  • CONCEALED SHORTAGE OR DAMAGE In the case of a concealed damage and/or shortage, O. S. & D., must be made aware of the situation immediately in order to launch an investigation. Therefore it is important that the receiver contact Nebraska Transport Company (N.T.C.) O.S. & D. Department as soon as possible. If your business has received a package and upon opening the package notice that the item(s) are missing or damaged, the carton and packaging should be retained and the N.T.C. Customer Service / O.S. & D. Department should be informed immediately. Please do not alter or destroy the package or its contents until N.T.C. has provided a release. Based on freight rules, N.T.C. must be given an opportunity to inspect the packaging and product in order to asses its liability. If the original packaging in not kept, N.T.C. is within its legal right to decline the claim. Concealed damages must be reported to the carrier within 15 days of shipment delivery. However, reporting the discrepancy to N.T.C. within this time frame only serves to start the inspection process to determine liability. REPORTING CONCEALED SHORTAGES OR DAMAGES • When calling it is important to have the following information available: o The tracking number (or PRO number) on the shipment or on your freight bill in the upper right hand corner. o The Purchase Order number or Bill of Lading number. Sometimes found on the packing slip. o The items missing or damaged. • Keep the original carton and packaging, as N.T.C. will want to inspect the carton. If the carton(s) is not kept, N.T.C. will not assume liability, and is within our legal right not to do so.
  • PROPER RECEIVING PROCEDURES Claims may sometimes be denied due to errors made in the receiving process. We ask that you be aware of and review the following and if they are not already a part of your receiving process, they are added in an effort to reduce the risk of claim denial: • Delivery receipts should not be signed until after the shipment has been inspected for apparent damage and/or shortage. o This process should not take more than a minute and only involves physically scanning the delivery for obvious damage to cartons, torn stretch-wrap, crushing, etc. o Signing Subject to Count or Subject to Inspection is NOT an accepted industry practice, does not legally bind the carrier and can rarely be used to substantiate a claim. • Damages such as puncture marks, crushing, open seams, torn wrap, fork lift damage, etc. should be noted on the delivery receipt; photographs should be taken when possible. o Shipments reported to be damaged should be kept intact; please do not alter or destroy the package or its contents until N.T.C. has provided a release. Based on freight rules, the carrier must be given an opportunity to inspect the packaging and product in order to assess its liability. If the original packaging is not kept, N.T.C. is within its legal right to decline the claim.
  • FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1. What is the responsibility of the customer when receiving freight from a carrier? At the time the freight is delivered (prior to the driver leaving), the receiver is responsible for verifying the quantity received matches what is shown on the delivery receipt. All items should be counted, and reviewed for visible damage and shortage. If there is damage, shortage, or overage, the discrepancy must be noted on the delivery receipt. If the discrepant items are not noted, documentation will support only a clear delivery and the cost of replacing the item(s) will be assessed on the receiver. 2. What do I do if I suspect that a portion or all of my shipment is damaged? The customer has the right to refuse the shipment or a portion of the shipment if there is visible damage and is deemed to have no value. In other words, there is no value in repairing or mitigating efforts. If the shipment or a portion of the shipment is refused, the customer should note on the delivery receipt “REFUSED DUE TO DAMAGE”. The number of cartons damaged should also be noted. The carrier will then call the shipper for disposition. The customer should call their assigned N.T.C. Customer Service Rep. or Team to report the damage. It is the duty of the consignee and the shipper to mitigate claims. 3. Damage vs. Defective? It is very important to distinguish the difference between damaged or defective product in order to determine the root cause and take corrective action. For example, if a customer receives a padlock and the lock fails to engage, it would be considered “defective” and liability falls on the Shipper. If, however, a customer receives a box of padlocks and that shows signs of mis-handling such as dents, wet boxes, etc. it is considered “damaged”, and a claim would be filed against the carrier. Please note: The carrier may need to inspect such items so unless the shipment has been refused the damaged product and packaging should be kept by the customer pending investigation. (See section on “Receiving Procedures”) 4. While opening up the cartons, I discovered damage, but I have already signed the delivery receipt “clear” and the carrier has left; what course of action do I take? While any visible damage should be noted at the time of delivery, it is understandable that at times concealed damages may occur. By law, concealed damages are to be reported to the carrier within 5 days after the shipment delivered. Keep in mind, however, this process only serves to initiate the inspection process to determine liability- it does not warrant the immediate filing of a carrier claim. Therefore, it is critical that concealed damages be reported to N.T.C. O.S.&D. Department promptly. Remember to retain the original packaging in case the carrier wishes to perform an inspection (see section on Concealed Shortages & Damages).
