignment, and where it is relevant, to pick up and deliver the consignment.
1.8 Rejection of Shipment. Coolparcel offers freight on behalf of reputable freight companies, but does not ship itself and is not a universal carrier under the US Postal Act or other applicable national laws. Coolparcel therefore reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to refuse transportation of any package up to and including the time the package is submitted to Coolparcel or applicable supplier for the purpose of transportation. This also applies, for example, to packages that immediately meet the supplier’s conditions, but are assessed by the driver as unsuitable for transport, due to the nature of the contents, inadequate packaging in relation to the special nature of the contents or the like.
1.9 These terms and conditions apply to all of Coolparcel 's activities and services performed on behalf of the Customer, regardless of whether these are performed by Coolparcel or by Coolparcel's suppliers.

DEVIATIONS ARE TAKEN FOR THE SECURITY OF THE GOODS AND LIMITATIONS THAT ARE SPECIFIC TO THE INDIVIDUAL SUPPLIERS, WHY IN THESE SITUATIONS REFERENCE TO THE SUPPLIERS'S AND THE TRADE OF THE SUPPLIERS.
1.11 Coolparcel uses suppliers such as UPS, USPS, DHL and FEDEX to provide Coolparcel 's services. Coolparcel seeks to handle the contact to these service providers on behalf of the Customer in case of any customer service tasks. Depending on the situation, however, there may be cases where it will be necessary for the Customer to communicate directly with the applicable supplier.
1.12 Terms that do not appear in these terms and conditions, or the terms and conditions of the referred supplier, or are not otherwise agreed to in writing between and signed by Coolparcel and the Customer shall be null and void and shall not apply.
2.1 WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THE PRICE
2.1.1 The prices indicated include any fuel surcharges and are shown both with and without VAT, as applicable.
2.1.2 Prices of shipments outside the US are VAT-free and consequently charges etc. on shipments outside the US are also VAT-free.
2.1.3 The price is free of customs duties and duties, see section on customs and customs documents. The price is calculated based on the weight or size of the shipment, the so-called volume weight.
2.1.4 Volume calculation is the transport industry's way of converting volume into a figure comparable to the weight of the shipment. To find the volume weight, you first multiply the length, width and height in inches or cm. Then divide by 5000. Ex (L x W x H)/5000. Some suppliers can use other volume calculation factors.
2.1.5 The volume weight is held against the actual weight. The higher weight of the two is the basis for calculating the price.
2.1.6 All shipments are measured and weighed electronically enroute to the recipient, and if there is a deviation from the information provided by the Customer, which makes the shipment more expensive than intended, Coolparcel reserves the right to re-invoice the Customer for the deviation, as well as to impose an after-invoicing fee of US $15 (ex. VAT) and, if necessary, reject the shipment. If the Customer orders and pays for larger or heavier shipments than the Customer actually gets transported, this does not result in the possibility of compensation or refund of the difference between ordered and factually measured and weighted shipment.
2.1.7 The price is adjusted continuously and the price calculator's listing may therefore vary.
2.1.8 The price includes that the Customer is generally covered for losses through the selected supplier's insurance. In the event that the selected supplier does not offer cover, Coolparcel's standard insurance will take effect and provide the Customer with cover of up to US$100 (including VAT). If each supplier offers standard insurance, it is this insurance that covers the entire cost of the Customer. If further coverage is desired, the Customer can take out supplementary insurance through Coolparcel. Further information regarding insurance can be found in Section 15 "Insurance" below.
2.1.9 The price of shipments is calculated based on the Customer's information entered (dimensions, weight, quantity, pick-up point, destination and desired level of service) in the price calculator, which is available at www.Coolparcel.com.
2.1.10 FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, IT IS THE CUSTOMER'S OWN AND SOLE RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE THAT THE INFORMATION ENTERED IS CORRECT. IF THE INFORMATION ENTERED IS INCORRECT AND DOES NOT MATCH, IT IS THE CUSTOMER ALONE WHO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY ADDITIONAL COSTS AND EXPENSES THAT THIS MAY ENTAIL.
