Special Drawing Rights (SDR)

The Special Drawing Right is an international reserve asset determined and defined by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) on a daily basis.

The amount of the SDR is defined in the four most important world currencies:
U.S. Dollars, Euro, Japanese Yen, Pounds Sterling and Chinese Yuan.

The special drawing rights will come into effect at international liability claims (transport by air, sea or land) or national liability claims (land transport).

The German Commercial Code (HGB) for national transports and the CMR for international transports limit the liability of the carrier to 8,33 special drawing rights (SDR) per kilogram of the gross weight of the consignment (weight of the transported goods plus weight of the packaging).

The present amount of the SDR may be accessed at IMF >>.
