The service is activated only if the related box on the Transport Note is filled in, and after the related payment of related fee is made, without the limit of granted damages to exceed the amount of 23,000 Lei. The extension of liability does not cover the losses and indirect or special damages (provided at Article 10 – “Exemptions”).

Otherwise, it is presumed that the ordered service was provided correctly, and that the delivery was delivered to the destination in good conditions.

For the courier service:

a) Any claim must be communicated in writing or by telephone within maximum 6 (six) months calculated from the moment the delivery was collected from the sender.

The term for filing a court claim is 1 (one) year and is calculated as follows:

For the courier service, the statute of limitation term is calculated since the date the delivery was collected (the date of submitting the postal delivery).

For shipping service, the statute of limitation term is calculated:

i) in case of loss or partial destruction, in case of delay, since the day the delivery/palletized goods was delivered to the recipient;

ii) in case of total loss, starting with the 30th day calculated after the expiry of the delivery term related to the ordered shipping service;

iii) in all the other cases, starting with the expiry of a 3 (three) months term since the date the delivery/(palletized) goods was collected.