2.1.11 THE PRICE CALCULATOR AT WWW.COOLPARCEL.COM ALWAYS FORMS THE BASIS OF THE CUSTOMER'S PRICE UNLESS ANOTHER WRITTEN OFFER HAS BEEN RECEIVED FROM COOLPARCEL. THE PRICE STATED AND CONFIRMED DURING THE ORDER IS VALID AND IS CONSIDERED ACCEPTED WHEN THE ORDER HAS BEEN COMPLETED ON WWW.COOLPARCEL.COM.
2.2 EXPENSES NOT INCLUDED IN THE PRICE
2.2.1 Customer error, change or missing fees. In the event of a defect or defect on the part of the Customer, the Customer will be charged for any additional costs and expenses that this may entail in accordance with Article 11(1) of Directive 2001/18/EC or other applicable national law and regulations. Application of Coolparcel’s and suppliers' terms and conditions, depending on the nature of the error, may also result in the cancellation or revision of large parts of Coolparcel’s and freight suppliers' delivery times, guarantees and general liability. Fees are not limited to, but are primarily made through, the following standard rates:
184.108.40.206 Change of recipient address in error or redirection to a new address within the same zip code on the Customer's initiative US$10 (ex VAT)
220.127.116.11 Incorrect or deficient address US$10 (ex VAT)

22.214.171.124 Non-system conform (not stackable), incomplete or inadequate packaging US$10 (ex VAT)
126.96.36.199 Misinformed weight or size, up to US$10 (ex VAT)
188.8.131.52 Exceeding the maximum weight and/or size of the supplier for dispatch to parcel shop US$10 (ex VAT)
184.108.40.206 Exceeding the freight supplier's maximum or minimum size for parcel transport US$20 (ex VAT)
220.127.116.11 Unsuccessful delivery attempts, denied receipt, no one present to receive at the address or failure to pick up in parcel shop resulting in new delivery attempt or return to sender US$10 (ex VAT)
18.104.22.168.1 Inability to deliver to the consignee shall be treated as denied receipt. Whether the recipient refuses to open the door or if the recipient is not at the address, it requires handling beyond the agreed one, which can result in additional costs and delays.
22.214.171.124 Unsuccessful delivery attempts, denied receipt, no presence to receive at the address or non-collection resulting in delivery to parcel shop or depot US$5 (ex VAT)
126.96.36.199 Home recipient address (when business is selected) US$5 (ex VAT)
188.8.131.52 Using cancelled label - if the Customer cancels their purchase or for any other reason cancels a package label - and yet uses the cancelled package label, shall result in a fee of US$40 (ex VAT).
2.2.2 Beneficiary Dependent Expenditure
184.108.40.206 When the recipient refuses receipt, freight suppliers and authorities are given tasks and responsibilities that are beyond expectations and usually entail additional costs. Therefore, both suppliers and customs authorities etc. can collect cover for various expenses, as well as any costs associated with destruction or return. Any costs incurred in this connection are borne solely by the Customer, who will be invoiced for this purpose.
220.127.116.11 In general, all costs related to return shipping are borne by the sender/Customer, and not Coolparcel.
18.104.22.168 The price of business shipments are based on easier access to professional recipients at the address. Therefore, most freight suppliers require a business recipient to meet a number of different requirements. This could include staffing during office hours, clear signage, located in commercial housing and the like. For the specific requirements, as mentioned in 1.10, we refer to the selected freight supplier's terms of business, which are also attached to the order confirmation.
2.3 Supplementary Benefits
The following sections are products or services that can be purchased in addition to the freight that the Customer receives from the carrier. The various types of additional services extend the service that Coolparcel already offers.
2.4 Supplementary Insurance
If the Customer wants more than the insurance offered by the supplier carrier and more than the basic insurance offered by Coolparcel, then the Customer can take out supplementary insurance as further detailed in Section 15 below.
