The Agent is Trustworthy and Guarantees only in Case of Negligence or Misconduct

I own a cargo company that ships goods from Istanbul to Amman. I have been shipping goods for years following a specific procedure. The goods are received on behalf of their owners, then handed over to the shipping company, which, in turn, transports them to Jordan. I recently handed over the goods to the shipping company on 24/2, and they were supposed to be shipped on 28/2. However, the shipping was delayed until 2/6, and the goods are still at the port. Due to the earthquake that occurred, the goods were damaged. Am I liable for the damages?
