Tips for Freight Shippers and Consignee Claims

Firstly, always inspect the shipment. Moreover, make sure the shrink wrap is intact. Make sure that the package/packaging material does not have signs of damage (water, crushed, torn, etc.)

In case, the shrink wrap is not intact, please mark this on the Delivery Receipt. Sometimes the Delivery Receipt has a box in the lower left corner asking if the shrink wrap is intact: Yes_ No_

When damage/shortage occurs, please make a notation on the Delivery Receipt and take photos of the damaged merchandise. For example, “boxes of item 254258 damaged/crushed”, “coils have chain damaged/chain protectors were not used”, etc. If possible, open all containers while the driver is at your facility and make notations on the Delivery Receipt.

In case of damages, contact the carrier right away.

Then, take pictures of the entire damaged product from every angle with and without flash. Include both close-up and wide angled photos of your damaged product to help the insurer assess the scale of the damage.

Importantly, DO NOT dispose of the package/packaging material. In case the carrier decides to inspect the product, the packaging will determine if the damages to the product correspond to the damages to the containers.

Moreover, please move the damaged product to a safe location. It is the duty of the consignee to keep damaged merchandise and shipping containers until they resolve the demand.

Finally, send all information to the carrier’s claims department.

VISIBLE DAMAGE / SHORTAGE: DAMAGE/ SHORTAGE IS DISCOVERED AT THE TIME OF DELIVERY.

CONCEALED DAMAGE / SHORTAGE: DAMAGE/ SHORTAGE IS DISCOVERED AFTER THE TIME OF DELIVERY.

  1. Firstly, take photos of the damaged merchandise and contact the carrier immediately to report damages.
  2. Report Concealed Damage/Shortage claim to the carrier within 5 days of the delivery date. Also, report your concealed damage claim to the carrier immediately.
  3. Then, take pictures of the product from every angle with and without flash. Include both close-up and wide angled photos of your product to help the insurer assess the scale of the damage.
  4. DO NOT dispose of the package/packaging material so you can return it.
  5. Please move the damaged merchandise to a safe location. Besides, it is the duty of the consignee to keep damaged merchandise and shipping containers to resolve the claims.
  6. The last step is to send all claim information to the carrier’s claims department.
