Rules for variable costs
As a sender, you must order your shipment via Green Cargo’s Customer Service by no later than 9:00 a.m. one day before your requested date for loading to commence. Deviations from these times, if any, are stated in your customer agreement.
Green Cargo will notify you as soon as possible if the shipment or type of wagons ordered cannot be made available to the sender.
Order confirmation of the shipment is sent to the customer no later than 1 hour after the order is placed, unless otherwise agreed. The confirmation includes information about the deadline for loading the wagon, the deadline for the consignment note to be submitted to Green Cargo and the estimated time of arrival at the recipient.
The applicable rules and fees charged for cancellations or modifications of an order are published in Appendix 2a under the Fees section.
The sender has a loading time limit of 8 hours – on weekdays between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., commencing as of the time that the wagon is available. Loading is considered completed once the goods have been loaded and Green Cargo has received complete freight documentation.
You have an unloading or collection time limit of 8 hours on weekdays between 7:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m., commencing as of the time that the wagon is available. Read more in “Appendix 2a,” under the Fees section.
When the wagon is unloaded, the customer must immediately send Green Cargo an unloading notification pursuant to the form and other guidelines issued from time to time by Customer Service.
Wagons and loading accessories
At Green Cargo, we are responsible for ensuring that our assigned wagons and loading accessories are in good technical condition and that the wagons are cleaned normally. If additional cleaning is required for the particular type of goods, the sender must bear the cost.
After unloading, the recipient is responsible for cleaning the wagon and restoring it to its original condition.

In the event that a customer fails to meet Green Cargo’s terms and conditions, and as a consequence, Green Cargo cannot complete a transportation assignment according to plan without incurring additional investments and/or costs (i.e., a deviation), a fee is to be charged in accordance with Appendix 2a. Fees also arise in the event of a change in availability via the customer regarding the ordered transport (i.e. a change or cancellation).
Options are a complement to Green Cargo’s basic range of transportation products. Options must be agreed upon and included in the agreement, either as a fixed option that is automatically included in the shipment order or as an on-demand option in the shipment order that is utilized from time to time, and in such cases, explicitly stated in the Order Confirmation.
