DHL contracts with Shipper on the basis that DHL's liability is strictly limited to direct loss only and to the per kilo/Ib limits in this Section 6. All other types of loss or damage are excluded (including but not limited to lost profits, income, interest, future business), whether such loss or damage is special or indirect, and even if the risk of such loss or damage was brought to DHL's attention before or after acceptance of the Shipment since special risks can be insured by Shipper. If a Shipment combines carriage by air, road or other mode of transport, it shall be presumed that any loss or damage occurred during the air period of such carriage unless proven otherwise. DHL's liability in respect of any one Shipment transported, without prejudice to Sections 7-11, is limited to its actual cash value and shall not exceed the greater of $US 100 or: Claims are limited to one claim per Shipment settlement of which will be full and final settlement for all loss or damage in connection therewith.

Subject to condition 12 below we limit our liability for any loss, damage or delay of your shipment or any part of it as follows:

a) Carriage by air If the carriage of your shipment is solely or partly by air and involves an ultimate destination or a stop in a country other than the country of departure the Warsaw Convention (1929), or the Warsaw Convention as amended by the Hague Protocol (1955) and/or Montreal Protocol No. 4 (1975), or the Montreal Convention (1999), whichever is compulsorily applicable will apply. These international treaties govern and limit our liability for loss, damage or delay to your shipment to 17 special drawing rights per kilo (approximately £14 per kilo although the rate of exchange is variable).

b) Carriage by road If we carry your shipment by road within, to or from a country that is a party to the convention on the contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road 1956 (CMR) our liability for loss or damage to your shipment shall be governed by the CMR and thus limited to 8.33 special drawing rights per kilo (approximately £7 per kilo although the rate of exchange is variable). In the case of delay where you can show to us you have suffered loss our liability is limited to refunding to you the charge you paid us for carriage in respect of that shipment or the part which was delayed.

c) If none of the above conventions apply and we have a liability to you for whatever reason including breach of contract, negligence, wilful act or default our liability to you for loss, damage, misdelivery or non-delivery of your shipment or the part affected is limited to the actual cost incurred by you to acquire or repair the shipment or the part affected with in each case an upper limit that does not exceed £15 per kilo limited to a maximum of £15,000 per shipment. In the case of delay where you can show to us you have suffered loss our liability is limited to refunding to you the charge you paid us for carriage in respect of that shipment or the part which was delayed.
