Freight and carriage
Claims arising from the carriage of goods are often both complex and valuable, whether you're the carrier or a bulk business user of freight services. The impact on cashflow may be critical.
Whichever side of the fence you are on, disputes in this sector will often present technical issues about standard terms and conditions, umbrella contracts, passing of risk, insurable interests, exclusions and limitations - amongst others.
Freight contracts are subject to special and sometimes surprising rules about set-offs and counter claims which are important to understand if expectations are to be realistic and strategies optimised.
We have extensive experience of litigating disputes arising from this type of contract, whether it is by standard court process or in appropriate circumstances, the use of insolvency procedures. A clear understanding of the options and fast action may be essential to success in bringing, or defending, a claim.
Whether you are a user of these services with a developing problem or a transport company dissatisfied with your speeds and rates of recovery, talk to us about what we can do for you.
