Freight Claims Can Be Frustrating and Time Consuming

We Manage All Types of Logistics Claims
The intent of a freight claim is to reimburse the shipper if their cargo suffers loss or damage while in the care of a freight carrier. Claimants file to the carrier for financial reimbursement to recover costs, not profits, and this is an important distinction that shippers sometimes fail to realize. There are four main types of logistics claims:
The majority of logistics claims are for products and materials that are damaged in shipment. Damage must be visible on delivery and noted on any proof of delivery.
These claims are for shipments that do not make it to their destination and no proof of delivery was ever signed.
If something falls out of a shipment or if there are errors in the bill of lading, the shipper files a shortage claim.
Concealed Damage or Concealed Shortage
Concealed claims are when the shipper or consignee notes issues with the shipment after the proof of delivery has been signed. The main challenge with this claim is that the issues are only discovered once boxes are opened and pallets broken down.