2.5 Urgent Treatment and Priority Insurance Management
2.5.1 When purchasing priority insurance management, Coolparcel actively seeks to clarify liability for any damages with priority over other casework. The purchase of urgent compensation means that any compensation for damage or loss will, where possible to clarify, be paid directly to the Customer before the often time consuming administrative procedures and transactions are completed. Once the supplier carrier has completed the full casework, assessment and possible payment of compensation, this compensation will accrue to Coolparcel. If there is less compensation from the carrier, the amount paid will be recovered.
2.5.2 If it turns out that the Customer has not complied with the general requirements for the shipment and terms of liability or if the replaced shipment appears after compensation has been paid, the full amount of compensation may be recovered.
2.5.3 Urgent compensation applies only to packages worth up to US$100.
2.5.4 For the avoidance of doubt, general terms of liability and compensation will still be in force and the Customer shall be responsible for complying with the requirements that the carrier makes for e.g. packaging, correct information, etc. to be entitled to compensation.
2.5.5 It is shall always be the carrier's own insurance and terms of compensation that are applicable and are only paid in advance by Coolparcel.
2.6 Monitoring Services Purpose
2.6.1 Monitoring services are an exceptional monitoring of the supplier's transport and administrative processing of the Customer's shipment, in order to
- Increase the Customer's ability to exercise due diligence,
- be able to react as early as possible to any problems,
- minimize the total delay when a shipment requires an action,
- increase the success rate of replacement of damaged shipments,
- increase the success rate of the search for lost consignments,
- increase the likelihood that the Customer's customs documents have been correctly completed, and
- increase the overall success rate of customs clearance.
2.6.2 Monitoring, for example, the track and trace information available through the chosen freight supplier, including both publicly available information and any information that the chosen supplier may make available to Coolparcel's systems. The frequency of queries and monitoring of the carrier's data depends on the selected service package and any limitations in the different systems of the carriers.
2.6.3 Informing the Customer of any situations that require the Customer to take responsibility and act in a timely manner to comply with applicable terms, conditions and customs rules in the countries concerned. When Coolparcel becomes aware of an irregularity, the Customer will be informed with a request to ensure that everything is correct and correct any errors. Coolparcel can often only provide information, instructions and guidance, and it is the Customer's responsibility to comply with the requirements and conditions that the supplier and any other party to the freight provide. Monitoring services are essential to pay close attention to the Customer's shipments.
2.6.4 Monitoring services are not a takeover of Customer responsibility. It is only a service that seeks to create greater success rates and fewer errors and losses by informing the Customer of their responsibilities in any situations that require action in connection with any customs documents and during transport. It is a service that gives Customers a better basis for being able to exercise due diligence to the greatest extent possible despite any limited experience with freight.
2.6.5 To be clear, Coolparcel does not offer shipping services and is not up to date with customs rules in the world's 251 countries and territories. It is therefore the sole responsibility of the Customer to ensure, for example through contact with various embassies and customs authorities, that all customs rules are complied with. Coolparcel's service is not a full-time guard, which the price also reflects, and is limited to informing the Customer about the challenges that Coolparcel recognizes or assumes may arise, based on the experience and knowledge Coolparcel has available to it. Once a potential challenge is recognized, the Customer and Coolparcel are notified seeking to clarify as much as possible what the current status is and what actions may have been required, prior to dialogue with the Customer. If action is required, this is still the Customer's responsibility, for example, compliance with customs rules may require the need for urgent communication with the recipient or similar requirements that Coolparcel does not have the physical opportunity to meet.
2.6.6 Coolparcel will inform the Customer of any requirements for action and, as far as possible, of their deadlines, and is not responsible either for the action itself or for meeting deadlines. It is the Customer's own responsibility to follow up on any deadlines and ensure that these are met. Coolparcel discloses this information to the extent that Coolparcel has been informed of it by the supplier, but Coolparcel is not responsible for examining time limits or the like in the carrier's terms or customs rules.
2.6.7 Coolparcel shall not be held liable for any direct or indirect loss, damage, claim for damages or consequences of inaction before the expiry of any time limits, either on behalf of the Customer or by some actors or authorities, unless otherwise required to by applicable law. This responsibility rests solely with the Customer. Coolparcel is similarly not responsible for errors in the various systems, mail services, equipment, etc. of the carrier and/or suppliers, but is solely responsible for its own actions, unless otherwise directly provided by applicable law.
