In one way or another, shipping is a major part of everyone’s life. There are various types of shipping, for different purposes, but one thing all types of shipping have in common is the fact that lost or damaged freight is a common and inevitable occurrence. In these instances, determining who is responsible for damaged freight (or whether it was stolen or lost) is a lengthy and difficult process.
Although shippers will never be able to prevent all instances of stolen, lost or damaged cargo, they can however, at the very least take measures to avoid future instances and make sure they are compensated for their loss. What is the best way to handle lost or damaged freight? Millennium Logistics Management suggests the following:
The most important rule of receiving freight is to not sign the Bill of Landing before checking your load for damage or missing parts. It is imperative to gather as much information/evidence as possible to receive fair compensation and avoid further improper load handling.
