Manager’s Guide to Freight Loss and Damage Claims — Third Edition

Like the first edition, a real-world, practical approach on how to deal with the twin problems of freight damage and freight loss. Author Colin Barrett discusses both the law and the reality of freight claims--understandably and succinctly--so that shippers and carriers alike can understand their rights and their responsibilities in dealing with loss and damage problems. In this new and expanded edition, Barrett has updated key areas in accordance with changes in the law and court decisions, and has added a wealth of further information. Written in clear, descriptive language; the plentiful legal references appear as footnotes. The meat of the book is easy to get to, and the footnotes are there when you need them.

Too often legal discussions seem to be (to coin a phrase) of the lawyers, by the lawyers and—most regrettable of all—for the lawyers. Even those that purport to be in “plain English” wind up so riddled with legalistic phrasings and case citations that the lay reader is soon gasping with the effort to keep up. The law is important to everyone. And understanding the law is important to everyone. This book can help promote that understanding.

Motor Carrier Contracts Annotated

20 years in the making! The only such resource available today!!
This is a contract form book with complete contract templates and a CD-ROM designed for easy use by shippers and their attorneys.
The contracts include optional provisions with comments and instructions on how to use, allowing the user to tailor the contracts for individual clients or situations.

Why spend valuable time and money to “reinvent the wheel”?

Overview of Motor Carrier Contracting:

Prior to 1980, virtually all transportation provided by motor carriers moved according to the terms and conditions of the Uniform Bill of Lading as contained in the National Motor Freight Classification. This is why the Bill of Lading was often referred to as the “contract for carriage.” After 1980, shippers and carriers began to negotiate individual contracts. The primary motivation for shippers to negotiate individual contracts is to avoid the “unintended consequences” and tariff “surprises and traps” which are typically found in a carrier’s private tariffs, terms and conditions, service guide, etc. These could relate to limits of liability for loss and damage, accessorial charges, or other “special charges”, late payment penalties, and other items which a shipper would not knowingly agree to prior to doing business with a carrier. The drafting philosophy of the Contract template is to be “shipper friendly” in that its terms are generally more favorable to a shipper than those that would be found in a carrier’s own tariffs or terms and conditions. However, at the same time it is drawn so as to not be so onerous for a carrier that a carrier would automatically reject it.