3.1 Once ordered and paid, an invoice and address label are sent to the Customer by e-mail. In addition, these terms and conditions are sent to the applicable supplier used.
3.2 FOR THE AVOIDANCE OF DOUBT, THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS DETERMINE REQUIREMENTS FOR THE CUSTOMER'S PACKAGING AND PREPARATION OF THE SHIPMENT, THE SUPPLIER'S HANDLING, DELIVERY AND ANY COMPENSATION, ETC.
3.3 If the Customer has an invoice scheme and pays by invoice, the address label is sent by e-mail and the applicable invoice is sent at a later date.
3.4 Once the payment has been made by the Customer, the amount is reserved on the payment card used. When the address label is sent, the money is withdrawn from the payment card, as the address label acts as a part of the shipment. In pallet transport, the money is withdrawn from the card upon conclusion of the agreement, as the transmission of a carrier is a cost part of the ordered service. For the avoidance of doubt, please note that using the right of withdrawal before collection entails a fee for unsuccessful haulier driving for pickup.
3.5 Invoice Scheme
3.5.1 It is possible for business Customers to pay by invoice. The agreement must be confirmed by Coolparcel in writing and requires a valid EIN number and a positive credit approval.
22.214.171.124 Payment via EIN
Public authorities and institutions as well as business Customers with an EIN number are free to use Coolparcel. When Customers shop via EIN, it is crucial that all orders contain any information necessary for payment to Coolparcel to take place. Lack of information can result in extensive work for Coolparcel with the tracking of the employee in question, permits and numbers etc. which is why a fee of US$100 will be charged.
3.5.2 Customers with invoice arrangements can trade freight up to the maximum amount for which they are credited, however, Coolparcel reserves the right to close invoice purchases when the maximum is reached or if Coolparcel becomes aware of factors that affect the current risk assessment of the Customer. In such cases, the Customer can normally continue to trade via credit card.
3.5.3 If the Customer wants greater credit, the Customer can agree to a security deposit. In this case, the amount paid will be multiplied by a factor determined by Coolparcel and increase the credit by the calculated amount. The deposit paid is not remunerated and the Customer can have the deposit paid out at any time if the original credit has not been exceeded.
3.5.4 Unless otherwise separately agreed in writing with Coolparcel, all invoice Customer will receive a total invoice of all orders ordered during the week due seven (7) days after the invoice date, if the second payment deadline has not been agreed in writing. Coolparcel only sends invoices for the weeks in which the Customer has placed orders. Weekly invoicing is the chosen frequency regardless of the size of the business customer to ensure that it is possible to pay outstanding invoices even before they are due, provided that the credit is used to the maximum.
3.5.5 The invoice sent by credit card payment is free of charge. For the weekly invoices sent to Customer on the invoice scheme, a fee of US$3 (ex VAT) per week is charged to cover the administrative expenses.
3.5.6 Invoices are sent by the email specified under the "Invoice E-mail" field, and only the Customer is responsible for reading and responding to sent emails and ensuring that the correct email address has been provided.
3.5.7 Coolparcel reserves the right to terminate with immediate effect any agreement on invoices, credit and deposits if Coolparcel deems it necessary in its sole discretion.
3.6 In any dispute involving monies owed to Coolparcel, Coolparcel shall be entitled to all costs of collection, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and interest at 1.5% per month or the highest rate allowed by law, whichever is less unless a lower amount is agreed to by Coolparcel.
4.1 As a rule, Coolparcel 's services are exempt from the right of withdrawal. If a purchase/order is cancelled, this can be cancelled upon request to Coolparcel either in writing, by e-mail or by telephone. If an e-mail is contacted, this must be marked with the heading "Cancellation", and sent to info@Coolparcel.com with the corresponding order number, order date, name and phone number.
4.2 Cancellation can usually be made up to two (2) hours before the agreed pick-up time.
4.3 The money is returned to the bank account within 1 to 3 bank days to private Customers and companies that do not have invoice arrangements. However, this may vary depending on the credit card used for the purchase.