  • GLOSSARY BILL OF LADING Legal document used to detail the origin, destination and contents of shipment (description, weight, pieces, etc.), and to declare the responsible party and payer of freight charges. CARRIER CODE A four digit code that signifies the carrier that most likely will, or has already handled a particular shipment. CLAIM Process entered into with a carrier to recoup funds for lost or damaged product. COLLECT Carrier will bill the receiving party for the freight charges. (This does not mean that the carrier will collect cash at the point of delivery; customers preferred carrier is used with collect terms). CONSIGNEE Party to whom the shipment is addressed. DELIVERY RECEIPT Document providing delivery to a given location, showing delivery date, signature and pieces delivered. F.O.B. DESTINATION Shipper’s preferred terms. Freight on board at destination. Consignee does not take responsibility for shipment until it is delivered to the destination. F.O.B. ORIGIN Freight on board at origin. Consignee takes responsibility for the shipment at the point of shipment (these terms are rarely used). L.T.L. Less than truckload. Shipments too large to ship small parcel but not big enough to fill an entire trailer. OVERAGE A delivery where the receiver notes receipt of more cartons than showing on shipping documents. P.O.D. Proof of delivery.
  • PREPAID Shipper’s preferred terms. Carrier will bill the shipper for freight charges. PREPAY & ADD Carrier will bill the shipper for freight charges and the shipper will, in turn, bill the receiver. PRO NUMBER Invoice or tracking number associated with an L.T.L. or truckload shipment, also used for tracing. Truckload shipments are sometimes referenced with a “trip” or “load” number. RECONSIGNMENT To change the consignee’s delivery address on a shipment while it is in route to a customer (re-consignments must be authorized by the shipper or shipper’s transportation company). SHORTAGE A delivery where the receiver notes receipt of fewer cartons than showing on shipping documents. TERMINAL A carrier’s facility where shipments are processed. Transportation will commonly refer to the “delivering terminal” which is a particular facility responsible for final delivery to our customer. TRACE The process used to determine the status of a shipment in route to our customer. TRACKING NUMBER Number associated with small parcel or air shipment, also used for tracing. TRANSIT TIME The (standard) amount of time it takes for a carrier to deliver product to a given point. Transit time does not include the day of shipment, weekends or holidays. If a shipment is tendered to the carrier too late in the day, the actual date of shipment may be the next business day. TRUCKLOAD Generally used to describe large volume shipments consuming more than 24 feet of an L.T.L. carrier’s trailer or 16,000 + pounds.
  •  NTC’s Tariff is our guide to our business practices and regulations that we employ in our regular day to day operations and special circumstances.  One of the specific topics in the tariff is the addressing of Released V alue and L iability L imitations.  Let’s dig down a bit for specifics on Released V alue and Liability Limitations.  Carmack A mendment-  Governs motor carriers, freight forwarders and RR’s.
  •  Carmack A mendment (cont)  I.C.C. Termination A ct of 1995 enacted- divided Carmack into 2 parts.  49 U.S .C. 14706 – motor carriers and freight forwarders  49 U.S .C. 11706 – railroads  Carmack’s original purposes:  A dopt a uniform standard of liability for interstate surface transportation as stated in A dams Express Co. v. Croninger, 226 U.S . 491 (1932)
  •  A dams Express v. Croninger (cont)  Carmack was amended by the First Cummins A mendment which stated, a carrier must issue a bill of lading or receipt and be liable for loss, damage or injury to such property.  Codify the common law liability of common carriers liable for “ actual loss” of goods sustained while in their possession.  Created joint and several liability for originating and delivering carriers, thus ending the inconvience of shippers bringing actions against multiple connecting carriers.
  •  Carmack’s orig. purposes (cont)  Require the issuance of a uniform contract of carriage and apply its terms regardless if one was issued by the carrier to the shipper.  Put and end to the conflict in state courts over the extent of originating carrier liability.  Prohibit limitations of liability unless approved by the Interstate Commerce Commission prior to their publication.
  •  Carmack’s orig. purposes (cont)  Provide uniform time limits for the filing of claims and lawsuits.  Prescribe the place where carriers may be sued (venue)  A pply the laws governing water carriers when the loss occurred while in the water carrier’s possession.  A pply these liability provisions to re-consigned shipments
  •  Carmack’s orig. purposes (cont)  Exclude switching carriers from these provisions  Provide for the use of freight forwarder bills of lading and delivery receipts by motor carriers when delivering goods for freight forwarders.  Enable the originating or delivering carrier that was required to pay for a loss; to be indemnified by the connecting carrier over whose line the loss occurred.
  •  Released rates-  A lthough the Carmack A mendment requires railroads to assume liability for the full value of goods transported, railroads may limit their liability by providing a released rate or more clearly stated, a rate under which the goods are released at a “ value established by a written declaration of the shipper or by a written agreement between the shipper and the carrier.”  This critical provision was interpreted by the United S tates S upreme Court in A dams Express v. Croninger, to mean that a carrier could under the Carmack A mendment-
  •  Released rates (cont)-  ……by a fair, open, just and reasonable agreement limit the amount recoverable by a shipper in cases of loss or damage to an agreed value made for the purpose of obtaining the lower of two or more rates or charges proportioned to the amount of risk…….
