Claiming Against Third Parties

Most marine cargo loss or damage arises while the goods are in the care custody or control of a third party.

Most carriers’ or forwarders’ trading conditions require claims to be made within a specified (usually short) time period, particularly where loss or damage was not noted on arrival.