4.4 Once the shipment has been picked up or delivered, the right of withdrawal terminates.
5.1 When a service with pickup is selected, it is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that the shipment is properly packaged and ready for collection. For additional terms and conditions regarding pickup, please refer to the selected supplier's terms and conditions for the selected service attached to the order confirmation.

8.1 In some cases, there may be longer delivery times for the parcels to be cleared. Customs officers can always take out a package for inspection or pause the shipment until the information they need is present. Unfortunately, this will sometimes result in slightly longer delivery time than stated. Any intervention by public authorities which is not the result of actions by Coolparcel or suppliers shall nullify all delivery deadlines and any associated guarantees and their respective possibilities for compensation.
8.2 For more information on delay compensation, see Section 16 - Limitation of Liability below.
9.1 When ordering shipping, the Customer will only be offered services from suppliers who are able to handle a shipment with the stated data for dimensions and weight. If the physical consignment differs from the stated objectives, it may result in refusal of shipment or post-invoicing, as referred to in the price section. The sizes offered depend not only on the supplier's generally offered services and options, but also on the specific trade agreement concluded between Coolparcel and the specific supplier, which is why there may be suppliers who will not be offered in the price calculator, despite their capacity in direct trade.
9.2 In the event of exceeding the individual supplier's maximum size and/or weight requirements, any guarantee of delivery time is nullified and Coolparcel and freight suppliers reserve the right to reject all or part of the shipments or impose fees for any costs that the shipment may entail.
10.1 For the avoidance of doubt, please note that only content with correct value indication is to be considered as legal consignments. In case of doubt in any action for damages, items are valued at the documented cost price. Used items shall be valued at the lower of the following two amounts:
- the documented cost price; and
- the current turnover value content with demonstrably false value indication is categorized as prohibited goods, thereby eliminating Coolparcel 's liability.

In addition, no amount in excess of the amount insured and/or declared on the any customs unless otherwise required by applicable law.
10.2.3 In the event of a discrepancy between any declared customs value and value expressed in the supplementary insurance, the minimum amount of the two will determine the amount of the compensation and, moreover, in accordance with the applicable rules on what can be insured.
10.2.3.1 For the avoidance of doubt, please note that Section 1.10 also applies to the suppliers with the exception of the conditions for liability and insurance where instead the general provisions of the Nordic Freight Forwarding Association" (NSAB 2015) apply.
10.2.3.2 when referring to the "general provisions of the Nordic Freight Forwarders' Association" (NSAB 2015) in connection with compensation and insurance, it has, among other things, the financial consequence that a maximum amount of up to 8.33 sdrs per kilo can be covered, which in US Dollars per 01.07.19 amounted to approx. 10 USD per kilo.

11.2 Coolparcel does not control packaging and does not replace transport damage if it is considered that packaging was not sufficient and sound. Packages must be packaged, with both internal and external packaging, so that they can be treated in up to several packing sorting plants without injury.
11.3 For automated sorting to be possible, all shipments must be packaged so that they are stackable. Shipments that are wrapped in cardboard but are not box-shaped can incur costs and cause delays in automated sorting systems. Be aware of the selected supplier's specific requirements and terms and conditions.

The material on the outer layer must be CARDBOARD, unless otherwise agreed in writing with Coolparcel prior to shipment. The inner packaging must be tight shock absorbing material and must be adapted to its contents. All cavities in all directions must be filled with suitable material to protect the contents, even in the case of the shipment being turned upside down or sided during transport. The Customer shall ensure that there can be no displacement, pressure or shock, either between the objects or between the contents and sides of the packaging. For further description of the packaging requirements of the supplier concerned, please refer to the selected supplier's terms and conditions attached to the order confirmation.
11.5 For the avoidance of doubt, pay special attention to the fact that non-compliance with packaging requirements can result in costs and waivers of claims.

