Carrier liability is the standard liability offered by the carrier for a shipment, in the event of loss or damage (e.g. up to $100 for a small package, or $25/lb. for LTL). Excess liability refers to the shipper’s purchase of excess-value coverage (e.g. more than the carrier’s standard liability), up to the cost of the shipment, offered by the carrier in the event of loss or damage. Carrier liability is based on small-print terms and a web of governing statutes, some of which date to the 1930s. Different statutes cover different modes, as well as international vs domestic shipping. But at their core, all the statutes allow carriers to limit their exposure and exempt a variety of situations from their liability.
