If it can be proved that the loss or damage occurred while the Goods were in the custody of an inland carrier the liability of the Carrier and the limitation thereof shall be determined in accordance with the inland carrier’s contracts of carriage and tariffs, or in the absence of such contracts or tariffs, in accordance with the internal law of the State where the loss or damage occurred.

Whenever the value of the Goods is less than such an amount this value in the calculation and the adjustment of claims for which the Carrier may be liable shall for the purpose of avoiding uncertainties and difficulties in fixing values be deemed to be the invoice value plus freight and insurance, if paid, irrespective of whether any other value is greater or less.
(3). Higher compensation may be claimed only when, with the consent of the Carrier, the value of the Goods declared by the Shipper which exceeds the limits laid down in this clause has been stated in this Bill of Lading. In that case the amount of the declared value shall be substituted for that limit. Any partial loss or damage shall be adjusted pro rata on the basis of such declared value.

In any event, the Carrier shall be discharged from any liability unless suit is brought within one year after delivery of the goods or the date when the Goods should have been delivered.
