  • 1 EUR PLL = 0,4 loading meter
  • 1 FIN PLL = 1,2 x 1,0 x 2,2 m
  • 1 FIN PLL = 925 kg
  • 1 FIN PLL = 0,5 loading meter


  • 1 cbm = 167 kg

Seafreight (LCL)

International Commercial Terms (Incoterms)
Within international trade, a number of clauses, Incoterms, are used that are prepared by the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC). These describe the buyers’ and sellers’ risks, liability and obligations in international trade. Incoterms 2010 replaces Incoterms 2000 and came into effect on 1 January 2011.

You should be aware that as NTG Global’s liability as a transporter is limited, it does not cover the full loss. A transport insurance should therefore be considered a necessary supplement.
It is therefore very important that you remember to take out a separate transport insurance. You are then insured in the best possible way if misfortune should strike.
At NTG Global, we cooperate exclusively with renowned insurance companies, and we are happy to help you arrange insurance. Simply get in touch with your usual contact person at NTG Global, and we will help you throughout the process.
