OVERVIEW OF SERVICES

Services

AS Olbtar provides international freight to Western Europe in the direction of Great Britain. Our loads are carried by semitrailers hauled by a fleet of quality trucks. Our fleet currently holds 50 sets of trucks and trailers manned by dependable, Estonian drivers.

We carry both full and partial loads. We deal with dangerous goods (ADR) on a daily basis. As a rule, we don’t use interim storage facilities, allowing us to provide faster and higher quality services.

Our main destinations for export are England, where we send around 20 trucks weekly, and France.

We import from every corner of Great Britain and Ireland and can even access areas with limited accessibility or narrow roads.

We import goods from France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg and Germany. We go to other Western European countries less often, but nonetheless welcome inquiries to those destinations as well.

Our delivery times are 4-7 days on full loads and up to 8 days on partial loads.

We use a number of tall MEGA-trailers and strong, covered XL semitrailers. These can be loaded from the back, side or top.

AS Olbtar is a member of the Association of Estonian International Road Carriers. All of our trucks and trailers are covered by CMR cargo insurance and all of our transport services are compliant with the conditions of the CMR Convention.

CMR Insurance

All AS Olbtar trucks are covered by CMR cargo insurance and comply with the CMR Convention. Clients don’t have to pay separately for CMR insurance.

The Convention on the Contract for the International Carriage of Goods by Road (the CMR Convention) regulates the relations between the parties in a cross-border road transport contract (cargo recipient, carrier and sender) pertaining to the supplying of goods from seller to buyer. (http://www.eraa.ee/doc/cmr%20konventsioon.pdf)

The carrier is responsible for loss of whole or partial cargo and damage to cargo from the moment of pick-up to delivery, as well as for delays in delivery times.

In road transport, the carrier’s liability is limited to a maximum of 8.33 SDR* per gross kilogram of cargo. The carrier is only liable for damages caused by the carrier.

The carrier is not responsible for the following:

  • damages caused by client negligence;
  • damages in loading and unloading caused by the client or third parties;
  • damages resulting from specific properties of the cargo (such as rusting, vaporization, spoilage, etc.);
  • damages caused by inadequate or lack of packaging of cargo;
  • damages caused by insufficient or lack of information given to carrier;
  • unavoidable circumstances (such as theft, traffic accidents, etc.).

We recommend that you purchase supplemental insurance for fragile or very valuable cargo.