  •  When the I.C.C. Termination A ct was enacted in 1995- this divided Carmack A mendment into 2 parts. One governing R.R.’s and one for motor carriers and freight forwarders.  B oth modes must have a bill of lading or receipt for liability and actual damages.  No uniform limit of liability for motor carriers in Carmack.  No B / issued- no reference to a carrier’s tarriff. Carrier will be L held to FUL L V A L UE LIA B ILITY !
  •  Carmack A mendment allows 5 ways to get out of a claim. A ct of God  Public Enemy  A uthority of L aw  A ct or default of shipper or owner  Inherent V ise   Courts have held a carrier is bound by provisions in Carmack
  •  S ince the previous 5 are sometimes very difficult to prove, carriers rely on 49 U.S .C. sub section 10730 of Carmack  49 U.S .C. sub section 10730- requires the shipper’s written agreement to a carrier’s offer to reduce its rate in return for the shipper’s declaration of a lower value on a shipment
  •  What Released V alue means to me?  NTC’s tariff and bills of lading explicitly address released value and liability limitations.  First lets take a look at the NTC bill of lading.  B asics first- what is a bill of lading and what does it do?  “ The bill of lading is the basic transportation contract between the shipper-consignor and the carrier; its terms and conditions bind the shipper and all connecting carriers” . S outhern Pacific Transportation Co v. Commercial M etals Co., 456 U.S . 102 (1982)
  •  B ill of lading (cont)  “ A dditionally, bills of lading are a necessary element of proving a claimant’s prima facie case in a court action” Consolidated Rail Corp v. Uhlmann Co., 1988 F ed. Car. Cas. & Refrigerated Transport Co. Inc v. Hernando Packing Co 1976  Liability Limitations on NTC’s bill of lading-  There is a liability limitation on our bill of lading and it is up to the shipper to make sure that they understand what he is covered for.

  •  B ill of lading (cont)  Each of our bills of lading cap our liability at $7.50 per pound per piece.  This is why it is important to have every shipment we originate to be on an NTC bill.  The actual hard copy of our bill of lading also states, “ ……..$7.50 per pound per piece, the actual value or NMFC release value, whichever is less.”  NM FC has specific items that have specific release values which are either higher or lower than our bill of lading.
  •  F.A .K. Pricing  Certain shippers have negotiated F.A .K. pricing. NTC’s tariff addresses those liabilities as well.  When negotiating a F.A .K. pricing contract- PL EA S E A DDRES S THE L IM ITE D L IA B IL ITY THA T NTC WIL L HA V E ON THE S E S HIPM E NTS !!!!
  • 1. Freight All Kinds (FAK) Pricing Carrier’s liability for loss or damage to any article(s) or part(s) thereof for which the charges are determined by class exception ratings or freight of all kinds (FAK) class exceptions is limited to the (1) actual invoice value of the article(s) lost, damaged or destroyed; (2) limited liability provisions of the bill of Lading; or (3) applicable limited liability provisions of the NMFC (note 1); whichever is less, subject to the maximums by exception class as shown below, unless a higher value is declared and additional charges are paid. *Maximum Liability Class Exception Per Hundredweight 50 $1.00 55 $2.00 60 $2.50 65 $4.00 70 $6.50 77.5 $7.00 85 & up $7.50 * Maximum liability per pound per individual lost or damaged piece within the shipment. (1) When a number of individual pieces have been unitized, strapped or otherwise fastened together, boxed, packaged or contained on pallets or skids, or have been over packed in additional complying package, Carrier’s liability will be determined by separately multiplying the lowest level of liability for the commodity being shipped times the weight of the total number of individual pieces lost or damaged and not on the basis of the weight of the total number of pieces.
  •  We have paid several claims to shippers for full replacement on items damaged in a F.A .K. pricing contract.  If we address what we are liable for when we sit down with the shipper, there should be no worries when it comes to filing a claim.  Here are some examples of contracts that we have with shippers that are F.A .K. pricing.

  •  A nother specific addressed in our tariff is excessive value coverage for a shipper.  We will cover, additionally, over $7.50 per pound per piece, provided the shipper declares the shipment excessive in value.  In our tariff it is addressed by the following. ITEM 781, #3- A dditional coverage for shipments with an actual value, at cost, greater than the limitations set in this item and item 780 can be obtained by contacting the Nebraska Transport Co., Inc. corporate office. The rate for additional coverage will be $0.75 per $100.00 of excess valuation subject to a minimum charge of $40.00.
  •  Excessive V alue (cont)  L ets look at a shipment to show what we can cover for a shipper and make some extra revenue!  S hipper has a box that weighs 100 lbs. Nothing marked on the bill of lading or addressed in the contract, so our liability is at $750.  S hipper says the box is worth $2,000.  Of course knowing your customers business helps you to sell them peace of mind.
  •  Excessive V alue (cont)  B ox worth $2,000  NTC Liability -$750_  B alance $1,250  A dditional Coverage to the shipper for full value  ($.75 per $100 of valuation) $1,250 /100 = 12.5  12.5 x $.75 = $9.38, would fall under $40 minimum.
  •  One very important thing to remember when doing an excessive value shipment.  Class rates are paid with ZERO DISCOUNT!
