By virtue of the mandate received, which shall normally be issued in writing, the Freight Forwarder shall provide for entering into the contract of carriage and for performing the relevant ancillary operations, reserving to himself full liberty of action where necessary and shall be at faculty to consolidate cargo as groupage (unless otherwise explicitly agreed in writing between the parties), always performing with utmost diligence and acting as Freight Forwarder and never as Freight Forwarder-carrier. The Freight Forwarder, unless otherwise explicitly agreed in writing between the parties, will not accept to perform the contract of shipment and/or carriage related to dangerous goods, which may cause damage to people, animals, other goods or things, or are subject to deterioration, are unpacked or have insufficient/inadequate packaging, as well as of valuables, coins, precious goods, works of art. By way of example and not limitation, dangerous goods are goods classified as hazardous by IATA, IMO, ICAO, or covered by ADR/RID regulations. In case the aforementioned goods should be entrusted to the Freight Forwarder without previous agreement, or in case the Freight Forwarder accepts instructions on the basis of wrong, incomplete or false information about the nature or value of the goods, the Freight Forwarder shall have the right to terminate the contract or, where necessary, to refuse, deposit or dispose of the goods or even destroy them in case of danger. If any of the above mentioned events shall occur, the Principal and/or the Shipper shall be held liable for any consequent damage and cost occurred. The Freight Forwarder may ask for a lumpsum payment under art. 1740 of the Italian Civil Code and in this case the Freight Forwarder will operate as such and not as Freight forwarder-carrier.