11.6.1 Porcelain and glass and ceramics.
11.6.2 Electronics (applies to all electrical items)

Coolparcel shall not be responsible for action taken or fines or penalties assessed by any governmental agency against the shipment because of the failure of the Customer to comply with the law or the requirements or regulations of any governmental agency or with a notification issued to the Customer by any such agency.
12.1 It is the Customer's duty to ensure that there is an address label on each package or pallet in the shipment. The address label to be used is sent from Coolparcel to the email address provided by the Customer. It is the Customer's responsibility to forward the address label to the sender if the sender and customer are not one and the same.
12.2 For the avoidance of doubt, it is not allowed to change the address label sent, as information is read on the barcode. If the address label is changed or damaged/incomplete at collection, Coolparcel and the supplier's responsibility for the safety of the shipment will be nullified, without the possibility of a claim for compensation from the Customer if the package is damaged or lost. Any additional costs associated with the handling of the package are borne solely by the Customer.
13.1 It is mandatory for customs duties and services imported/exported, and the chosen supplier or local broker conducting customs clearance is entitled to charge for customs clearance, as well as for any related expenses including, but not limited to, charges for handling, storing, returning and any destruction of the shipment.
13.1.1 It is the Customer's responsibility to be import registered, as required by applicable law, prior to ordering import shipments, and failure to register imports can result in fees and delays in which case Coolparcel 's obligations and financial liability may be reduced or forfeited.
13.2 Coolparcel is not a legal party to the shipment and in no way participates in the customs clearance process and therefore has neither responsibility nor powers in relation to the customs clearance process itself. Therefore, Coolparcel cannot change a customs clearance or related expenses in any form but can only offer to assist in communication between the parties. For the avoidance of doubt, customs and related matters are 100% the responsibility of the Customer, Coolparcel can only assist.
13.3 As a result, since Coolparcel is not a party to customs clearance, Coolparcel bears no financial responsibility for customs clearance or customs-related expenses and can only pass on same between the parties. Similarly, Coolparcel bears no responsibility for customs administrative obligations, but only provides service to assist the Customer and parties to the customs shipment, in their compliance with the authorities' administrative requirements. To be clear, the Customer has more responsibility than the recipient.
13.4 Customs and VAT expenditure will, as a rule, be collected by the beneficiary. If the consignee refuses receipt and/or refuses to pay, it is the responsibility of the consignor to cover the costs of customs handling, including, but not limited to, charges for handling, storing, returning and any destruction of the shipment. This is a global legal term that the sender assumes when ordering the shipment. In this way, a beneficiary cannot unknowingly incur an expense.
13.5 Similarly, it is the Customer's full responsibility to ensure that any other requirements, such as permits, registrations and the like, are prepared in a timely and correct manner and in accordance with applicable law.
13.6 For the calculation/specification of duties and other possible administrative requirements, Coolparcel refers to the customs authorities of the exporting and receiving country.
14.1 In the case of shipments outside the US, a customs document (also often referred to as proforma invoice/commercial invoice or similar) must be completed and one of the packages must be printed and affixed to the consignment. A further two (2) copies must be printed and given to the supplier.
14.2 In the event of errors or defects in the completion, printing, affixing and delivery of the customs document by the customer, Coolparcel 's obligations lapse and any expenses are the sole responsibility of the customer.

Coolparcel complies with the air transport rules established by the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the rules on road transport established by UN ADR and does not receive dangerous goods in its system – nationally or internationally. Local national rules also apply to road transport. Companies or private individuals who ship dangerous goods without proper labelling, documentation and packaging may be subject to significant financial and legal penalties. It is also important to remember the following when shipping goods with Coolparcel: 1. If you recycle packaging or boxes, make sure that old labels are removed. Labels labeled Dangerous Goods/Dangerous Goods on a package will cause the shipment to be restrained and examined, which will cause delays and inconvenience to you and your customer. 2. If you ship goods that could be confused with dangerous goods, if necessary, because of their unusual name, appearance, or otherwise, but are not, it would be advantageous to state clearly in the transit documents that the goods are 'not classified as dangerous goods'. This ensures that the shipment is not unnecessarily delayed. Any incorrect declarations will result in severe penalties for the sender.
