How To File a Claim

Filing a Claim

All claims for shortage or damage must be made at the time of delivery to consignee or his agent, if the packages or containers show exterior signs of damage.  Claims for Non delivery of shipment must be presented to the Cargo Forwarder within 30 days from date of accrual.

 

Suits based upon claims arising from shortage, damage or non delivery of shipment shall be instituted within sixty (60) days from the date of accrual of the right of action.

 

Failure to make claims or to institute judicial proceeding as herein provided shall constitute a waiver of the claim or right of action.
