QUICK CHECK LIST
Only trained personnel should receive the freight.
Always compare ALL documents before signing the freight bill.
Be sure the freight bill is Signed and Dated by the delivery driver.
Sign for goods in the location where physically delivered.
Make sure every package shows "your company name" as the consignee.
Verify the piece count: Sign only for Units as shown on the bill and received as such. Always sign for freight exactly as received (assume nothing).
Verify the method of tender, how goods were billed/shipped against the manner of receipt (how the goods were actually received) - Note on the freight bill any variation in the packaging or count.
Directional Markings: Note on the freight bill the improper position of any package. .
Note Tiltwatch or Shockwatch devices when "RED."
Method used to seal containers: Are they all identical? Are some banded and others taped? Different kinds of tape - assorted colors? Boxes all taped but staple holes are present?
Containers: Are they shipper originals, reused, damaged? Pallets: Are they unusual, broken, flimsy - not the type ordinarily received. Are some shrinkwrapped and others banded?
Inspect the freight: Check for open boxes. Damaged containers (punctured, torn, buckled, crushed). Ruptured tape (edges of box). Open and Inspect any package showing probability of damage. Record any Packaging/Container damage on the freight bill. ie: Record any Missing/Altered packaging materials (tape, banding etc.). Avoid vague or general statements. Example: "1 Box short" (incorrect). Always identify the products short or damaged, if possible. Indicate the quantity and type of merchandise damaged. Show model and serial number, or similar product identification.
"The freight bill is only `prima facie' evidence that the shipping container or its contents, were received in "good order". Where there are no exceptions on the freight bill to indicate loss or damage at time of delivery, the burden of providing such "clear and convincing evidence" rests with the claimant. Often such evidence is determined following a detailed inspection, usually performed by an outside agency at the request of the carrier or another interested party.
The Gulf of Mexico oil spill shows just how important marine cargo insurance is to protecting against commercial export losses. Marine cargo insurance is a form of export insurance that covers goods during their shipment to a foreign country overseas.
Marine cargo insurance companies provide financial reimbursement for financial losses if exported goods are damaged or destroyed before delivery to the importer. Marine cargo insurance is also called freight insurance, maritime insurance, ocean marine insurance or simply marine insurance.
The most comprehensive type of marine cargo insurance is called All Risks coverage.
Marine Insurance Exclusions
Most marine cargo insurance policies do not reimburse for losses caused by improper packing or when customs officials reject the delivered goods.
Other freight insurance policies exclude claims for:
•Importers failing to pay
•Spoilage or other damages due to the product’s nature
•Losses caused by shipping delays
•Damages at port cities more than 15 days after cargo was unloaded.
